COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hampshire has a huge toasted malt flavor balanced by assertive hoppiness. The finish is long and lingering with the malt and hop notes blending with alcohol warmth. Two row English malts (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt. Hood and East Kent Golding hops.

Bière achetée dans le Maine, dans une caisse mixte de dégustation. Couleur roux foncé qui tire vers le brun, mousse correcte, beige. 7% d’alcool, bien que ce ne soit pas inscrit sur la bouteille. Nez intéressant de sucre d’orge, de gomme baloune et de houblon. En bouche, on dénote d’abord une belle présence. Sucre bien balancé, avec une touche houblonnée bien calibrée elle aussi. Un tantinet liquoreuse, cette bière n’a rien à voir avec les bières légères américaines qu’on boit souvent aux États-Unis. Belle surprise. Le goût de sucre d’orge se mêle parfaitement aux notes d’alcool. Cela descend très bien. Décidément un bon petit produit qu’on se doit de verser dans un verre, d’ailleurs! Cheers!

Not much to smell, almost no aromas. Color is a medium red - brown. Darker than I expected but I complements the taste. Intial flavor is toasted biscuit. The more I drink the hops start making an appearance. A Malty start with a nice hoppy finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a clear dark amber. 1.5 finger head that sinks down to a nice ceiling. S - Toffee malt, slight spice, alcohol vapors, fruity-mostly grapes. T - Roasted toffee malt, nutty gingerbread spices, sharp citrus, apples, dates, and butterscotch. All this is surrounded with with quite a bit of grassy lemon hop bitterness. Finishes dry. M - Medium to full bodied and creamy. The rich fruity malt is masterfully balanced by the grassy hops. A very complex brew that is a joy to drink. Serving type: bottle 12-12-2010

Dark clear amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Smells as traditional as any English ale so well done there. Dark fruits, musty yeast, english hops in the nose. Flavor is mild and pleasant. Typical savory english yeast flavor that im not a huge fan of but it is done properly.

12 oz bottle. Pint shows the color dark amber leaning to a murky brown. Nose is English malts and Earthy hops. Average carbonation. Taste has caramel malt, nuts and leafy hops. East Kent hops give a hoppy bitterness that does well to balance the malt. Medium to heavy in body. A syrupy texture that wasn’t to cloying. I drank all six bottles at Christmas party and had no problem doing so. That says something for me.
