Nice head and the aroma has notes of malt and a hint of yeast. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, peat smoke and a low bitterness in the finish. I would like more harmony...

Pours beautiful deep brownish red with a generous tan head that lasts forever. Nose is cream, apple, pear, earth. The flavor is heavily malty, with more apple notes, bread, very little hops. Watery mouthfeel. OK I guess

Pours with a slight head, disappears rather quickly, has a very slight turf smoke aroma and tastes slightly acidic, red in colour and a short finish, can’t really see myself buying it again

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.

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.

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.
