light burnt amber color with a medium tan head. pleasant aroma of spiced caramel and a light wood note. well balance malt flavors with the lightest amount of wood and a decent bitterness, the floral spiciness of the hops are light but noticeable. well balanced and very easy drinking

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz Bomber, 9/18/07. Pours a crystal clear deep red color with nice rich foam that leaves great lacing and sticks around throughout the entire glass. Aroma is full of rich malts with a perfect balance of spicy hops. Flavor is a lot of malt, very good malt, very tasty malt, very malty malt. Mmmm, malty malt malt malt. Little bit of hoppiness in the finish, not a complete malt bomb but the malt flavor is just downright tasty. May have been a time/place thing, watching the sun set over the pacific while sitting in a hot tub would improve anyones perspective.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On the pour, dark and frothy with medium deminishing head. Dark ruby color. Smells hoppy and fresh. Taste is hops, medium bitterness, very good. Strength intensifies as it warms. This went really well with the pizza I was eating. This style is one of my favorites, something I really like drinking. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber in color with nice head. Has a weird sweet cotton candy like arome. Not sure what to make of the flavour. Drinking this right after a really hoppy beer which could be adding to my confusion. Decent. Cheers!

One of my favorites. Begins smooth, nice and hoppy. a very mild caramel like sweetness mid-way thru, end to slightly bitter and then clean finish. Great cold weather beer.

Nice and hoppy. The ay I prefer. haven’t tried that many English Plae Ales, but would like more after trying this one. Thanks to piscator for sharing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample via presario. Amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Nice malt forward aroma, some vanilla, very mild esters, and some wood. More hoppy flavors than expected, with some nice woody, grassy, and very mild citrus notes. Some light caramel flavors enter into the picture midway through, before some mellow woody bitterness finishes things off. Somehow, this is more of a British style pale ale for what it is not (a c-hop bomb), rather than what you’d normally expect a British style pale ale should be (lots of fruity esters, etc.). Pretty good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a deep amber color with a small tan head that quickly diminishes to nothing. Some light malty sweetness detected in the aroma followed by a quick but light bittering. Taste is again very light sweetness followed by a mild toasted flavor with light hops at the end. Pale Ales are not my favorite style, I prefer IPA’s but I particularly don’t care for English style Pale Ales. Nothing wrong with this beer really just sort of boring. Doesn’t really do it for me.
