3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle conditioned. Always wanted to try this beer, and after more than 25 years of serious beer tasting, now the time has come. Light gusher, amber color. Vinous aroma with raisin, apple and a hint of hops. Sweetish hopbitter flavor with hints of laurel and apple. Butterscotch. Long nutty bitter aftertaste. An OK experience, but not a dream come true.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle conditioned, and lively enough to attempt to pour itself. Luckily I got there first. pours a good bronze, well carbonated with big creamy head which clings to the glass - if I hadn’t poured it myself I’d swear this was on cask. Very classy - aroma brisk and hoppy with a hint of spiciness. Palate smooth and full, lingering bitterness and malty notes. Great balance of richness and prominent hoppy freshness - great for a hot day, I can see this going down well as an early IPA. Great beer.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 Will have to revisit mine was a bottle from Topper’s in Helana Montana and it was oxidized. Notes of malt, hops and cardboard. Page 499 of Michael Jackson’s Great Beer Guide. Had recently at the source and it was FUCKING AMAZING and the head could be eaten with a spoon.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2007 This has got to be mmy favourite bottle conditioned ale.
It tastes of currants and ginger to me, and its very moreish.
So good I have a case of it!
Also be carefull pouring it, as has been said before the yeast is so lively it tries to pour itself!
