4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Bottle says Outstanding Pale Ale. You know what? Its pretty good. Smooth and tasty this is a very good beer. Style is Bitter? Bottle says Pale Ale. Tastes like a Pale Ale. Looks like a Pale Ale. I think this is in the wrong category. Nice head out of bottle some lacing. This is good stuff underrated in my opinion. Deep Amber color. What can I say? I think its great. Not particularly bitter either. Try one you'll see what I mean.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with small, disappating white head. Bready malt aroma. Nice malt flavor without too much sweetness. A balanced hop finish with a lingering aftertaste. Very good flavor. A little weak in the mouthfeel, but overall a great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice example of the style. Very "bread-y" flavor, not much head. Milder flavor than I expected with malt flavor more evident than the hops, but over all a good session beer. I would drink again, although I've come to the conclusion that I prefer their ESB.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Clear amber with a small diminishing off white head. Aroma of light bread, honey, caramel, herbs and a hint of spice. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of bread, biscuits, and caramel with hints of herbs, citrus, and spice. Good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice, almost perfect appearance, but just a soft malty aroma and a timid almost pilsner like taste, just not that flavorful

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Nice amber colour, with a mild maltiness but i felt it did not match up to the draft version of it. Not enough mouthfeel. Note the bottle was left at room temperature for at least 4 months.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Excellent flavor with perfect balance between malt and hops. Earthy and sweet. however the watery mouthfeel and flatness take away much from the overall character. I enjoyed it much more on tap than in the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Belgian spicy-like aroma initially, tapers off quickly. Fruitiness, raisins and a slight mustiness follows. Pours a copper brown, nice thick creamy head. Light on the malt, sweet flavour. Refreshing finish with nice hop presence. Does what its supposed to do - a satisfying session ale. Drink up lads!
