UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 I very deep amber beer that borders on a reddish color. It has a nice head that lasts a long time. The aroma is very fruity. Its a great beer to drink, and is rather filling.

Ruby/amber with a small white head. Aroma is mostly malty with some spice and caramel. Medium body. Tingles the tongue. Mostly malty flavor with hop bitterness, spice, fruit and a hint of roast. A nice bitter finsih. An excellent beer.

light brown color,Small off white head that left a slight lace.Malty aroma with a light spice and mild fruit presence,along with a mild caramel showing up.Malty spicey taste with a fruit side and plenty of hops.The after taste comes off as a nice hop bitter with a light spice and malt,but much heavier on the hops.The after taste is spicy and hoppy with a nice malt side thrown in.This is a very nice brew much better then the other brews coming from clear glass have been.Worthy of a nice score.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2005 pours a deep amber, slighty ruby-tinted. light carbonation and a small head. malty, spicy/floral aroma. first is a nice hint of roasted barley malt, and there is a perfect subtlety to the hops presence. complex mouthfeel, with malt dominating but it results in a little bit of lingering bitterness. semi-sweet finish. this is definitely a beer i could drink all day!

OK Im becomeing a Fuller's fanatic..so this is next in line. Comes in the great chunky Fuller's brown bottle..as always a simple but great label. This is a wonderful beer to look at,dark chestnut brown , when first poured a large slightly off-white head..that shrinks but always leaves a nice lace covering. LOvelly fresh chocolaty roasted malts..I detect some pleasant alcohol too..its pretty nice..some yeast. An exeptional tasteing brew .. the malts appear first but are not too sweet..smooth and dark chocolaty..later theres a buttery buiscuity taste then some nice alcohol warmth in the throat, to go with the surfacing hops! Very comfortable in the mouth not over bearing. A very very drinkable ale..nice stuff. I have become a real fan of bottle conditioned beers and Fuller's does them best

Amber color, not much head. Aroma is sour, reminds me of dough. Bitter flavor, but also a little sweet in the finish.
