3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours velvety yellow with huge top diminishing super fast, no lasing. On nose it comes dominant yeasty-fruity plus malt sweet, sugary a bit, touch of honey, warm alcohol aroma but not alcoholic if I can say so. Flavor is light astringent, sweet, a bit caramely with dry, min bitter from yeast. Honey like sweetness. As a strong ale it is deep fermented, dry, plus sweetened with some kind of sugar - but enough to be good implemented in flavor. Medium plus body, slick texture, soft carbonated. I liked this, but maybe someone could say it is too strong or yeasty or there is too much sugar adjuncts.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Was expecting a lot for this beer based on the feedback from EBBC reviews. It poured and an amber gold and had a sparsely bubbled thin head, The aroma was very much banana and clove. To taste it then became full of apples and pears and some sticking plaster. It was quite thin bodied and dry which did make it easy to drink. The beer was nice, but not one id revisit.

Cask at the White Horse. It pours deep golden yellow, with a thin bubbly, white head. The nose is honey, sulphur, spice and lemon. The taste is honey, caramel, spice, ginger, hay, straw, soap and wood. It is initially sweet, but finishes up with lots of spice and some bitterness. Light to medium body (thinner than expected) and soft carbonation. Interesting stuff.
