Not a big fan of yeast filled beers. Pours light copper. Nothing special. Bottle dated 2004..don’ t know if a brewed on date or drink by date. I hate that I bought a four pack of this stuff. Yeasty, slightly spicy flavor.

Bottle in an xmas gift pack. Aroma is yeasty and bready. Slight ripe fruit notes in the nose. Flavour is again, fruity, and yeasty. Pretty run of the mill if you ask me.

Hallelujah! I found a back-up of my broken PDA, with rating I’d thought I’d lost forever. :-) Aroma is bready, not much else. Flavor is light, alcohol presence is notable.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Best before 2004. Body is brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is tart with apples and white wine, bit of grapefruit, and saltiness to it also. Taste is fairly alcoholic for 8%, has a cider like quality to it with light caramel, yeast, and light hop forefront to it, light raspberry, and old chocolate taste shows up in the end.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a rather large head. A bit dusty with notes of yeast, fruits and hints of spices.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
750 mL bottle that had roughly an inch of yeast at the bottom of the bottle. Upon opening the bottle, large chunks of yeast danced throughout cariied by the carbonation. In the glass, it appeared a light amber with yeast that just would nor flocculate. Aroma is that of a lightly hopped pale ale that has been infected with brettanomyces. Soma light fruit and sweet malty flavors and aromas but the presence of brett does not make it that enjoyable. Only purchase if you are vitamin B deficient and need a huge dose of yeast to consume.

"Poured a cloudy golden color. Aroma was fruity and spicey. Flavor was light fruits and spices and hops in the finish, little thing on the mouthfeel, but not a bad beer"

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
Best before 1999. Dark orange/brown body with floaties and thin white head. Aroma was a musty old cork. Flavor was sweet, leathery, earthy malt. Palate was smooth and soft and void of any carbonation.
