Amber-burgundy colour. Aroma is light, with treacle notes and a slight peach fruitiness. The body is light, but offers a vibrant character. Toffee and light orange notes abound, but are drowned out by too much alcohol in the finish.

Awsome clear red color. Very fruity nose...like sticking your head in a basket of dried fruit. Carmel sweet malt, and maybe a bit too much sweetness. Very fruity flavor as well. Not bad. A possible lay-away.

Brown color which when held to the light reveals a nice dark amber hue. Light tan creamy looking head. Candied date aroma. Caramel, oak and alcohol flavors. Harsh and overbearing when cool. Seems to mellow, as it warms. Nice malty linger.
