Bottle from Cornelius. Murky ruby body with lots of yeast flecks floating around. Medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, orange and strawberry. Flavour of orange, juicy tomato and caramel biscuit. Faint spice. Thin body with an oily texture. Light fizz. Good flavour but it could with a bit more body.

bottle poured creamy & magenta with a mild fruity hoppy aroma the taste is mighty fine bitter with lots of hops without being intense along with toffee caramel malty & fruity flavours, a bigger bottle would be nice it was gone before I’d realised

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Cloudy amber brown with slightest head. Pleasant and unusual aroma - toffee, Christmas pudding, slight smokiness. Medium body with creamy soft carbonation. Unusual taste that keeps you trying it if only to understand what it is. There’s some light toffee malt sweetness in background, but this is overlaid by a vinous and slightly spicy flavour. The vinous and tarter notes mellow with some soft bitterness in the finish. Overall, a bit odd, but strangely compelling.

A bit too hoppy for mine, but a nice-drinking amber nevertheless. On tap at the Wheaty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful looking amber ale. Creamy white head with solid lacing. Aroma is a toffee with slight hints of vanilla and grape. Slightly hoppy but smooth caramel and toffee flavours with a hint of burnt orange. Amazing palate; smooth as silk. Nice and dense with a beautiful mouth coat. Enough carbonation to tickle. Great.

Raisin and prune aroma. Head dissipated very quickly. Cloudy appearance. Tastes like plum and trifle. Heavy mid palate weight, with no noticeable alcohol burn. Chewy caramel flavours and slight cinnamon edge.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber pour with no head and practically no carbonation. Aroma is boozy, fruit cake, butterscotch. Taste reminds me of christmas cake batter, boozy soaked fruit and sweet. Nice...
