This has a dark amber appearance, initial taste was ok, but after the first sip, got much better, nothing extraordinary but I am glad I tried it and would have this again

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2006 This is the first time that I have tried this beer and likely my last. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bronze color with a medium sized tan head that fades quickly. The aroma is sweet, lightly vegetal and has a light fruity hop undertone. The flavor is bitter and lightly nutty with a light fruity hop element. The finish is sour and nutty. Overall a nothing special bitter.

Bottle poured a copper amber with a fizzy white head and sticky lacing.
Aroma is light malt and hops with a easy drinking slightly bitter hoppy flavor.
Above average beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This tastes quite average to me. Malty aroma, clear amber color with a decent head and the flavor is typically ale. Quite fresh and good bitterness but too carbonated.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish color, small head, but some lacing. Very nice aroma; some fresh hops and something akin to canned peach.
Initially, flavor is full, with slightly toffeish malts, but peeters out to thin with mild hoppiness.
Quite ok as a session or possibly with some foods.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very attractive deep copper - very clear. Pours a pillowery, fat head. Broad malts on the nose, some sweetness. More malts in the mouth, slightly subdued, but shows good balance. Very broad finish. Some bitterness but a long way from aggressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark orange color with a thin white head. Mild aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Decent flavor of hops, caramel and malt, thereís a fruity thing going too. Itís buttery too, diacetyl maybe ? Light body, creamy and oily texture, soft carbonation. Not bad but itís kind of boring.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Bright copper colour. Aroma is earthy - diacetyl, wood, rotting peaches, caramel. Flavour is sweet - slightly earthy with caramel overtones and a hint of diacetyl. Little bit fruity. Slightly minerally. Sweetish, bland finish. The yeasty nuances youíll find in cask London Pride are not present here and the beer suffers for it.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is the true taste of British bitter. I guess Iím biased because I was born in London, but this is a great beer. The aroma isnít the best thing about it: wait for that rich taste like an old-fashioned Dundee cake with some walnut and malt and then the deeply satisfying bitterness. Perhaps a little too much fizziness in the botttled version.
