Bottle. Golden, amber with a small head. Aromas are toffee malts with sweet, light raisins. brown sugar with some wet, musty grass. Flavours are fruity with raisins. Weetabix malts with hints of citrus. Dry on the finish with a fairly spritzy palate.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Dark golden colored, medium sized yellow head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is sweet with dominating plums, some chocolate and mild vanilla also there. Medium bodied. Flavor has some cardboardy dryness with plums and some hops, weird flavor, still ok. Crispy carbonation. Chocolate in aftertaste.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2007
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at a really decent and very cheap food place in Liverpool. Nose is plum and raisin and a slight tinge of hops. Flavour is similar but very sweet, floral and synthetic. Not a fan of raisins full stop. Surprised I thought the beer was ok. Didnt finish it though...

beervis (243) - Taylors Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2007
aroma sweet, malty and fruity, like malt loaf. poured light copper with thin diminishing head. fruit flavours, flowery hops, rich and slightly sticky on the palate. finish fruity and slightly sour. enjoyable enough, and a little different.

bhensonb (14473) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at The Market Porter, London. Amber color with a good white head. Raisin aroma - light one though. Flavor is mild raisin/dark fruit, a little bitter to go with a little caramel. Seems well balanced. A wheat aspect comes and goes. Weird, but pleasurable. Amazing, considering. My wife spontaneously said its the best shes ever had. Doesnt finish very bitter at all. Recalls just a thought of the grape sodas of my childhood. The flavor, that is. This is not all that sweet (or dry).

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2011
[500ml bottle, Booths, Preston] Deep ruby red colour with decent white head. Unsurprisingly the prime aroma is raisin, and the prime flavour likewise. Theres a touch of prune juice in there as well. Cant really taste much hop mostly juicy red fruit from start to finish. Depends if you like raisins or not, which I actually do [01082007]

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2011
Medium offwhite head. Clear amber body. Fruity earthy raisiny aroma with perfumy notes. Dry-sweet plastic earthy mealy taste with wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry fruity earthy plastic aftertaste with mealy buttery notes. Not bad, but could do without the plastic. (0.1l from bottle at DBF11.)
