Clear amber, moderate white head. Weak retention. Aroma: pale malts, caramel, fruity esters, candy. Medium body. Flat carbo. Sweet malty taste. Caramel, candy. Esters. Light bitterness. Hoppy aftertaste. Nothing spectacular still decent.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper coloured. I found this tasted abit sick-like. Hard to describe - Iím not sure if its the yeast esters or combination or malt and hops but it had a unusual flavour to it. Other than that it showcases some nice caramel and sweet rounded malt flavours. Aroma mimics taste. The ABV certainly improves this beer, but its not very memorable and I found it quite cloying after abit. I thought the hop flavours were a bit underwhelming and could have done with a bit more to balance the beer out.

500ml bottle dark glass, nice amber colour, soft carbonation, a little sweet taste at first slowly fades to a sour/bitter one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml Bottle . Not a clear bottle thankfully . In a La Chouffe tulip. Reminds me of a boozy Polish lager in terms of raw no punches lack of elegance, but only with Ale esters and slightly less boost . Nose suggests jet fuel , malty butterscotch , straw , light hops , burnt plastic crap . Dull orange with a subdued white head . It drinks smooth upfront , only with spiky edges in the backdrop . Like nice caramel bready texture obscured by stale fuggle hops - no unity , but not something bad to drink ,

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50 cl bottle, served in large snifter. Pours clear dark copper with some off-white head. Very interesting mild aromas: toffee, cookies, caramel, some herbs. Taste starts sweetish, then develops a round mouthfeel, to end with no bitterness and hints of cherries. Nicer than the overall score might indicate.

500ml bottle. Strong but not particularly flavoursome. Kinda disappointing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber colour. Light sulphur notes in the aroma. The aroma and flavour both have lightly toasted malts and a little bit of citrusy orange peel.

caramel, roasty, amber, clear, minimal head, lightly bitter, thin feel, lively. For a well-known large brand, it exceeded my expectations. Defo will have again.
