2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2004 surprised the hell out of me, i was expecting a revoltingly sweet and soapy "irish red" but got a very classy, hoppy lager. smells of honey and roasted nuts, and tastes similarly, with a bit of light coffeeishness, before big, dry flavours of fresh leafy, herbal hops. yummy. could do with a fuller/smoother texture, but flavourwise i like it a lot. rer8: very faint flavour actually, and faint aroma... common organic beer failing - no intensity or guts. faint caramel and toast on a watery body + peppery bitterness and a faint soapy licorice aftertaste. odd. i'm with ol_j and omhper now

2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear medium amber with a chunky off-white head that leaves generous lace. Now this is going to sound really odd, but the aroma was quite vegetal and brought to mind tinned tomatoes. Thinking that it was the glass, I poured it into a new clean glass. Still the tomatoes thing. Ugh. Anyway, the flavour was much more pleasant-- toasty caramel with an earthy hop finish. Very low bitterness. A decent enough amber, but that aroma was HONKING man!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Faintly hazy dark amber colour with smallish short lasting yellow head. Malt herbal hops and light corny malt aroma. Medium low carb body. Medium bitter with some chemical adjuncts. The rest is kinda forgettable. I'm with ompher on this one and can't see what youse other guys see in this one . . and did I get a hint of cabbage or onion or was it just the Thai takeaway burp.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and nuts. Fairly light in body - actually a little watery. Lightly sweet malts before a dry finish. Unspectacular. 300108

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Amber colour. Perfumy peach aroma. Sweet nose, short, faint maltiness followed by a dry, salty finish. Confusing...

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
30 Aug 2004 - Herbaceous celery sweet aroma. Clear red brown colour, low head that dissapates, good suds lacing. Nice starting sweetness, hoppy herbaceous taste that dies away to a bitter hop aftertaste. thinnish bitter cloying on the roof of the mouth.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
No smell, no head, no body. The beer looks and tastes thin and watery. A redeeming feature is the well-realised english-style carbonation, but if this is like an English Ale, it's not a very good one.
