2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium brownish-red with an off white head. Aroma of iced tea and toffee. Slighly twangy flavor, somewhat biscuity, but not much depth to this one at all. Pretty pricey for a very average brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours Dark Amber with tan head. Smells of light malt and some roast. Flavor is a smokey roasted malt. Surprisingly light (I guess 4.3% isn’t supposed to be heavy) and thin. Easy to drink alot of.. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2007 Draft. Dark amber pour. Just a touch of a haze. Big tan head. Creamy and long lasting. Light malt and some sweet floral hops. Nutty malt flavor with some caramel. A bit of cherry/strawberry notes from the UK hops. Just a bit of biterness in the back. A very nicely balanced beer with good sweetness and hop flavor. Great example of the style.
