Clover honey pour. Really subdued aroma is sweet with honey, butterscotch and jellied fruit. Slight detection of floral hop note as well, but really light. The body is medium and quite quaffable - showing more buttery, caramel malts and a slight hop bitterness.

Draught. Clear amber coloured with an off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and butterscotsch. Flavour of malts, caramel and hops.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 My earlier rating was higher, and I think this beer is only good on tap. I had it on tap at the Berkeley Front and liked it well enough, but I had a bottle of it last night and it wasnít really that good. Kind of a flat mineral taste to it with little body.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a bright white head. Light aroma of malt. Light bite at the first taste and then a good clean aftertaste of hops. Very refreshing, just what I was looking for tonight.

This was not completely unique. It tasted good, but not fantastic. Smooth, good appearance. Just not a stand out.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2006 From a can on British Airways -- this is far and away the best beer Iíve ever had on a plane!

Pours a lovely amber with a good-sized head; the aroma is balanced with warm caramel malts, orchard fruit, and grassy hops; the flavor follows, a nice strong hop bite intermingling with a surprising complexity of tastes.

Perhaps I was just thrilled to be drinking something other than Heinekin on the airplane, but I was definitely impressed. Addition: a re-rate in the luxury of my own home drops a beer a notch on flavor. Still pretty nice,though.

It had a caramel scent. Had a hoppy taste and clean after-taste. I would drink this again. Recommended.

Bottle-Pour a amber/brown color with a medium smal, creamy, soft tan head. The aroma was slight, with a little malt, al little caramel and some hops. The flavor was mostly caramel with the right amount of hops for me. Iím still not into the over the top hop beers. Great stuff, I had one on cask in London, but it was before my ratebeer days. A hole in my ratings that I will have to correct. World of Beer ?

50 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber clear colour with a nice white head. Nice light aroma of sweetness and fruit. Nice tasty flavour with notes of caramel, malt and a smooth hoppy finish. Very drinkable.
