from the Fête de la Bière 2005, Lausanne - slightly hazy amber coloured, little irregular foam, solid hoppy nose showing notes of honey, raisin and apple, the whole being supported by a strong aromatic hoppiness,; clean palate with a more than respectable bitterness, the finish end s dry with lingering notes of hops and honey

Bottle. Sweet light raisin and barley malt aroma. Dark amber color with large head. Lightly sweet raisin, toffee malt and lightly bitter grassy hops. Medium body. Raisin beer didn’t really sound like it was going to be very good but this surprised me - Very nice beer.

2.6
Fin (10542) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2008
Can’t remember where this one came from, if it was from Ian Harrisoni (thanks) but equally I may have got it from Morrissons at Aylesbury so in that case thanks to me Amber in colour with some bubbles around the rim. Some sweet fruits on the nose. Found this to be just a bit tiresom had plenty of sweetness but it tasted artificial bit sacchriney, not much bitterness, in fact not much at all really chucked the last third of it away as became bored of it.
