2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Coppery red pour with a ton of uber thick head. The head looks like sponge toffee. Clivy spicy scent. Sweet. Very sweet. A bit sticky. Low carbonation it must have all come out in the head. Not really enjoying this. Regret buying a pitcher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from B&M, Birmingham. Not too bad this. Had elements of a nice Bock - brown sugar, dark mushy malt grass, some warmth (not much but some). Smooth enough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper coloured, good thickish white head. Lovely nose of spice/malt/caramel/herbs. Smooth, malty palate with toffee and spice creeping in on the finish, good body, and a nice long finish.....really like this, especially at 50p from B&M, I just bought one bottle, I’ll head back down tomorrow, hopefully they’ll have had a delivery!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a while ago (obviously)
Copper color with a large head with a nice amount of lacing, solid. Sweet malts and light alcohol in aroma along with light chocolate, light fruit, caramel, and maybe baking (cookies?) Flavour is similar with caramel, malts, fruits and a hint of spice. Finish isn’t strong enough at the end but it works quite well for a winter brew. Solid work.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful beige foam and a lovely caramel flavor with notes of orange peel. Beautiful rich spices characterize the taste and add a little cinnamon, orange peel and a little cilantro. Wheat malt shines a little through and it’s fine for a beer in the winter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle from B&M Bargains - Clear copper body, with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is up front with metallic notes, followed by faint traces of floral notes, fruit, and caramel. As for taste, it’s mostly caramel, and doughy notes, with some faint sourness, a light floral taste, metallic hops, and a fruity finish. Not bad at all really for 79p!
