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

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.

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...

Copper amber small - medium white head. Smells.. boozy stone fruits, honey/sweet malts, hints of spice. Tastes..booze soaked fruits, stone and darker fruits..plums almost Belgian ale style, some spice, a little heat from the alcohol and a bit metallic. Got better as it warmed a little.

The head is very good, body brown, a lot CO2. It smells hoppy, maltaromatic, interesting, a bit fruity. The taste is aromatic, malty, fruity, hoppy, but also strange-metal.
