Hazy honey amber brown with mm sized floaties. Large size, medium lasting large bubbled off-white head. Very nice malty and floral hops aroma with lighter yeast and spices (ginge?). Short lasting medium intensity fruity hoppy start followed by a decent malty yeasty middle and finish. Drier milder sweet aftertaste. I quite like this one.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2003 Not bad at all! As I suspected, my last bottle must have been dodgy. It's a very unusual combination of fruitiness with the English style caramel malts. Good.

Deep golden colour. Not much of an aroma, but the flavour is pleasantly hoppy without being bitter. A good flavourful session beer.

Maybe shouldve heeded mutantís warning about not pouring the sediment in: itís a disconcerting murky light brown colour like sandy seawater. smells uncannily like redskins lollies. reasonable malty body, with a thick English hop flavour. acidic, anty aftertaste. odd, but drinkable.

This is a great refreshing session beer. Great refreshing maltiness and a great bitter finish. Hints of fruit and citrus and biscuty palate.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2003 Very nice malty aroma, and a very good malty, citrus, fruity and biscuity middle, good hoppiness on the finish. OK.

Reddish amber appearance. Some yeast left in the bottle. Crystal malt flavour, rather clean, medium bodied, bitter finish. A tasty, drinkable ale, very much reminding of an American amber ale.

Aroma is floral perfume. Bronze body with huge head & some sediment. Taste is of some malt then stronly bitter and slightly spicy in the aftertaste. WARNING: Do not pour the sediment into the glass, totally spois it. But this is the best smelling non-belgian Iíve ever had. Not like an English pale ale really. A top effort.
