Renaissance Tribute Barley Wine (2013 & Onwards)
On tap at Bierlokaal Uiver. Guess it's this entry, although ABV was stated at 11.8%. Dark ruby brown colour, no head. Aroma of Port wine, raisins, figs, dried fruits, some caramel, hint of roast, very vinous and syrupy. Flavour is thick, sweet, malty, raisins, oxidised wine, Port, Madeira, syrup, dried fruits, bitter finish. Full bodied, thick, flat. Good dessert beer.

Renaissance Voyager India Pale Ale
Bottled, 330ml from Honest Brew On-line Bottle Shop, Crystal Palace, London. Darkish gold to amber with white head. There is a fresh hoppy nose to this which transfers into the beer, crisp and sharp, there is a grapefruit citrus note and a grassy bitterness. Good depth of flavour. Really enjoyed this one.

Renaissance Enlightenment Series Boom!
330ml Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy light amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of pine, grass and a slight caramel note. A nice malt backbone does balance out the massive hop bomb. Beer finishes sweet with a lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Overall a really enjoyable big beer.

Cloudy appearance, suggesting a good beer. Aroma was surprisingly low and non-descript. Malty taste with plenty of punch. Good, but a touch underwhelming to be honest

Renaissance Stonecutter Scotch Ale
The scent of caramel, chocolate, and dark fruit are noticed as you take a drink. A mixture of nine different malts create the complexion of the flavorful body. An abv of 7% is nondescript to our senses. The balance between the two flavors of chocolate and caramel take ahold of you. You can’t taste one without getting the other at the same time. Juicy toffee accentuates the caramel feel. The taste of raisin is sensed and is more apparent in the slightly dry finish. Dates adds to the raisin flavor of the drink. A cherry tart bite grabs you right when you drink. Licorice assists the tart bite and compliments the chocolate and caramel body. An anise spice adds to the sweeter part of the take. A walnut flavor is comprehended from the nutty feel. The water quality is exceptional. The water presence creates a watered down feel to the brew, which is nice considering the weight of the many malts used. The water makes the beer refreshing and easy to drink. The 7% alcohol content will sneak up on you. Stonecutter is a Scotch Ale that is deceptively deep in flavor. The chocolate and caramel body is lovely. Raisins and dates sweeten the beer. Cherry, licorice, and anise combine to create a very unique bite I have not experienced. The watery body makes this beer incredibly easy to drink. Stonecutter has a lot to offer than you think. Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer. For more beer reviews, visit my blog “Drink For the Love of Beer.”

Renaissance Marlborough Pale Ale (MPA) (2013 & Onwards)
Renaissance MPA 8.5% A deep copper orange gold with a thick head and an aroma that is initially fruity but on first sip I felt this was either old or heat damaged. Very sweet and syrupy with a pine and fruit hops and hints of mint in the finish. Syrupy sweet and bitter. Stick with the dark beers from them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Renaissance Stonecutter Scotch Ale Served in my thistle glass this Yamaya cheapie was a deep reddish brown with a creamy beige head. It's blessed with a rich malty aroma featuring dried fruits, cocoa and a sharp biscuit. The taste has some smokey peat, biscuit and roasty chocolate. A bit sweet and all around another winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
