3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, honey-red with a light, white foam head. Aroma holds some sugar, lightly ripened fruits. Medium sweet flavor with more semi-ripe fruits, berries, golden raisins, lightly toasted sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly sticky sweet finish, with lightly toasted sugars, faint bread, cherries, pears, plums, golden raisins. It’s a pretty straight-ahead English Strong Ale. Not too much alcohol, which is pretty alright. Decent depth. As a readily available beer, it’s pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light copper body, with quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma dominated by caramel and toffee maltiness, with slight English hoppy aroma bringing up the rear. Flavor is malty sweet, with decent amount of hoppiness -- still, sweetness is a bit much. Chewy body.

A malt aroma, and the hops aren’t that noticeable. Hazy apricot color, little head. Begins with llight malt, finishes with a bit of citrus and pine. Nearly chewy. Light carbonation. Really, really smooth feel. Finishes with a hint of citrus and toasty malt. Could drink this all day.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Irma, Industriens Hus, Cph.
Pours hazy golden amber with a fine, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of malts, some toffee and good flowery hops. Medium carbonation, fine, lightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderful. Lots of toffee, a bit of burnt caramel, good, dryish flowery bitterness. A touch of metal perhaps, but the beer is maybe just served a tad too cold. Long, lingering aftertaste with a heacy hops presence. This is really enjoyable.
