3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(500 ml bottle). Ruby (rather: reddish brown) colour, very low head. Vinous aroma, full malty flavour, slightly alcoholic, good bitterness. Despite it being called a "table beer" (with robust foods) by the brewers, I would rather call it a typical "sipping beer". Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok, i thought it quite similiar to the Twany, but a little less malty, and slightly more hoppy, a bit of a vanillan flavour in the their aswell, decent, and smooth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Pasteurised. This was drunk in two parts. I started it last night, and I was thoroughly enjoying it, when I fell ill. My last words as I staggered upstairs to the toilet were "Save that beer in the fridge for me." And now I'm finishing it off. Of course, the oxidised flavours of a pastuerised beer are more apparant the next day when all the fizz has gone, but the firm mouthfeel, and the sultana fruits and brown sugar are still there. I should imagine this would be excellent in the cask.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Dark, brownish red with a smallish, tanned head. Mild, fruity and caramely aroma. Sweetish, caramely and toffeeish flavor with pine, anise and low, lingering bitterness. Medium-bodied, sticky-syrupy and low-carbonated palate. A quite enjoyable, smooth and balanced, spicy ale, but nothing very special. Feels more like a dessert drink than a substitute for red wine.

Golden brown and very sweet.The sweetness takes over and makes it hard to say anything else about the beer.
