3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Our Glass bottle with a bit of crumpet on the label. Not dated. Pours clear ruby with everlasting head (and great lacing down the side of the glass too). Smooth body with soft fizz. Caramel and raisin malt backbone. The hops hit the back of the throat to dry it out. As it warms, fruity esters really come through, but too warm and there’s sherry booziness to it. Still a really good British beer, but pricey here in the States.

Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours deep redish copper with a small, off-white film head. Soft fruity aroma, a little toffee and English liquorice. Medium carbonation, fine mouthefeel. Great taste. Lots of toffee, light liquorice, sweet chocolate. A long and lingering chocolate, hoppy and dry aftertaste. Really lovely.

500. Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a loose and sudsy tannish head. Sharply tart nose in a way that seems to come from out of nowhere; raw and overripe and strawberryish, almost kinda grand-cru-ish. Odd, but you could see why they might want to go this way. Figs and dry leaves as well. Medium body, not much character in the way of creaminess or anything. Figs, raisins, and a bit of strawberry on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Clear copper with small creamy beige head, nice circular lacing. A bit like drinking a weak port but nevertheless a very drinkable beer. some spicy wheat and hops in there Aftertaste is pleasant and rather gentle considering the 6 per cent strength.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as Our Glass. Earthy malty aroma. Amber color with a two finger beige head. An old ale aroma for sure. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is malt with something like medium dark or dried light stone fruit. This is great stuff. The mildly roasted malt is set off by some bitter hop. I can’t describe it, so you must just try it. It is very, very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ourglass - I thought this was pretty thin overall and devoid of any compexity. Slightly bitter upon first taste, sour, dried fruits, somewhat astringent and some light bready maltiness.
