3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear and carbonated red with a huge solid head that slowly began to resemble a tree stump. British crystal malt, minerals, CO2 and spicy hop aroma. Straightforward caramel malt flavor, fruioty and clean + lightly tart with supporting maltiness. A bit oxidized. Finishes with perfect bitterness and lingering sticky hops. Pretty good but I would like to have it on draught.

Keg at Cerveceria Oldemburg, march 07. Slight herbal aroma, but very shy. Mild flavor, some crystal malts and a pleasant, lingering bright bitter finnish, not bad nor good. Shinny golden color with a creamy, thick white head. Creamy and gentle MF. A good, reliable, keg session bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper-red and has a rich, frothy head compaired to many similar ales. Malty aroma mixed between grain and caramel. I didn’t really pick upon the spicy aroma mentioned in the bottles description, but it does come through in the flavour. The flavour remains malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. A pretty decent ale overall.
