hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle from North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. Poured a beautiful clear copper color wtih a medium white head that left good lacing. Nose of caramel and malts, with hops apparent. Mouthfeel very rich and flavor is malts and it has a fruty and bittter finish. A very nice brew.

FirkinHopHead (26) - Munster, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2007
On tap at The Firkin & Fox, Glen Ellyn, IL. A nice session ale. An English Bitter, but not so hoppy by American standards. A good balance of caramelly malts and bittering hops. Light to medium body makes for easy drinking. A good choice when I’m in the mood for more than a few but still want a decent brew.

AgentGobshite (25) - peachland, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2007
Yet another good English, reminds me of ESB by the same company. My only problem with Fuller’s is the richness in their beers diminishes drinkability, whereas Bass or Pedigree can be swallowed again the morning after the hard night before

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a clear coppery color with a quarter inch head that falls quickly to a thin, spotty cap and ring that leaves behind a tattered bit of lace. Smell; bread dough, sweet malty caramel and a bit of hops are present as well. There’s also a little bit of a fruity undertone in there. Taste; slightly bitter and floral hops, bread dough and caramel malts with a bit of a sweet fruitiness in the finish. There’s a bit of a buttery quality that makes me knock this down a notch. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and pretty easy to drink.

MiP (15183) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2007
Bottle, 4.7%. Weak fruity, dusty and malty aroma. Clear copper colour, small white head. The flavour starts off caramelly and malty, and turns bitter rather quickly. The bitterness is uncompromising, but not rough.

TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - JAN 7, 2007
On tap.
Pours a crystal-clear auburn-amber. Creamy off-white head settles to a wisp and a ring, leaving webby lacing on the sides of the glass. Brit-hop aroma with some carmel malt sweetness in the nose. Flavor is a burst of crisp, almost pilsner-like hop bitterness up front. Fruity hop elements and a nce warming caramel malt show as it warms. Medium-thick palate with a long, hoppy aftertaste. Nice.

marcus (8903) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2007
This is an average-tasting british ale with no real remarkable attributes. There is a slightly carbonated mouthfeel and a slightly nutty undertone, making this brew just good enough to finish the glass.

vyvvy (5531) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 16.9 oz bottle - best by May 13, 2007. Pours light copper with an off-white head. The aroma is another diacetyl bomb from an English brewery - this happens far too often. There is also some light caramel and spice, but mostly the cheap butter / butterscotch aromas. Medium smooth body with light carbonation. The taste starts with lots of butteriness and some caramel malt. The finish has some spicy hops, but then reverts back to the poor butter taste. (5/3/5/2/11 - 2.6) P Rerate notes: Got a very fresh can and the traits are very close to what was initially noted, but the bad traits are more restrained. This has just let me know this beer overall is not for me.

Bouteille de 500 ml achetée à la LCBO (Barrie, ONT). Arôme: Odeur d’agrumes et de malt. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée translucide avec une faible densité de bulle.

Wobbler (46) - IRELAND - DEC 13, 2006
Nicely malty. Very bitter. Delicious. Every time I have this beer I enjoy it more than the last (I’m well aware that the law of diminishing returns wikll eventually set in, but meanwhile, cheers!). I think it’s my favourite bitter.
