Poured from a 12 oz. bottle....rich amber color with a slight head, no remarkable appearance. A good beer, but I was expecting a lot more from Fullerís considering how much I enjoyed 1845. All and all, okay, and I will drink again, depending on other choices available, but will not seek this one out.

Bottle. Amber colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma with some hints of hops. Malty fruity flavor. Going over in a long hoppy bitter finish.

Bottle. I originally drank this from a can in a small drinking glass on British Airways and was absolutely disappointed. With a proper pour from a bottle, my opinion went up, but not substantially. The aroma and the flavor were both pleasing, but there was very little action to the palate. I found it to be a largely flat beer despite its attractive head. Another reviewer described it a buttery. That seems to work as well as any adjective I could think up. But I donít often have a thirst for a buttery beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2006
bottle - pours amber with a pretty nice offwhite head that stayed pretty well. Light aroma of caramel malts and some toffee, as well as some floral hops. Flavor is grainy with caramel and honey sweetness as well before the somewhat bitter floral hop finish. Palate is medium bodied and somewhat buttery. Would make a very drinkable session ale.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2006 Bottle, 500ml. Average lasting head, Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Clear amber colour. Malty taste with a fruity, bitter finish. Light carbonation. Quite drinkable, but nothing special.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2006
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.

joergen (25813) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 2, 2006
Draught. Clear amber coloured with an off white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and butterscotsch. Flavour of malts, caramel and hops.

balesjas (41) - Huntington Woods, Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2006
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.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2006
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.
