Light brown, almost clear body with frothy beige head. Nice aroma of English hops, lightly spiced, cashew nuts and muffins. Bitter, straightforward taste. Easily drinkable and enjoyable. Not overly complex though and definitely not a beast. Surely nice in its style. (50cl bottle, 4,00 EUR) hohops (997) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle. Looks very dark brown, ruby tinge, no head at all- ends up looking like a pint of coke. Aroma- malty, slight red wine, raisin, hop hints. Taste- full and malty, raisin hints, a little bit of roastiness, chocolatey finish. Really nice, unexpectedly so given the appearance. Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottled, from Pitfield’s in London. Rather exotic and complex aroma with some floral, spicy hops, pineapple, pear, dried apricot, various leafy herbs, toasty malt, anise, mint, tree bark and persimmon(?). Medium red-orange color, cloudy, with a lasting, fine, creamy off-white head. Flavor profile is hop oriented -- spicy, flowery and lightly citric, with moderate amounts of biscuity malt and hop bitterness and a fruity, tangy, nutty, dry finish. Body is medium, the palate finely effervescent. Interesting and unique. sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle. Clear and subdued ruby red with little to no head, just a fine layer of beige carbonation. Chocolate, raisin & berry and a hint of oak & alcohol on the nose. Quite nutty yet fruity flavours - berry and raisin - with some chocolate and alcohol and a roasty, slightly smokey finish. Lightly warming, medium body with a lasting dry nutty & roasted bitterness and a fruity aftertaste. pivnizub (10612) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle: Clear, chestnut-amber coloured, stable off-white foamy layer, robust sweetish-fruity (dried fruits) nose with a robust hoppy background; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; becomes drier in the fruity-hoppy finish. Nice and pleasant.....
