3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a gorgeous amber/red color to it. Filtered crystal clear. Aroma smelled of sweet bread; struck a nice balance between sweet malt and bitter hops. Head was average and off-white, eventually dissipating. Flavor was moderately sweet and finished the same way. Medium bodied beer with a nice smooth texture. Great with pickled asparagus.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright amber with not much carbonation and a nutty, malty, apple aroma. Dominant flavor is of rich malt, but there is some crisp hops, honey and caramel also present. Aftertaste is slightly syrupy yet bitter, with a hint of chocolate. A very clean, nutty finish. A good balance of flavors make this enjoyable.

Sunset orange with a craggy off-white head. The nose is predominantly malt with some floral and peppery hops. Light malt body is quickly overrun by flavours of fresh ground pepper and bittering hops. Light and enjoyable with a dry, bitter finish.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2006 Bottled
Medium slightly tanned head. Beautiful clear amber colour. Aroma is brown sugar and toffee. Sweet malty taste with some caramel. Some bitterness with hops in the end. Very drinkable just needs a little bit more body to be very classy beer. (7/4/8/4/16 3.9)

Metallic aroma and taste. (6/3/6/3/12 3.1)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 Sure Iíll probably burn in hell for saying so, but with the exception of the mouthfeel I find the bottled version to be superior. Or at least to the limited pints of the cask version I had in London. Think that the carbonation allows more bitterness and other elements to come through. Release me Satan.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Nice amber color, small offwhite head. This is a beer I really like. Aroma is great, alittle fruity and with pleasant toffee. Flavor brings toffee as well, and the finish adds turns a little spicy. Very nice....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Bottle. Flavours are more distinct and complex (when compared with cask) with lots of earthy and caramel notes.
In no way unpleasant but unexciting and the worst of the Fullers standard beers to my mind.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice amber ale with small, but fluffy head. It goes away quickly.
Nice, slightly sweet summertime smell... very refreshing!
Bittersweet taste, slightly floral, but a bit of a copper (taste your fingers after counting change) aftertaste.
A bit thick and heavy to drink a lot of.
