3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I love the way it looks, dark, murky, with a thick extra creamy head. Aromas and flavours are very sweet, with maple syrup, malts and honey. Very woody and earthy. Good old stuff. Not much of a bitterness there, but we already knew in old times that hops, that continental innovation, clearly had the side effect of making men soft.

Fľaša. Tmavšia jantárová farba, pena skoro žiadna. Vôňa orieškov, ovocia, a samozrejme sladu. Chuť prázdna, trošku kyselkavá, karamelová.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This ale makes me wish I still lived in England. Fairly strong aroma of malts, biscuit raisin and a hint of banana. Pours a dark earthy red/brown with a thin tan head that sadly dissipates. Feels very smooth in the mouth and has an great taste of malts, caramel, raisin and again a hint of banana. A great ale, I am jealous of everyone who can buy it in the supermarket!
