2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market. Clear amber, pond scum head. Strong but not overly pleasant sweet winey malt aroma, like a supercharged macro lager. Tastes of strong alcohol but hopless and sweet malt - again, like a supercharged macro lager. Smooth. Not great.

In short this beer from beginning to end is a big malt bomb. The only thing keeping it from being cloyingly sweet is the hefty abv. Personally I like this in a dopplebock. This is one to sip on a rainy night in front of a roaring fire.

Bottle. Color is amber with medium head with short duration. Aroma is malty, quite sweet.. Taste the same,but the alcohol is not well balanced, too much for this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes - light pale deep straw pour with light white head. Nose is corn, grain, malt and sweet caramel. Flavor is sweet light malt, corn and grain again. No toast or bread... smooth and sweet. Light to medium body. Not a favorite.

Pours a clear golden colour with a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is a rich pale maltiness and a slight noble hop presence. Flavor is sweet, toffee, honey, mild hop presence, overall a decent crisp beer.

33cl bottle. Pours orange amber with decent head but not to lasting. Very strong aroma, very sweet. A bit hard to drink, feels creamy in mouth. Flavor is sweet, fruity, notes of honey. Not a beer to drink every day

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home,
Clear light amber with a white head, quickly gone. Aroma heavy malty (caramel) and alcohol. Flavor medium+ sweet, notes of sugar, much alcohol, light burning in my throat. Thin body despite the strength.
