Long Leg is a traditional, full flavoured, golden ale exclusively brewed using Fuggle hops, both in the copper and as a late addition to give a distinctive, late copper hop flavour. The name honours the tradition of hop picking on stilts in order to harvest the tall crop.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - SEP 19, 2006
undated 12 US oz. bottle pours an oragey-gold with a thick, slightly orange-tinted white head, that retains well and leaves good lace. nose presents a combination of spicy/earthy hop character mixed with some tofee-ish maltiness. some diacetyl in the profile. fairly clean malt start hits a good dose of hop flavor head-on, with the hop flavor pushing through, with nice notes of leather and tobacco, and solid closing bitterness. diacetyl suprisingly undistracting - partly because it is low-level, and partly because there are enough hops to cut it. all-in-all a fairly good drinking beer.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Spicy hop aroma with some fruity overtones. Clear golden amber body with a small head. First taste is rather hoppy! Hard to believe this is from England. The fruity hop aroma does not translate well into the taste as this beer is mostly hops and has a watery finish. Some maltiness as the beer warms up. Not a blockbuster beer by any means, and there is not one admirable trait. It is still drinkable though.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Golden/Amber color,small to nearly no white head.Malty,caramel aroma,maybe even a slight hint of citrus in there as well but itís kinda faint.Starts off pretty smooth and macroish then does a quick change to grapefruit a bit of pine and hops with a mild bitterness throughout the tasting.As the brew warms up a bit there is a slight caramel taste comes through as well as a bit of some up front sweetness,but turns slightly more bitter in the end.Not a bad brew at all decent enough to try again.

very light colored yellow, no visable head. very long and lingering, but light, hop finish. very refreshing. reminds me of a crsip German lager, except this is an English ale. Worth trying again.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Pours clear orange-gold with quickly disappearing head. This smells fresh and sweetly fruity with a delicate flowery hop aroma, very nice. The taste is surprisingly sweet--definitely diacetyl/butterscotch, which I donít mind so much although itís a bit strong. Hop presence is forward, obvious. This beer seems precariously balanced...a little too much of everything resulting in a beer that doesnít quite reach harmony, although itís certainly drinkable.

beastiefan2k (2906) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a yellowy shade of amber with barely any lacing. Aroma is present, an earthy, toasty, hop aroma. Taste is watery with a bittery hop flavor. Aroma is the best part, otherwise nothing worth drinking.

beerbill (3574) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Pours a brilliant clear fold with a moderate white head that lasted through the entire glass. Pleasant fruity aroma. A hint of malt in the flavor, but this one is about the hops, which adds a nice fruity flavor along with some bitterness. Very easy to drink and enjoyable to the end.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Bottle. Boy this one is hard to describe. A very complex beer. Aromas of hops and grapefruits. Flavors are very complex. There is malts, a hoppy bitterness, a definite hint of caramel as well as apples. So maybe caramelized apples would come close. The finish then is predominantly bitter. This is a good beer, but hard to put in a category.

Pale golden color - slightly hazy. Aroma is citrus/lemon. Flavor is moderately sweet with some hop notes throughout. Finish is a bit sour.
