3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber, minimal head, flat. Aroma has some alcohol, malts, caramel, clove. Full bodied in taste and palate, reasonable bitter, with grains, malts and almonds. Somewhat dry towards the finish.Very nice but a bit dominaiting alcohol.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was wholly unimpressed with this one. Huge sugars on the tongue and not much else anywhere else. Reminded me of most "doppio malto" available here. Sugary, not even malt sugar, overwhelms everything here. This was on tap. I suppose I should try again given the favorable ratings here.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is so well balanced, the sweetness of the malt, the gentle citrus acids of the hops, and the warming alcohol, all work together to produce this top quality brew. A very complex mouthful, with a long lasting finish...and it looks great too!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL lickbow bottle. Pours exactly like the picture which is comforting I guess. Smells of creamy chrystal malt and a faint whiff of British hops. Not booze. Flavour has more depth to it, with pale and chrystal malt backing up some semi-spicy hops. Alcoholic bite in the finish. Despite the strength and thicker body, it still has a creamy feel to it and goes down easily. I like how Fullerís can produce beers at very high alcoholic percentages which you still want to pound away because of how delicious they are. Gets waaaaay better as it warms. Claims to be í...reminiscent of sweet orange oilí. I wasnít aware oranges produced an oil, interesting. Thanks Fullerís!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep golden-orange colour, pours with little head. Alcohol and butterscotch aroma and a flavour to match. Overall this beer was not incredibly complex and was fairly uninteresting. There are better strong ales on which to spend your money.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Che meraviglia questa golden pride. Splendido ambrato con schiuma traboccante, aroma netto di malto e sentore luppolato, e in bocca spettacolosa, per armonia ed equilibrio...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Very nice amber orange colour, decent-sized dense head. Fruits and berries, caramel malts and a hint of alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is caramel-malty, with dark fruits, oranges, spices and a warm bitter finish. Balanced and very enjoyable.
