Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2004
A nice amber color with light carbonation and a rapidly dissipating whit head... I enjoyed this beer. The sweet, fruity aroma wasnít overpowering and didnít cover over the malty flavor. Highly drinkable.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Bottle: Pours clear light amber with light carbonation. Small white sudsy head, not very good retention. High malt nose with a mild aroma of sweetish toffee / butterscotch and very slightl floral hops presence. Smooth sweet flavour with a nice bitterness after it. Slightly hoppy aftertaste. Light-medium body, smooth enough though. Not what I would typically choose to drink, but a pretty good beer anyway.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 From a bottle at yeomanís Road Pub in Tampa. Thin head which recedes quickly. Smelled of old growth fruit orchard. Malty and slightly sweet taste in the front fading to bitter with a surprising amount of hop. Highly drinkable.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - AUG 12, 2004
(on bottle) Not that complex to me, just very fine everyday-ale. And again, Iīll recomend to all our danish beerdrinkers, when thay reach for those awfull "classic"-pilsners. A surpring hoppy sent, light,b ut still full mouthfeel and a very good finish. The finish both kills your thirst and make wanna have a sip more; exxelent

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Typically when I think of a pale ale, I think in the veins of Alpha King or burning river, not of the English variety. Even my first of the ígreatí English breweries pale, Sam Smithís, I was left with an unenjoyed taste. Perhaps it was the warmth. However, with this beer, I was left with the tastes of slightly overripe orchard fruits, backed up with nice, gentle aromatic hops and bittering hops and a meaty malt backbone. In all, I enjoyed this beer, much to my chagrin.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2004
Dep gold to light brown in colour, very clear, lightly carbonated with a thin head. Very subtle aroma, some burnt malt notes and a hint of hop. Mild body, good hop flavour, and mildly bitter. Nice easy drinking brew.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2004
Bottle: Poured a light brown colored beer with a medium head and standard retention. Aroma is quite malty and the same applies to the taste. Well balance bitterness at the end. This is another standard English ale in bottle which Iím starting to think taste all the same. Iím wondering if those beers should only be drink form a cask to truly appreciate them. Overall, this is not bad, nor good, just standard.
