rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Deep gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Low fruitiness in the nose with some trace grapefruit-citrus hop notes. Muted sweet grain and flowery hops in the mouth. Chalky hop bitterness in the finish. Nothing really wrong wih it, just lacking any real depth.

pivnizub (8805) - Bochum, PorķřŪ, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle (bought in Bath, UK): Light amber to copper coloured, thin, but lacing white head; fruity-malty nose with a tinge of caramel and distinctive "english" floral hoppiness; moderate malty and fruity (traces of citrus) and distinctly bitter flavour; fruity in the dry finish, again, plus a fine, lingering hoppiness. A fine refreshing brew, a fine balance of hop, fruit and nut. Wow, these Fuller brews are so moreish...............

thebeertourist (4793) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2006
Bottle. Amber with a rich, big slightly yellowish head. Aroma is caramel and citrus, but also some yeastiness and roasted aromas. Starts with balanced sweet caramel, with good citrus bitterness gradually taking over. Medium-bodied, rather soft texture. Not very complex, but very drinkable.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Pours a medium amber/brown color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine/caramel. Flavor has a nice roasty caramel taste, and the some citrusy hops to finish.

RichardGretton (4241) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2005
Bottled. Plain looking amber/brown beer with a well hopped aroma and a very dry, hopped flavour with a slight caramel feel. Overall a reasonable beer.

spnkyoumuch (24) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Iím an IPA and APA fan and the last time I had this at a restaurant from a bottle, I enjoyed it very much. Itís well balanced with bitter, sweet, and hops. It has a fresh palate even from the bottle. Quite drinkable.

Sregnar35 (971) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Why call a bitter an ipa? This isnít a bad drink, itís just not an IPA. Not very hoppy, but again not bad flavor.

jgentgesdo (667) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 14, 2005
Pours cloudy, tawny gold with medium off-white head that laces well. Nose is caramel with a hint of soapiness. The flavor is excellent, creamy malts with flavors of tres leches cake, sweet biscuit, candied dates, slightly stale bread. Ends with mild bitter flavor. Underrated beer.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Bottle. Tea coloured. Aroma is sweet, caramelised malt and not a lot else. Flavour is one dimensional with the typical Fullers house character, sweet malt and a little bit of sourness. Tastes boiled. In many ways it is similar to the cask version I Ďenjoyedí a few weeks ago, but is actually a little better. Not bad, not good either.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Extremely drinkable, if not remarkable brew. The English IPAís always surprise me by how mild they are (having been completely ruined by our American counterparts which blow me out of the water with ever higher and higher IBUís, much to my enjoyment) But this is certainly an enjoyable drink...malty sweetness, meaning caramel and toffee, nicely balanced at the end with a mere hint of hoppiness.
