Fruity, but weak, aroma. Clear amber (not ruby). Pleasant creamy and fruity taste, with a full body. A pretty decent English ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like this stuff. Beautiful amber color and an attractive label on the bottle. Clean, crisp, slightly bitter with a flavorful dry finish. Medium-bodied mouthfeel, nice level of lively carbonation and I really like the hops in this stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel and a tinge vinous in the aroma while the appearance is medium amber and cloudy. The flavor is a mix of old ale and premium bitter, the vinous part of an old ale and general characteristics of a premium bitter. Rather different for a premium bitter, the vinous flavor is a bit out of place and the body was relatively thin, but overall it wasn’t that bad.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: clear dark amber with copper highlights. Aroma: sour fruit and musty grains. Taste: slightly sour and bitter, with hoppy fruit up front and some sweet malts. Finish: medium bitter tang of hops gives way to tart dryness and hidden undertone of sweet graham cracker. Notes: While the very end of the finish was a pleasant surprise, this was simply not my cup of tea, guv’nor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy Amber with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is dominated by sweet, bready malts. Flavor has a similar, sweet bready malt flavor, with a little citrus and a slightly hoppy, slightly bitter finish. This is a clean beer. Drink it at room temp... you miss most of the flavors when it’s chilled.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a cloudy red with some orange hue’s. It has a white head that reduces to a cap and some spotty lacing. It has a mild amount of carb and a medium body.
On the nose some strong grapefruit notes. As well a little dark fruit.
The flavor has some almost sour citrus notes more than likely grapefruit. It does feel a little thin sometimes. None of the elements are really over powering the other.
It finishes with a blend of sour and bitterness that leaves an odd aftertaste. This is a strange beer. Not sure what I could finish off with here. I guess it’s worth a try. The one positive thing is some of the proceeds go to charity. So if me drinking beer helps charity than I am all for it.
