Bought this UK ale during the search for LCD display with my girlfriend at Funan center, although the model of LCD that we want was out of stock, I came across this in the cold storage located at lower ground, think I saw the very same ale at Paragon’s Market Place, but now they are having a discount from S$9.85 to S$4.95 for this 500ml bottle over here, this is too good to be true, looked carefully at the bottle, ‘Best before: 31 AUG 08′, still have a month plus to go, well, what the hell I’m waiting for? Along with this, I also bought a Konig Ludwig, a Warsteiner and a Carlton Cold, but they are history now, cos my father finished’em without my notice, and what pissed me off the most is he told me that he mixed them up with the rest of Archipelago’s strait pale that my brother bought for him, how the !!!??? could this be ??? what the !!!???

Never mind, I will shop for more this month end, yeah… it’s pay day man…

Today is almost the same as any other days, work at Johor, but during the journey back, we made a stop over at the rest area along the highway and took our dinner in the KFC. Once reached home, can’t wait to take a bath and then parked my ass in front of the TV, felt thirsty in the middle, went to the fridge for some fruits, but I saw this surviving bottle lying next to my Harvey’s sherry and magarita’s mix, think I better finish it off before my father did and gave me some lame excuse, besides, who buy beers just to keep?

Opened the bottle, deep, dark chestnut brown colour, kind da reminds me of the sarsi soft drink due to the coarse bubble, let TV tried a bit, but she just took a sniff and told me that it smell like sarsi, can’t say that she is wrong, cos you will get this fresh (even though near expired date???), fruity, sweet caramel like note, it’s even sweeter when hitting your lips, then rich roasted malt flavour followed by roast coffee bean on the palate, the finish is burst with hops, full of depth and lengthy. By the way, it’s hoppy flavour is something I never tasted before, rounded, packed with strength that will knock you off the chair, did a check on the internet and found that it’s brewed using the “traditional Fuggle hop” , interesting… Overall, at 5.6% abv, it’s quite low in the alcohol punch, but surprisingly full-bodied (which everyone of them claims that they are, BUT not true most of the time) and full of dark roasted flavours. Hope there is still some more left at Funan. Recommend this to serious malt flavour fans, if you like Guinness but not it’s high ABV, you might wanna try this one.

Pardon for the poor picture quality, too lazy to use DSLR.

    I read from somewhere that this type of beer goes well with Chocolate, maybe the next time you drink this, try with a chocolate.

    By the way, I don’t have DSLR to take picture, all my picture is taken with an Ixus….haha
