3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This rating isnít the most accurate because I drank this beer at my friends house the other night. So iím not able to sit here and makes notes as I drink it. But I do remember it had a malty aroma, which reflected the taste aswell. And a good solid head on itís clear amber shoulders. A tasty beverage all around and one I would certainly buy again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, pours clear light to medium amber gold with a few bubbles, light malt fragrance, faint musky-off smell (odd for a pale ale), little sweet notes, faint sour on the nose, faint malt taste, watery on the tongue, little hop bite and faint sourness in the mouth,
I was expecting more from this, I have a feeling something bad happened to this beer on the trip over the water, this was dissapointing.

Canned. Clear amber, rich head. Rich hop aroma with flowers and hay. Sweet and light bodied. Some light cookie malt overpowered by the hops. Lightly resiny finish with medium bitterness.

12oz bottle. Nice head, nice copper/redish color. Way better on draft, but nice basic Pale Ale. Itís pasteurised when bottled, a dissapointment.A complete meld of hops + malt resulting in a great session beer. These can be pounded, not what I normally do. The ESB is their flagship, try it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2008 Medium white head. Chestnut brown body. Thinnish caramelly aroma with light sweetish roasty notes, kind of fruity and peppery. Light sweet-yet-bitter caramelly wooden taste. Perfect dryish/fruity balance with lovely wooden edge. Clean palate, mid body. Dry wooden aftertaste with peppery hop notes. An excellent bitter, impressively well made. (0.5l bottle. Rated twice.)

11.2 oz bottle. a nice transparent amber hue, with a large white head, disolving fast. strange aroma of malts and slight caramel, quite weak. flovour was a little watery but had a nice bitter finish that i liked. overall not quite as good as i thiught it would be, very drinkable though.
