3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
XS Bottle. Pours hazy copper with an off-white film on top. The aroma is fairly caramel malt forward with a little bit of a booziness. Taste is on the sweet side with a lot of that caramel taste and a little alcohol warmth on the finish. There is also some bitterness on the finish. This is pretty good.

20th September 2009
Hazy amber beer. Softish palate but with a carbonated sting. A little creamy malt and then mild hop bitterness. Quite minerally. Decent but lacking something, perhaps a little watery. Hard to criticise but doesn’t make the top tier.

(7oz bottle) Cloudy brown-copper with a small tan head. Toasted caramel malt aroma, sweet; pine hops. Flavor is very sweet and moderately bitter; lots of fruit up front (orange, grape, apple), acidic, pine notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Alcohol is surprisingly evident.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Caramel and bread in the aroma. Taste starts sweet with a little spice, and finishes smooth with bittering hops that provide balance without overpowering. Carbonation gives a creamy mouthfeel. Really, really good.

Keg, Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, 03/04/12. Muddy ruby with barely a skim of beige.That sickly, peachy US malt-sodden thing; peach iced tea, redcurrant wine gum. Sweet tinned peach, peach-flavoured barley water and strawberry aroma. Not for me.

Cloudy dark orange to copper red beer, very small white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet forest fruits, mainly strawberries. MF: good carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet start, very fruity, strawberries, raspberries, bubble gum, sweet malts, touch of honey. Aftertaste: still a bit sweet, citrus, some grapefruit, nice hoppy and fruity bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
7oz bottle - pours cloudy amber with nice beige head and some lacing. Nose is basement aromas, caramel and walnuts. If I didn’t know any better, based on nose alone, I would have thought this was a Belgian trippel or ABT. Aroma is caramel, nuts and herbal hops. Taste is sweet at first, but gradually bitter. Finish is almost dry. Sticky mouthfeel. Warm going down. I will remember this!
