Pours ruby brown with a bubbly tan head. Nose is sweetned malt, some caramel, and light hops. Tongue is met with a sugary candied flavor mixed with light to moderate hop character. It's not a bad mix though and they rather compliment each other. More sweetness during the finish. Good, easy drinking beer.

Red, orange, and brown in color with a moderate beige head. Aroma was somewhat sweet and a tad floral and some caramel and brown sugar. Flavor started sweet then went bitter. Nuts, toffee. All in all, a very good drink.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2004 Nice brown/amber color with a quite lasting offwhite head. Has a great malty aroma with loads of toffee. ALso a little spicy. Flavor starts off malty with som toffee, but then it turns bitter and spicy again. A great beer that offers a lot

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet smelling, maybe candy sugar. Moderately thick, off white head. Copperish color. The flavor is on the sweet side, but is almost overwhelmed by the bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper with medium beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, strongly floral, earthy, nutty, toffee. Taste is light sweet, fairly bitter earthy, some caramel/toffee, light fruitiness. Finish is solidly bitter, with the floral joining the earthy as it warms. Medium body, with some carbonated acidity.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful red/brown colour with an off-white almost reddish head. Nice, malty, and sweet aroma. Decent, but unimpressive flavour with a bitter finish to balance the sweetness. Fairly high carbonation (and alcohol presence) for an English ale.
