The aroma is sweet and nutty with floral hops, yeast, caramel, toffee, and fruit. The appearance is hazy amber with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma but more bitter than expected. The palate is thin. Overall a pretty good example of the style.

BeerBunker (709) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle. Pours copper with a white head. Very heavily carbonated. Aroma is of caramel, bread, fruit, and spice. Taste is of malt, caramel, weak fruit, bread, and spice. Very dry breadiness to the whole mess. Lingering spice taste. Too damned bready. It wasn’t a beer I had to choke down, but I did not enjoy drinking it.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Copper, thick white head. Toffee and caramel aroma, with a touch of spice, as well. Flavor is sweet (the label say treacle, so I’ll go with that) and very bready or muffiny. Dryish finish.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle, 4.5%. Weak fruity aroma. Clear dark amber colour. The flavour is fruity and refreshingly citric. Not a distinct beer, but well-balanced.
