Outstanding. This is a wonderful example of the style. Very complex but balanced flavor invites you to keep sipping. This would make an excellent session ale.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Brown ale with a huge head. Very malty smell that led to a somewhat sweet taste. Hops are evident, though this is a really mellow beer. A great beer. Could be a good session beer.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2005
[bottle from asda] pours a deep red colour with an off-white head. The nose holds berry fruits-cherrys, lots of toffee malts. good body with a good kick of bittering hops in the finish.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2005
Pours a clear, dark copper with a medium beige head that doesn’t last. Toffee malts and a hint of fruit aroma, with sweet toffee dominating the palate and a nicely hopped bitter finish. I finally picked out a faint berry flavour hidden in there, but only after I was more than half finished (proper temperature maybe?). Overall really nice.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is rather sweet and fruity with some Kool-Aidish rasberry smell. Pours a very dark amber with small off-white head. Flavor is very sweet up front with a mostly sweet, but slightly tart, raspberry flavor and some toffee that comes into play just before the lightly floral bitter finish.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2005
(Bottled) Very hazy, darkish red color with a medium, tanned head. Roasty and wineous, toffeeish-malty aroma. Fruity, somewhat roasty, lightly wineous, pleasantly hoppy flavor with licorice and rosemary hints. Medium-bodied, sweetish, very smooth and sophisticated palate with low carbonation. A very nice and tasty, roasty and malty, easily drinkable ale.

Pors hazy brown with a pretty decent white head. Hoppy nose with hints of almond, raisin and yeast. Sweet, fruity flavour with notes of red berries and brown sugar. Chewy mouthfeel. Full bodied. Finish is acidic with a quite good bitterness.
