Oh my g.., this is the best beer I have ever drunk! It has got a delicious fruity taste. The smell is fruity and great. The color is just awesome. No head, but I suspect that is becuase of a washing brush that I have used for washing the dishes.

An excellent English ale that dangerously hides itís strength. One to enjoy at the end of a session as youíd likely not be standing if it was the session brew. Very tasty and highly recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought I had rated this beer ages ago, but apparently not. I just love the sweetness of it. Caramel and cellar fruits all the way, from aroma to taste. Lovely dark copper colour. Unctuous but still medium bodied. Great ale.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle bought at Oliverís Delicatessen in Central.
Mostly clear amber honey colour, slightly cloudy hazy, with trace of dirt like yeast sediments; One finger head and crumpety off-white foam which last for 1 minute; Good sticky lacing and active carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of grapefruit, jackfruit, light pineapple, sweet tropical fruits, malt, light caramel, sugar, fruit cake, and light grass. Trace of banana smell becomes evident as the beer warms; Pleasant, mid to light sweet taste of ale malt, with burnt caramel / toffee, light grapefruit, medium liquorices, dark fruits, strong lime, citrus and strong herbal grassy hops; Full body, slick and rich palate; Taste profile is medium sweet and very hoppy ale malt with good touch of burnt toffee, good blends of grapefruit and liquorices in between. Mouth feel is fulfilling and richer than most ales. Very nice! Hoppiness is another real deal here - complex and fragrant fruity aromas, strong, expressive, quite refreshing but not overbearing in bitterness, and surprisingly low in astringency for a short finish; Fairly dry after taste, very pleasant to mouth.
Comments: A very nice ale, with lots of emphasis being placed on sophisticated and fragrant aromas, rich and tasty ale body (thanks to re-pitching), and expressive yet low key bitterness. Taste-wise, itís rather straight forward and lacks varieties, and its astringency should really be boosted up more to complement its already rich taste. Very enjoyable, but not quite mind-blowing. Still, recommendable.
