4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance: deep orange golden colour, fairly long lasting white foamy cap – beautiful.
Aroma: malty, with hints of orange and mild spices (nutmeg, coriander), some alcohol.
Taste: quite malty, but very refreshing (almost “light”) due to the strong orange flavour, and a mild sweetness.
Body: quite sparkly, with heavy malt body.
Aftertaste: recurring orange taste, some malt, lightly acidic.
Drinkability: it is a very drinkable beer, but you can definitely tell you’ve had a 8.5% beer after one glass
Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle, best by date of December 1, 2018, poured into a glass. Clear dark Amber. Aroma is ripe oranges, medium body, some carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is rich ripe oranges and caramel malt. GhostS (367) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 12, 2017
Aroma e bogată, intensă, plăcută și ”dulce”; un mix foarte reușit de multă caramelă, flori, fructe (caise/piersici) caramelizate, dulceață de fructe concentrată cu puțin alcool; totul pare un desert exotic/oriental foarte dulce.
Gustul e cumva mai redus din intensitate și concentrație, cu aceleași flori, caramelă, fructe caramelizate și dulceață din aceste fructe, adăugînd ceva amăreală, totul ușor și fin diluat cu alcool și căldură plăcută de alcool.
E foarte bună, plăcută, bogată și interesantă, ideală pentru a fi servită ”singură”, lent și nimic altceva. kraddel (8116) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2017

50 cl bottle served in Fuller’s shaker at Mad Bishop and Bear, Paddington station concourse. Pours clean dark copper orange to ruby red, tan long-lasting head (quite unusual for an English ale). Aroma is intense: rip banana, red berries, clove, cinnamon. Mouth is powerful, wide, sweet’n’sour. Fast it goes down the throat, even though it lasts quite long afterwards. Nice, though somewhat cloying.

(500 ml bottle) Pours a clear deep ruby-mahogany beer, with fine steady carbonation, and a creamy off-white head. The aroma is malty, and full of fruit, with a delicate touch of English hops. Notes include: toffee, caramel, biscuit, spices, raisins, overripe plum, apricot kernel, elder flower, mineral water and oak. It tastes bittersweet, with a silky-smooth mouthfeel. On the palate, the beer develops vinous qualities, and is reminiscent of brandy. Considering the sheer quality of beer, and idiom in which it is brewed, this is a great example of English Strong Ale. It’s beautifully blended, and you simply wouldn’t think this is an 8.5% beer. Mister_Li (1376) - GERMANY - MAY 23, 2017

330ml Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel and stone fruit. Beer finishes sweet with caramel notes. Not overly bitter with slight alcohol warmth. Full bodied, medium to low carbonation. Overall the beer has nice flavours that would go well with a hearty meal. emincems (95) - - APR 26, 2017

complex barleywine, nice brew. Davros IX (354) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2017
I can understand why this has the word "pride" in the name as there are, to me, definite echoes of London Pride in this beer. A rich golden, hoppy and quite malty beer with a strong flavour of alcohol. It’s in no way sessionable and although it is nice to try I will not be revisiting.
