Perpignan73 (39) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle chilled and poured at home. Clear amber with lasting, creamy white head; nose of malts, caramel, fruit, grass; zingy light bitterness on the toungue, giving way to fruits possibly orange with a sweetish caramel finish. Has a great balance bewteen caramel and punchy fruit flavours, which many red/amber ales fail to achieve. At the time of review only 5am Saint is a better representation of the style.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Floral hoppy aroma, slightly nuttily, mellow malty background. Taste is floral and slightly fruity hoppy, minimally doughy malty, a touch of gooseberry and red berries, unripe peach; dry hoppy finish, almost lively, but fine and gentle carbonation. Very nice..

Cybion (160) - Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours slightly hazy reddish amber with a small amount of soapy white head and some thin lacing. Lots of visible carb; small bubbles. Aroma is subdued but sweet and fruity with light caramel malts and a slight hoppy, citrus edge. Taste is moderate-to-strongly malty with lots of wholemeal bread, strong, lingering honey, orange, and dark fruits, again with a slight citrus hoppy edge. Sweet but not too sweet. Finish is unexpectedly long with honey and mild bitterness on the back and sides of the throat. Body is medium, texture is sticky but not too cloying, carbonation is medium. Solid, well-balanced, flavoursome stuff.
