Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2010
Golden-amber. The aroma is mostly woody hops. Toasty, fairly mushroomy character. Hint of caramel. This is rather uneventful.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ Cask & Barrel. Bright coppery gold with stable white sparkler head. Hops in the aroma are stale and socky but earthy too. Soft palate. Similar flavors to aromas, bland, earthy, with some nice sweet malts here. Drinkable.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Aroma is biscut malts and hints of grassy hops, but already you can tell its under hopped. Taste is same as aroma, id go as far as to say its sweet.

leaparsons (8019) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2007

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2006
1/2 pint cask, Cloisters, Edinburgh. Deep golden with a reddish hue and an off-white inconsistent head. Little aroma except some sourish hoppy notes. Gentle flavours. Nice and malty with only a little bitterness. Neutral finish without being watery. Malts come through nicey.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2005
I was a bit wary of this as I’d heard bad things about Fowlers beers, but it was a new brewery for me so had to be done. In the event, I was pleasantly surprised. Amber/gold colour with plenty of hoppy goings on. A solid effort. Cask (gravity dispense), Cambridge Beer Festival, May 2005.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Sigmund (5009) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2005
Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, gravity dispense. Deep golden colour, slightly hazy. Malty pleasant aroma with notes of apricot and honey. Moderately malty flavour, moderate hops. Certainly no "IPA" by American standards, but a drinkable ale all the same.
