3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle (London Pub, Helsinki) (7-4-7-4-15=3.7)
Lovely fruity hoppy aroma, peach and mango in abundance, sweetish malts and light caramel backdrop too. Crisp carbonation - has BC’d quite well. Lovely malty palate, roast is gentle and a touch caramelly. Damn, those fruity hops are everywhere, not as citrussy as new world ones, but stickier fleshier ones. And the bitterness is lovely too, leaving a lovely tasty finish. Covers 6.4% brilliantly, I could session this.
Rerate of: 500ml bottle (Kings Arms, Oxford - as 400th Anniversary Ale specially for the pub)
Anna - where’s my rating?

Bottle, 6.4%. Nice aroma, sweet and spicy hops with a hint of sour rag. Almost clear copper colour. Big, stable white head. The flavour has some of the same characteristics as the aroma. Good bitterness. Caramel finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A malt aroma, and the hops aren’t that noticeable. Hazy apricot color, little head. Begins with llight malt, finishes with a bit of citrus and pine. Nearly chewy. Light carbonation. Really, really smooth feel. Finishes with a hint of citrus and toasty malt. Could drink this all day.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned, aged 3.3 yrs, 500 ml. The beer matures to a dark amber with lasting white head, a pleasant pop when opening the bottle. Smooth, strong beer with heavy yeast nose. Clear and warming with vanilla undertones and a port, sherry body. the hops have lost their edge, blending in to the body. But all is not perfect! What is this fishy, cod liver oil note i get left with? never expected that. Overall a very good beer though.
