Bottle. Pours - as visible from the clear bottle - clear golden with a nice small head. Aroma butter, british hops. Butter, caramel. Surprisingly close to the not watered down version. Not Bad.

Tempting color, tickles the nose. More acidy than the stronger version and less bitter, less hops, less aroma, less everything, but still not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2009 Nice fruity aroma, not much wrong with its dark amber colour, strong fruity taste, a bit nutty and spicy, a little bit watery but still leaves a distinct taste.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: The smell is sweet toffee, brown bread, sour fruit notes, green apple peel, some fresh mowed lawn.
Appearance: The beer is clear copper amber, a slightly orange hued off-white head, rather high, settles slowly, leaves good lacing.
Taste: Upfront malt sweetness, molasses, then some riper fruits, pears, then a rather sharp chemical bitterness.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, rather thin and watery, lack of body, a dry twinge at the end that fades away rather slowly.
Overall: This beer is better in it’s stronger version, at this ABV it becomes a bit sharp and watery.
Note: Bottle 500 ml. Reviewed 2011-01-22.

Fizzy carbonation, light body and feel, almost watery, malting on top: bread, nuts, lightly roasted caramel, finish also malty and bitter, dry and bitter. Bit thin but ok flavors still.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Cardinal. Clear amber with a small creamy white head that lasts. Fair lacing. Tobacco dominates the aroma, both in nose and mouts, but there are other malty notes lurking. Hops are all used for bitterness it seems and there are also sweet flavors there with a toasted tobacco linked character. Medium bodied and vaguely syrupy.
