Bottled - pasteurised. Occasionally available in the cask.
Deep amber in color with a fruity aroma which brings a complex mix of malts and mainly English hops including Fuggles and Northdown. With a hint of barley wine, it is ideal to accompany food.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2003
Quite ambivalent about this one. Mild hoppy and maybe fruity aroma. An indistinct generic flavour that is like so many other bottled English ales. Also it is just a bit light in taste for a beer of this strength. On the positive side, The light flavour is pleasant and I could actually drink it all night.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2003
Clean crisp light hoppy nose. Redish hue with a minimal head. Initially malty taste that develops with perfume and elderflower tones. Bitter hoppy finish. A decent ale.

eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2003
another pale ale from daleside that's suspiciously similar - methinks they might have more labels than beers. as with the others, it's pretty tame flavourwise, but straight up and honest - salty, nutty, dry maltiness and slightly peppery, full but delicate hops. like it.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 1, 2003
Clear bottle: amber with a tinge of red. Aroma is of sweet malts, with some floral, citrusy hops. Flavour is bitter(ish)sweet, quite cloying sweet at the start, but the hops dry it out towards the end and add a touch of bitterness. Nothing spectacular, and not even that interesting. A bit medicinal and cloying at times.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2003
Medium amber clear under a smallish cream-yellow fading head. Medium woody hops with some medicinal character aroma. Nicely balanced smooth full body. Low carb. Sweetish woody bready caramel malt with nice touch of hoppy bitters flavours. Pretty good for a tourist beer.

rauchbier (3786) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2002
Bottled. Amber bronze, good condition with a rocky head. Good spicey peppery hop aromas. Lots of hop flavour in the mouth with a good balance of toffee malt and a soft lingering hoppy aftertaste. Surprisingly good, but hides its strength well.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2004 <i<Sampled cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Brownish amber. Fruity and hoppy. Sweet and richly malty with loads of grass and plums. Salty licorice and bitterness in the finish.
