Ferm beer with a warm-brown color and a fluffy white head. It has a rich aroma of fine roasted malts with a hoppy accent. The taste is original and it has a smooth mouthfeel with hints of ripe fruits, touch of pepper, caramel and fine malts. It ends in a bitterness of roasted malts and hops.

Brewed in England....... 4th of July bash. Pours a copper color with zero head. Aroma of caramel, malts and candy. The taste is also of malts, caramel and a hint of fruit. The mouthfeel is mild, kind of thin with a bitter/sweet finish. Not bad, but not exciting either.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2006 [bottle] Pours a dark brown color- tastes pretty malty. Dark malts, some light fruits. Moderately sweet- full mouthfeel. Enjoyable, for sure. Nothing too exciting, however.

500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a translucent dark brown-red with nearly an inch of off-white head. Smells roasty with hints of English hops, but the aroma is not that apparent. Tastes roasty, malty, nutty with just a hint of herbal hops present toward the finish. Tastes are fairly subtle, but are all very pleasant. Smooth, medium mouth-feel with some carbonation but not too much. Very drinkable, this beer is. At 5$ per bottle, it’s a little pricier than something I’d drink on a daily basis. But it’s a smooth, easy-drinking, solid English beer that I may pick up from time to time.
