3.44/5 rDev +15.8%
33cl bottle: out of date by 3 months when poured into a 'Palm' badged tulip on 26 Apr 2013 (at home).
Misty rather than cloudy: reddy amber hue to the body, no head worthy of the name, just a weak collar and mini wisp in the middle of the glass. Not much sediment left the bottle, but it was still not a clear beer.
Yeasty and sweet aroma, mixed bunch of floral spices also in the nose.
The taste followed the smells: yeasty and sweet with fruity, floral undertones. Malty more than hoppy, sweet rather than dry, flavoursome, not bland: in short fairly interesting and better than I expected. I like the sweeter brews.

2.65/5 rDev -10.8%
A-Slightly hazy apple-cidery amber. Fizzes like a soda. No head.
S-A flabby malt flavor with faint red apple, bits of spice.
T-Variety of tastes that don't come together, and a pervading sourness throws off the other flavors. The sourness, although faint, is enough to clash with the malt and the spice. Finish simultaneously dry, spicy and sour.
M-Good carbonation, medium-bodied. Again, midpalate and finish don't come together.
D-Not bad, and goes fine with dinner, but lacks harmony.

2.83/5 rDev -4.7%
Pours light hazy amber with thin and dense off-white head, patchy dowsliding lacing. Aroma is spicy malt with citrus hops and low fruity esters.
Taste is moderate flowery hops balanced with soapy, sourish and spicy (cinnamon perhaps) malt - the complex mix is not tool pleasant. Mouthfeel is medium with average carbonation.
Overall, a strange beer with rather repugnant malty character, I would not call this beer 'Prestige'.
