Bought for fun rather than the hope of a great ale. Surprisingly light colour. Fruity malt aroma, okay bitterness. Worth a few quid just for the bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ahh, tempered over burning witches. I didnít have high expectations for a novelty beer but itís very quaffable overall. Golden orange pour with a soapy one finger head that retains and leaves slight lacing. Nose of sweet malt, bread, nuts, slight citrus. A decent British ESB that goes down easy but is pretty unremarkable. kind of watery.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of skunk, grass, yeast, some bread, touch of spice. Taste was a mix of grass, trash, bread, cracker, skunky notes finishing slightly bitter, prickly.

Mmmmmm malts hops caramel. Nice looker when poured into large hard rock snifter. Not disappointed on ex again by black sheep. CID if novelty I feared the worst but excellent. Fruity..., not citrus but dark fruits.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter. Label indicates this was brewed in Saratoga Springs NY.
Clear copper body topped by a decent head. Spots of lacing are left on the glass.
Aroma: caramel malts with English hops; the malts dominate.
Semi-dry finish with a medium body and lively, prickly carbonation.
O: more of an ESB than a English Pale Ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Color is Amber without much head to speak of. Aroma is generic hops, caramel malt, weak fruit hints.
The base is toasted grain and bready like malt. The body is medium leaning on thin. The flavor is toasted grain, light fruit, and again... Generic hop without any real distinction. Not terrible in anyway but not one aspect of this make it notable. Well, the label is pretty cool but... No extra points for that.
