3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s dark golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, light perfumed fruit and yeast. The sweet flavour has notes of caramel, light fruit, spicy yeast and hints of chocolate. The body is quite full, and it’s easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki) Shared with Mirjukka - thanks!
Very sweet aroma, fruity and a kttle cakey. Rich red, small head. Spicey, and a little bit cakey. Soft carbonation. Smooth sweet cakey palate. This hs aged moe than adequately, but it’s still too sweet and sticky. Not unpleasant, but just too sloppy and brash.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL fliptop courtesy of ryan. Poured a clear orange to amber with a small, white head leaving small, spotty lace. Nose is apple cider, non-oxidized red apples, overripe pear. Taste is all malty, soft, rich oatmeal malty with clover honey and very moderate spice. Chewy, starchy palate. Soft carbonation. Pretty much a textbook example of perfect malt extraction.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle that I picked up at Carrefour, Citi Europe, Calais, 31-10-09 consumed 04-12-09 Pours clear amber with very thin white head. Initially this a little sweet in the mouth with the alcohol very evident and whilst warming its maybe a touch harsh. Some spiciness, bit of fruit seeped in alcohol, touch of caramel another fairly average beer to end a slightly disappointing beer week. A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov12 3.1
