3.93/5  rDev +18%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500 ml. bottle that pours a shady copper orange color with a huge rocky tan head that leaves nice lacing.The nose really has'nt much,a little fruity with some buttery caramel overtones.Taste is tangy,bitterness,and sweet hitting you in that order,the fruitness comes out at you right after and than the bitter kicks in again with some malt blending in.Medium with a satisfieing mouthfeel to this one.Quite a good ale,i must say,well worth a try,cause i'll surely have it again myself.

3.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Undated bottle at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head small (2 cm), fizzy, off white, quickly diminishing to 2 mm ring and scattered bubbles
Lacing none
Body light amber, clear
Flavor of light malt, slight hoppiness, and just a hint of diacetyl. No alcohol taste. Flavor very short-lived.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Very nice ale, have consumed many and would recommend it. The fizzy head and lack of lacing detract from the appearance. Still not a tasty as a Yorkshire dark ale.
