COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in 500ml bottles.
"This succulent premium ale has a wonderful blend of hops that give spicy and citrus fruit flavours leading into a dried fruit and biscuit malt finish. Twice a gold medal winner at the British Bottlers’ Institute Awards. Rich and malty as well as fruity and spicy. Nutty amber malt and biscuit pale malt together with crystal malt giving toffee/caramel notes. Fuggles and Styrian hops brings masses of tropical fruit and fragrant spiciness. Robust bitterness is balanced with the full body and mouth feel provided by the malt and the satisfyingly complex hoppiness."
A Ridley’s beer, brewed at Greene King since late 2005.

rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2005
Bottled, from Sainsburys. Copper bronze, lasting white head and moderate condition. Solid earthy maltiness in the nose with hints of caramel and gentle oakiness, initial sweet woody fruitiness in the mouth with some smokiness and full bodied caramel malt flavours balanced by a gentle peppery hop note. Finish is long and quite dry with hints of woodsmoke and caramel. All round a pretty decent beer, I hope Greene King don’t ruin it.

harrisoni (19549) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2005
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Ruby ale. Beige head. Good malts/fruit/hop richness. Raisins and lots of toffee/coffee in the mouth made slightly sweet by a taste of demerara sugar. Excellent beer.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled. A reddy brown coloured beer with very little tan coloured head. The aroma is very malty with biscuit notes aplenty. The taste is also very malty with some berry fruit flavours and toffee also. A bit heavy and certainly tasting far fuller than one would expect froma beer of this kind although the alcohol is well balanced. Shame about the Greene King connection.

drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 10, 2005
pours with a big foamy head, very slight lace, nice clear medium dark amber with a hint of brown. Head lasts a while. Great fresh beery caramely, malty, slightly hoppy nose. Nice mouth filling body, very quaffable. Nice pleasant finish. Balanced with the fuggles just balancing the malt. Very good beer. Wish we could get it around here. got this bottle (with no bbe code filled in the space for it) in beer of the month club.

Pretty good bottled beer, brimming with rich, christmas pudding flavours and aroma. A darkly intense experience.

Bottle: Pours an amber colour into the glass. Very thick creamy long lasting head. Has a sweet malty and fruity aroma. The taste is sweet and malty, some oaky feeling too. Has a little warming and bitter aftertaste. This is a nice beer.

Aroma is caramel, vanilla, oak, spices. Body is brown with a nice light cream colored head. Taste is slightly smokey, with caramel, and oak. Pretty good beer, would be nice as a session if you had enough of it.
