2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer is malty and spicy, but with easily distinguished spirit taste. This is not good even for strong ale.

Pours deep golden without head and medium carbonation. Light flowery nose, slightly soapy. Light flavour with burnt caramel, biscuit and grass. Light short characterless finish. Drinkable but uninspiring.

Minimal head on pouring over a dark amber beer. Quite a dry hop flavour ao be warned if you don’t like the strength of flavour that brings. A slight tang of liquorice persists too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle No. 157222 bb31072015 (1yo, according to website bottling calculator), Maruhn probably. - seamy mahogani pour. Still reticent aroma of gently rum-doused raisin fruitcake, candied orange peel, sweet apricot and banana. Layered taste of rich UK malts, adding stewed pear, treacle, a good helping of butterscotch and maroni to candied citrus zest and nuts. Lovely tart touch complements Cascade’s zesty dryness to balance out the sweet dessert fruits. - A wonderful oldschool UK version of the "tripel" recipe, here actually corresponding to a triple fermentation process ("double drop system + bottle refermentation), that puts many a phenolic and higher-octane Belgian tripel to shame in terms of subtlety of flavour and drinkability.

500ml bottle from a big supermarket somewhere. Pours deep amber with modest ivory head. Aroma is caramel & brown sugar. Taste is smooth, rich and slightly boozy with smooth, subtle sweet flavours and a tangy fruitcake finish. Expected more.

Clear amber pour. Decent white head. Trying to figure out what the beer style is and failing. Not bitter. Stronger than an average English beer. Quite drinkable.

500ml bottle from Asda. Pours amber, light haze, thin white head. Aromas of marzipan, toffee, faint estery notes. Taste is sweet, with a mineral chalkiness. Marmalade. Sweet finish. Stronger, it would make a nice barley wine.
