Bottle. Amber colour. Malty (buttery, toffee). Fruity (dark fruit, raisins). Spicy (floral & peppery hops). Sweet, malty, fruity, spicy. Drying fruity finish. Rather nasty, sickly taste. Didn’t like it. Not Good! (2008)

Old rating, bottle. This is just to sweet with to much of the raisins in it.

eduardovl (1721) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a orange to nutty color. Clear. Forms a small fizzy white head. Small retention and some lacings left S: Sweet and fruity in the nose. Mainly caramel malts with notes of raisins. Metallic. Notes of leather. Yeasts and some flowery hops in the end T: Follows the nose. Sweet upfront. Toffee, caramel, caramel malts, raisins, yeasts and flowery hops. Metallic too. Good hoppy bitterness M: Light watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Light bitter aftertaste O: Medium drinkability. Well, not bad since I’ve paid only 1 CHF (around 1 dollar) for the bottle [ BA Review @ 9/22/2012 ]

#21 - Obvious scents, obvious taste... A very fruity beer, ... Slightly over gassy. Not a fan, wouldn’t buy a again.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with a small white thin head. Lots of scent - obvious raisins, boiled plums, a lovely malt sweetness about it. Some banana. In the mouth, the raisin becomes a bit more clarified. Dried fruits and a light grape. Sweetness on the tongue, followed by a bitter finish and some more banana. Pleasant enough, and surprisingly deep. Finish could be a little longer.

SarkyNorthener (5202) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
Bottle bought whilst visiting friends in the Wirral. Amber beer with medium frothy head. Aroma of plums. The taste is sweet plums not much raisin. Quite dry in the aftertaste. An OK beer.

Sweet malty aroma, raisins come through, some caramel. Taste follows the nose. It’s actually quite pleasant and very drinkable albeit a bit boring and a little too sweet.
