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.

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.

Beerathon (1286) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Oh, this is complex and good. Orangish/copper in color. Thin head with slight lacing. The toasted malts are smooth and sweet all over the tongue and mouth.

Bottle. Well some of it. Amber pour with tan head. Aroma is controlled by malt and spice tones. Flavor is malt driven, quite one dimensional, and has a bit if oxidation and off flavors. Not quite sure how long this sat.
