Had this on tap and fell in love. Clear brownish color with slight fruity aroma. Very smooth with a wonderfully complex taste. I also tried this in a bottle, very good, but not as good as on tap. Try the bottle first, then the tap. You wonít be disappointed. Definitely worth getting and hiding it from the relatives.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Very clear bronze color with large head made up of ununiform sized bubbles. Aroma of English hops. Not much else comes through. Nice mild English hops. A bit sour malt but not much complexity. Even as it warms no real malt comes through. Decent bitter hop finish. Clean.

Draft. Mild hoppy and fruity aroma with a similar taste. Watery palate. A balnanced and enjoyable beer.

harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2005
Bottle. Caramel and yeast aroma, some earthy hop. Roast caramel flavour carries on through mouth. Finish is dry with some earty hops and touch of citrus. In fact the malts are more toasty than roasted. Happily sink a couple of these without thinking.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - OCT 6, 2005
Bottle. Smells malty, roasty, hoppy. POurs a clear copper, with a thin quickly disipating white head. Tastes of malts, roasted nuts, hops, and a little bit of metallic flavor. Bitter finish. Warming.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
The aroma is filled with caramel and toasted malt as well as some hops. The Appearance is a copper brown and it pours a decent head. The flavor is rich with plenty of hops as well as toffee and roasted malt. It is sweet but not to sweet. Finish is like toasted bread but it does not linger just a little bitterness. Palate is average but overall I like this one quite well.

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2005
Almost, but not quite, as good as the cask version, but this means it can be enjoyed all over the world! A splendid Englsih bitter, if you are lucky you can even have one on British Airways flights! Available both in cans and in bottles.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
Clear amber/copper with a nice white head that stays put and laces. Served cool but not cold. Nice aroma of malt and caramel. Flavor is smooth malt, caramel, bread, and whiskey. Nice hoppy bitter finish. Tasty and enjoyable. Decent English bitter. Better than most. Wish I had a six, I could drink a few more of these.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 A Mes rate: A strange dusty and hoppy nose but reasonably inviting. Colour is a wonderful clear tan/red, shame about the head, it died to nothing almost instantly. Plenty of hops in the flavour with some bread and caramel in there too. Plus a little hint of orange on my second attempt. Reasonable hoppy finish. Standard English stuff as far as I am concerned but worth a try.

On draft at KClingers: True amber with a nice solid white creamy head. Caramel malt with an ample bitter edge. British goodness.
