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.

Deep copper color and a wonderful aroma. The deep Malt flavor creates a robustly smooth flavor. This is a delicious beer and earns a yum yum rating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight, off-white head. little to no lacing. Aroma is bittersweet with faint citrus traces, some brown sugar. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some underlying Christmas spices, some brown sugar and a hint of citrus in the back end. Thick enough mouthfeel. An enjoyable diversion.

This one of my favorites. A unique Ale in style and taste. Hops are alive bit intrusive. Taste is malty but not sweet with earthy overtones.

Bottle from coldbrewky... He acquired from sir lazy. Pours a nice amber hue into my glass, no head what so ever. Nose of toasted malt and slight booze. Taste is all toasted malt slight flower hops.

Orange-maroon-amber brew. Despite a frisky body, the head is rather thin. An aroma characterized by toasted English crystal malts, nuances of toffee, and a rife with fruity hops. Caramelized malt body, candi sugar, treacly pricks, fruity and leafy hops all contribute to the flavor profile. WHile this has the profile of a strong ale and is medium in body, it never seems alcoholic or unbalanced. A solid brew all the way through.

SanfordBrewer (1499) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2011
translucent amber with a bubbly beige head, medium body with high carbonation.

aroma: sweet and funky - definite brett or pedio. good though.

taste: caramel and chocolate malts, brett/pedio funk. not super sour like a geuze, but funky like a saison.

dmac (5587) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2011
12 oz bottle thanks to Scott. Poured a reddish/orange with lots of rising carbonation and an average sized creamy light beige head with some nice lacing. Aroma of wet bread, metalic notes, distant nutts, light citrus and some melted toffee. Fuller bodied with lively carbonation and a long lingering finish. Flavor is much better than the aroma, notes of toffee, nutts, bread, crusts, some fruit skin and rind. Good beer.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Draft at Great Lost Bear. Complex, enticing aroma, malty, fruity and lightly spicy, with notes of dark fruits (plum, raisin), dark brown sugary sweetness, faint hints of chocolate and earth. Clear dark amber-brown color, head is uneven and very fine. Flavor profile is malty, gently sweet, fruity and mildly roasty, finish is bittersweet, with suggestions of nut, dried fruit, faint esters and hop spice. Moderately high level of carbonation on the palate, gently prickly and with a good heft to it, medium-full body. Quite tasty and well done. I’d certainly like to try more of this one day.
