3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned 500ml’s, poured carefully into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 2 Nov 2012 @ home some 5 months before it’s best before date of 30 Mar 2013.
Toffee apple/copper body with a thin white head.
Mixed bag of flavours in the nose and taste: malts foremost but with floral and citrus hop notes behind the biscuity light maltiness that just wins the battle for dominance.
Nice blend, semi-sweet overal but with enough hop presence to keep the beer in check and give it a mini-bitterness towards the end of each gulp.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fruchtkuchen und aromatischer Hopfen im Aroma und im Geschmack. Dazu vollmundiger Antrunk und honigartige Geschmeidigkeit. Der leichte citrus Hopfen macht das Geschmackserlebnis perfekt. Glorious stuff!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5l bottle, Ogi brought from France we think. "World’s #1 beer" it claimed. Caramel brown, foamy tan head. Black tea aroma, sweet hops too. Lighter body, jicy iced tea. Fruity hops with bolder malts, caramel ale. Good

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ogi’s. Poured a bronze body with a small tan head that went away slowly. Sticky malt & cascade nose. Not bad. The taste is tea-like (how appropriate), a solid malt backbone and aroma hops. Dry. Not as nice as Proper Job but still a respectable beer. Claims to be the best beer in the world or something like that... and while unimpressive, it’s better than most others who do that.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, thanks mowbeer. Rusty amber with a fair bit of fizz; aroma of red berry and vanilla; some blanket bitterness, soda, rum’n’raisin, kind of all goes together well

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5l bottle. This is a clear bronze one with some small floaters floating around and a little bubbly quite lacing off-white head. On the aroma this is light sweet and malty, some caramel and tones of dried dark fruits. Not horrible at all, but not extreme either. It has a really nice texture in the mouth; small prickling and almost fizzing bubbles in a soft oily texture. Flavors are also caramel sweet, the burned kind and I also get tones of leafs and sour grass. Yeah, this was actually quite a nice little surprise. Have no problems recommending this to my "skeptic" friends. 27.06.2012
