3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a medium cream colored head. Aroma of spice is pronounced; almost like a mulled wine. Cinnamon or nutmeg? Full bodied, malty, sweet with a taste of hops. Surprisingly spicy. I have mixed feelings about this beer. I like a malty, winter weather ale, but there is something almost metallic in the taste. Perhaps it’s the water. Overall, not bad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bold sweet dark fruit aroma. Dark ruby colored body with a strong one in head that fades to a light coating. Smooth malt taste with a light fruit sweetness. Some bitterness in the back of the palate. Finishes on the dry side with a malt background.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Pours with a glowing clear orange colour, medium rocky white head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of bread, and slightly tomedium hoppy, with notes of herbs. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, quite intense and well-balanced. Medium to full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, medium lasting malty finish. Very good session beer.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark amber, ivory head.
Attractive aromas of pears simmered in red wine, wheat flour, milk chocolate and raisins.
Low carb. Flat and short-lived. Low bitterness. Taste isn’t so attractive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark copper with an off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong malt, slight raisin and maybe slight bread. Flavour is upfront malty plums with a slight warm bitter finish. Not really in the true style of a pale ale in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sehr angenehmer Malzduft mit leichten Aromen nach Zuckerrübensirup. Im Geschmack dann vordergründig viel Karamell, leider im Nachgeschmack irgendwie zu bitter.

Karamellig-nussiger Geruch. Im Geschmack dann ein wenig seltsam, wenig bitter. Leicht sauer. Trocken, aber recht langweilig.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A beer wearing a beautiful dark copper skin. Thin white head that doesn’t last long but does leave decent lacing behind. Light but steady carbonation bubbles rise.
Aromas are on the light side. There is a bit of nuttiness, maybe some ripe red fruits, and a hint of malts.
The tastes start off a bit weak and mainly bready, but finish very strong, with red berries dancing in the throat on the swallow. Really nice finish on this beer. I’d have to admit, I’d buy more of this one.
