3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Even though a little "thin", this beer could be drank by the pint all night. Very smooth without a weak taste, balanced, not an excess hops or malt.

Deep copper color. Sweet carmel malt up front with a slightly hop bitter finish. Not a bad brew, but not the best from Fullerís.

A cranberry, grape nose. Apple color with an actual light apple juice flavor. A pretty good bitter, with noticable hops.

Rerate: on-board BA 17 LHR-SIN Quite a nice beer to have available in economy class. I was always interested to rate a beer on board an aircraft to see what difference the lower air pressure would make to the aroma, palate and flavour. Well, the result is that maybe the head doesnít last as long and the aroma and flavour are maybe a touch fuller (ha!) than before. It certainly makes a pleasant change from the regular swill they usually provide on planes.
First Rated 5/11/2002 3.2 Rich clear orange brown colour with light beige head. Fragrant floral hops with stronger malt and caramel overtones. Smooth and big bodied with yeasty, bitter sweet flavour and softer slightly sweeter but satisfying finish.

Good copper colour, lightly carbonated mild caramel flavour with hints of honey, interesting combo of hops with a hoppy drish finish. Not a bad session beer

It pours a beautiful clear copper with a frothy head that laces down gently, whiffing a subtle spicy sweetness. Way in the background, I taste woody pumpkin pie with a hint of bitter. Mmm...very mild caramel goodness. This doesnít bite, it just wanders around your tongue for a while. This beer is a fairly mild pale ale that goes down easy, perhaps too easy.

Nice amber color. Lightly roasted malts give this beer a breadlike quality. Iíve heard people refer to this as "liquid bread" and that is pretty accurate. Bitterness is kept fairly low due to this beerís maltiness. Very easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fairly light malty-sweet aroma. Color is the very definition of íamberí---head a bit lighter than average, but with nice lacing. Flavors are all subtle and move and mix together around the palate. Malt is concurrently mildly roasty and sweet, while hops are mellow but not silent and add nicely to the well-rounded finish. Body is just right for this style...The real strength of this brew is the fine balance--all elements are ísimpaticoí---There is nothing spectacular about this offering--it is just a good all-round performer.
