500ml brown bottle 4.7%Vol. Poured a clear amber. White head with light carbonation.Some lacing. Nice caramel aroma with hops coming through at the end. Well balanced flavour-roasted barley and hops with bitter grapefruit finish. My regular brew in many London pubs.

Choos (597) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2004
Aroma is grassy and malty. Appearance is perfectly clear orange amber with a small head that leaves foamy lacing. Flavour is a bit corn syrupy with a decent amount of malt, a hint of orange and some nice hop. Flavour stays quite a while but gives way to distinct lasting bitterness. Quite thick.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
This ale is a dark amber colour with a coarse fizzy head. Slightly metallic scent over corn and sugar notes. Small amount of caramel in the nose. First sip was very nice with mild flavours of malt and a slight flowery taste. Lightly bitter finish and a smooth palate with lingering bitterness and caramel. Very good!

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Almost balanced malt and hops but a bit on the malty side. English, a bit musty, a bit earthy.

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber in appearance with a nice-looking small head. Heavy malt aroma. This stuff is fairly balanced though I found it to be a little on the malty side. Overall, a great pint!

DomiNate (123) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Kind of a golden amber pour. Thin soapy head. Kind of honey golden. Smells of caramel, spice and fruit. Little bitter taste. Strong caramel taste. Little sticky on the palate. Nice beer!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber red pour. Nice eggshell white head that dissapates quickly. The lacing is so so. Floral hops, a bit grassy. Some malts in the nose. Mostly caramel. Not much. The flavor is primarily composed of bitter hops and tangy malts. Some spices make themselves known. Smooth palate and rich body and finishes with a nice touch of hops; both bitter and floral.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2006 Bottle. Nice copper/red color, bright and fiery. Good white head, plenty of lacing. Smells of lightly sweet caramel and toffee, mildly burnt barley, and grassy, herbal hops, moderately spicy. Flavor is spicy, dry, not watery. Good caramel sweetness in moderation, just enough to balance, but the hops really add the flavor here, spicy, lightly fruity. Very drinkable. Medium body, light carbonation.

Bottle. Pours anber, burnt butter quick disipating head. Sweet lightly toasted malt aroma. Lightly bitter and herbacious. Soft berry notes and a touch of brewerís caramel. Good hop bitters and the malts are flavourful and even. Hop finish. Quality session ale.
