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.

Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2002
Nice amber colour with a big foamy head. Good malty roasty aroma, but something chemically about it. I’m not a winter brew person.

Davhgbrew (925) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2002
Deep red appearance, little to no head retention, and a bitter hop aroma. Dry, hoppy initial sip and a smooth dry bitter finish. Almost like a red IPA, overall very unspectacular brew.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - APR 21, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2006 Re-rate 4/21/02: 2001-2002 edition, Thin creamy head, deep orange (or light ruby) color, smells and tastes like more than 7% with sweet malts and some smoke and oranges. Starts and ends lighty sweet. A good cool weather beer. Old rating: Somewhere between a scotch ale and a barleywine. I imagine that this will age well.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 12, 2002
Very nice caramel, tawny appearance. Lots of flavor. Not as good as the Pride of Milford, a little more bitterness. Very good sippin’ ale.

A bit malty for me. Good body, well brewed.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2002
Reminiscent of Sam Adams Boston Ale with a more malty palate. Slight citric and floral notes in the nose along with caramel malt. Slightly better body than the Sam Adams Boston Ale. Color of strong tea with little to no head. Decent, but not incredibly impressive.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2005 Nice copper hue; tightly packed head. Seems to start really sharp and strong, settles down the more you drink. Big malty flavor (mostly caramel). Rich and heavy mouthfeel. Finishes a little dry. Hint of sour pine. Rather malty-sweet and fruity.

Nah, not really my cup of tea.

omhper (19186) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2002
Ruby coloured with a nice reamy head. A clean, hop dominated very bitter ale.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2001
Kind of a syruppy, soft mouthfell that reminds me of a barley wine. Must have a high alcohol count. Strong hop finish.
