Reddish, copper colour. Malty aroma w/ hint of caramel & touch of hops. Smooth, medium body. Malty up front w/ caramel notes. Lingering bitter finish. Eminently quaffable.

Nuffield (4082) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2002
Pours with a decent head, settling into a thin head tyipcal of a bitter, but carbonation persists in palate for some time. Aroma is mild but with distinctive caramel. Flavor well balanced, not particularly bitter in finish. Better than any of the other Brakspears Iíve had. (bottle)

GregClow (3214) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2002
Very nice colour. Malty aroma with a slightly soapy edge. A little soapiness in the flavour as well, but itís quickly offset by hints of caramel and a moderate bitterness.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2003
Bottled. Copper bronze, low head and moderate condition. Good caramel and peppery hop aromas leading to a nicely balanced body with plenty of malt and hops to keep your attention and a hint of vinegar character. Finish is sweet with a long hop bitterness. Complex and tasty for such a low abv. A hard act to follow for the new brewers.

RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2005
Darkish brown beer with a lightly hopped aroma and a lightly malted but more hopped flavour. Overall a very reasonable beer.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2003
Fresh hoppy aroma reddish on colour with small creamy head. Very highly hopped taste wih a very bitter dry and long lasting finish. A good but perhaps little too bitter beer for my liking

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2011
Old rate. Bottle from original Brakspear brewery in Henley from a private order through the LCBO in 2004. Tasted in that year, rating pulled from old notebook I just recovered from storage. Pours a solid copper with smallish white head. Aroma is lush and British; biscuity malt, caramel sweetness. Taste is moderately bitter but satisfying. Excellent for the style and ABV.
