3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
As it states a copper beer with a nice creamy head but quite small. Some caramel and toffee flavours detected in what is a great tasting beer.

The filterless nature of this brew is probably one of the most interesting things about it. Smooth, clean, easy to drink with just a hint of bitterness. This is a good dinner beer to augment a nice steak, although, a very rich meal would probably bland out the taste of the beer.

I have never enjoyed ales of any flavor until now. All I remember of it was how smooth it was and how tall the head was. Gota try that Blue now.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A very complete beer. The beer is very cloudy, and the head is huge, and takes a while to go down. The flavor is very good, with a rich array of fruits. The beer was very clean, and left no bad aftertaste. I highly recommend this beer.

Bottle. Brown colour with a slim head. Fruity aroma. Fruity, nutty taste. I found this a bit lacking in body; moderate carbonation. Nowhere near as good as the Blue.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks very similar to the Blue. Smells slightly more malty with some fruit. Head dissapeared and was smaller to begin with. A little nutty, or hazel-nutty in the taste, some caramel, honey, sweet tastes. Very good. Silky is a good description of mouthfeel. Chimays are good, but sometimes the taste becomes a little TOO familiar by the end of the glass. Very good in smaller increments though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Hazy and murky mahogany colour with yeast floaties and a mid-sized foamy tanned head, slowly lacing. Sweet dark malts aroma with caramel, chocolate and faint hoppy and spicy notes. Sweetbitter flavour, medium to full bodied, lively carbonated mouthfeel. Light sweet initial toasted malty taste with caramel; dry and slightly bitter yeasty finish with a warming and well-integrated alcoholic note and a toffee-ish aftertaste. Quaffable brew, but there are better ones out there.

I was expecting a lot from this beer but was dissapointed.Althought it wasn’t a poor drink it just wasn’t as interesting as I thought it would be.Light brown appearance and a pleasant texture without the obvious alchohol impact you would expect from a beer of this strength. There was no complexity and nothing to say that this was a highly thought of Abbey beer.Still theres always the blue and the white left to try.
