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 Oliver’s 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, it’s 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.

Nice white medium head. Smells like orange cake and grapefruit with a sugary finish. Medium body, feels a little watery for a second but it really have some strong hoppy and fruity caramell taste to it. This is a beer for food. Give me some medium fried meat to this. Yummy stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Colore ambrato carico, piuttosto limpida, schiuma bianca, fine e non molto persistente. Aroma elegante di malto caramellato, terroso, floreale, leggero erbaceo. Al palato di nuovo molto elegante e bilanciata con un finale che invoglia la nuova bevuta....alcoolicità nasconsta alla perfezione. Ottima

50cl bottle. Pretty decent ale, nice sweet and biscuit-malty aroma. Body is quite thin, though, with sort of a dull finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden honey color with a nice head that fades to lacing. Aroma of sweet fruits, some malt sweetness with a bit of hops and spice in the background. Taste of some caramel sweetness with some fruit and bit of spice. Nice bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, smooth texture and well balanced. Enjoyable beer, very nice for the style.
