3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - pours dark ruby with a diminishing off white head. It’s of sweet malt, cereal, light fruit, grassy and malt aromas you’d get in the mash. Taste is sweet up front which lingers for a long time before the dry finish comes in from the top of the mouth, the whole thing lasts for ages. Carbonation is low and the mouthfeel is sooth and silky.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish brown colour, nice head with good lacing. Aroma is initially of resin, then more floral, with nice sweet malty backbone. Light bitterness, does not dominate the beer, but seems just enough. Medium body, lively carbonation. Very good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear orange brown color with a tight, dense light brown head. The smell is caramel, fruit, citrus and licorice. The taste matches the smell but in a more subdues way ending a bit bitter and quite dry. Light in body with crisp carbonation.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color - dark amber, reddish. Foam - White, not abundant, medium-grained and unstable, but sticky - all settled on the walls. Fragrance - fantastic - plenty of fruit, honey, flowers - very aromatic hops! Taste - a complex, fascinating - begins with fruit sweetness, goes into the hop bitterness in the background - caramel flavor, long finish is dry, bitter but pleasant aftertaste. Lovely Bitter!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Very nice aroma of peach, strawberries, light caramelly malt and subtle notes of tea. Dry, sessionable, unfortunately a tad watery. Nice biscuit notes in the flavour but also a less pleasant, bone-dry finish. Ok.
