Hmm. Interesting flavor I couldn’t quite put my finger on. I liked this one, but only had time for a pint. Too many other beers at the bar to waste time drinking more of these.

Malty nose, good head. Flavour is malty up front but let down by one of those metalic twinges. Only slightly bitter finish, relatively thick though.

Almost nutty bitter taste to this beer. Very enjoyable, interesting color and head to it.

Bottle- malty aroma, copper coloured body, small head. Slightly fruity malty smooth body with a lite bitter finish. Not bad.

Thanks to dogbrick, I was able to recieve one of these ales. It is tasy stuff with a nice gold color. Light and smooth with a slight bitterness that I like.

Tasted this one in the bottle and on tap. Bottle contains it’s aroma much more, and is the pick for the drink (also heard it’s available in pop-nitro can). A deep copperish body with an aroma that is slightly woody with caramelised malt (just a hint of burnt malt). A fruity overtone hits after the initial flavours rounding this one out to be a surprising treat.

Nitro Can. I had this a few years ago and remembered it as rather watery, but tried again recently and found nicely full bodied and flavorful. Probably more of a problem with my palate and memory than the beer. Anyway, full flavored with a rich mellow hoppiness and it looks great in the glass. Good session beer.
