3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Chrisoís Fullers-Gales Tasting (thanks to Chris). It pours clear amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is wood, tinned fruit (pear, melon, nectarine), brown sugar and spice. The taste is spice, fruit cake, alcohol warmth, leather, residual sweetness of tinned fruit, with a dry finish. Much dryer in the mouth and spicier than previous vintages tasted. Full body, moderate carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Good.

Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Had this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Pours nice, hazy amber with a small, creamy, staying, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, light flowery. Lively and kinda spritzy mouthfeel with a fine dryness. Flavour is dry, lots of caramel, light herbal and earthy, flowery and dry hoppiness. Light yeasty and a soft toffee finish with good dryness. Good!
