Aroma has strong likeness to raisin bread with a strong dried fruit note and a cakey breadiness backed by a hint of spice. Flavour adds a hint of bitterness and a gentle sweetness. A good beer if not an amazing one.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at some random Sheps pub in Kentshire. It pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is earth, toasty, caramel, candy and light spice. The taste is caramel, toasted sugar, wood, plenty of alcohol, spice, earth, chewy malt and candy with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty dull and not depth whatsoever. Alcohol seems to dominate. Not great at all...

(Bottle). Fruity aroma with hints of malt, grassy hops and spices. Taste of caramel malt, butterscotch and vanilla with sour and dry bitterness in the finish, prominent taste of alcohol. The scent is okay but the taste is miserable!

Raw hoppy nose.
Nice copper colour, very little white head, fainting rather quickly.
Wonderful taste ... Malty, spicy and .. rich.
Brew is well balanced, malty and hoppy lingers the mouth after swollowing.
Very nice brew.

A great version of the streamline ale, hoppy and fruity, with a interesting strength and a longing sour aftertaste

Det här var en rätt juste sak med en kraftfull smak som bar toner av malt, råsocker och dov fruktighet. Kroppen var stabil och balansen närvarande.

500ml bottle on the Rotterdam-Hull ferry. Quite a strong boozy taste to this with plenty of spices jumping out in front of a solid sweet maltiness.
