The label says "pale ale" but it looks and tastes nothing like one. It poured an orangey, reddish body with a thick off-white head. The taste was somewhat sweet. I didnít sense any bitterness that some of the other raters are noting. I wouldnít mind having another of these sometime.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Bottle at Andyís. Orange, clear, white head. Light, fruity, low hop aroma. Light crisp malty flavor with some carmel malts and some hop flavor and bitterness mixed in. Very nice and drinkable.

Smooth malts, nut-fruity flavor, with descent bitter finish. Also ends mildly dry but the other flavors go to soon.

Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Served from a 12 oz can aboard British Airways flight from Heathrow to Seattle. Nice chesnut brown beer with a lovelly ( even in a plastic glass) creamy off white head. Has a very chocolaty,malty and thouroughly pleasing aroma. The taste has very nice creamy ,milk chocolate tones then hints of nuts and pipe tobacco at the end. Small bitter aftertaste. Nice on the palate, not wonderful but easy on the tongue. This was a very drinkable ale even in the cans..wpould love to taste this on draught.

iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2005 A good beer for this style, malty, not too hoppy. One of the better bitters. Not bad at all. A new favorite

desurfer (1280) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours a nice amber with a small tan head, lots of bubbles clinging to the side of the glass. Aroma is lightly floral and hoppy, with a touch of honey as well. Flavor is creamy smooth and sweet, just a small bite of hops. Very drinkable.

I normally donít like ESBís, but the malty flavors of this made it worthwhile. It was a nice copper color with a good head. Tasted bitter but was masked well by roasted flavors. I enjoyed this one.

Having really enjoyed Fullerís ESB, I was looking forward to trying another from the same brewer. This one is a clear, coppery-amber with a head that vanishes rapidly. Much harder to pin down the aroma than with ESB Ė slightly ďfruit & nutsĒ. Disappointing on the palate Ė watery, almost flat. A somewhat bitter, metallic taste at the back of the mouth spoilt the flavour which was otherwise inoffensive but lacking in robustness. Overall not bad - but not a patch on the ESB.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2005
(500ml bottle) Pours a deep amber body and a creamy off-white head. The nose is mildly roasted malt. Not terribly bitter for an ESB, and I definitely prefer the draught, but this is a fairly solid beer. Caramel and toffee flavours expose themselves to the malt-willing, the hops join the ride but cover-up. I enjoy this for a change of pace and scenary but would not be able to make it a staple in my itinerary.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2005
Pours a copper colour with a tan shortlived head. Mild floral aromas,malt. bitter hops in the flavour as well as some malt, slightly sweet. Less than expected.
