Smells malty, like a good beer should. Muted amber colour with a weak tan head. I didnít think Fullers could disappoint me, and I was right. Sits miles above my session beer (Bass Ale), even though I found the palate a bit watery. That changed as I drank it...itís got all the complexity of an Iron Duke, but not as heavy...nice for the summer after a hard day.

Pours an amber color. Aroma is sweet malts and heavy butterscotch (no doubt diacytel). Aroma is reflected in the flavor, plus a few decent hops. In this instance, Iíd say that this beer would undoubtedly be better without the infection. A re-rate is definitely on the list of things to do.

Amber Coloring. Little Head. Very Smooth. Sweet and Bitter. A Little bit of Fruit. Maybe a bit Woody... Bit Complex..Not Very Balanced Overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a deepish amber with a small off white head that did not last or lace. Aroma of creamy caramel, herbaceous hops and very faint floral notes. Flavour was more developed with distinct tofee accompanied by roasty fruit. Palate seemed unsure of its direction. Some unbalanced bitterness and slightly overcarbonated. Nice fullness though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
HANDPUMP: Nice deep amber color, not much of a head. Warm, round buttery malt with some hops. Weak and thin overall. This is a standard of British pubs, but not terribly impressive. I donít see what all the excitement is about.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2004 Small head. Nice bronze color. I found this to be very mild with a slightly bitter end. Goes down fast and easy, quite possibly due to it's buttery mouthfeel. Quite refreshing. No complaints really at all. A very good British Ale.

Just seeing the bottle brings back memories. My local had this on cask for a pound 90. Wow. Good stuff. Easy drinking, light malty base gives this beer a wonderful balance. Not terribly bitter, but simply tasty. Even works well in the bottle unlike many esbs.
