2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber color and a creamy head. Smells of English hops and cream. Taste is watery-thick like spit. Molasses, coffee on palate. Aftertaste is not good. Ended up dumping this one.

Nitro Draught. Nitro head, medium amber colouration. The aroma is of sweet honeyish biscuity malt with a little fruity yeast and hops. biscuity honey malt in flavour, a little nuttyness with mild drying bitterness.
a little thin in body and flat, i'd love to try the cask conditioned version.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro Can. Pours with a huge white nitro head that sits on the beer like a marshmallow on water. Sweet malty roasty, with candied nut overtones. Body is creamy and heavy initially on the palate, but swallows light and thin. Flavor roasty malt, butterscotch, and lightly smoked almonds. Finishes with a very pleasant mellow bitterness that brings the beer to wonderful completion. Good English Pub Ale/ Bitter. Would Buy Again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very interesting pour. The gases settle much like a guiness and I'm left with a very froathy head. A beatiful amber color with an eggshell head. Very smooth, but not what I expected. Nice flavor but a horrible finish.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served on nitro: Poured copper with a tight lasting head. Nitro killed most aroma, just a bit of fruity hops. Nice sweet malty start with a mildly hoppy bitter finish. Bit of citrus there too? Bit thin on the mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber colored body with a small head. Very hoppy aroma with some malt and caramel tones. Flavor is mild malty and hoppy. Acrid dry finish. OK, but nothing more!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2004 Great beer! Copper color with a great dense, thick head. Lots of lacing. Mouthfeel is apple and cream. Surprisingly smooth. Very even, consistent malt flavor without being over bearing. Finishes like sweet cream.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle with a large off-white head that dissapated quickly. The dark ruby color was complemented by the remaining small head. Cherries and malt on the nose. Flavor has malt, apples, and a little bread and butter. This is a subtle brew that would make a good session.

Pretty good. Smooth, almost creamy. Pretty light color for an ale. I enjoyed it.
