ElGaucho (2299) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle at Beer on the Pier, Chicago brought by Shelton Bros. Strong alcohol aroma with molasses. Cloudy dark amber color and slightly off-white head. Stronger and more flavorful than the Adnams Suffolk SSB. Pretty darn good, actually. I could see myself really enjoying a pint of this at an English pub. Good stuff.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2006
Nice. Pours out a deep amber color with a very small white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Flavor is slightly hoppy, then over taken by the malts. has a nice fruit finish. Over all a nice brew. Something I will have again.

Pours a nice reddish brown color. Aromas of dark fruits, hops, and a touch of wood. Flavor is smooth caramel malt, wood, and a nice hop.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2006
A red-brown colour with a white foam. A lot of foam from the bottle, be prepared after you have opened it! Some bread, medium sweetness. A litlle dry. Quite long finnish

thewolf (11491) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 8, 2006
Great red-bown colour with great (staying) brownish head. Aroma is of cherries and malts. It has a soft feel but not that much body. Tate is hoppy to begin with then changes to sweet and fruity. It ends up on a high note with nutty flavours and a new bitterness.

A malty, fruity aroma. Huge creamy off-white head. Excelent fully lasting head. Cloudy body, brown color. Heavy initial flavor. Good palate. I like this beer.

joergen (23509) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2006

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Honey-hazed, mahogany/brown with a creamy, khaki head that ends as ilsands and thick lace. Aroma profile similar to the <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/adnams-suffolk-s but not quite as sharp, enhanced by a caramel malt presence. Buttery mouth with mid-bodied fullness. A sweet edge of caramel complements the bitterness of English hopping. Savory to finish. Very good.
