Had this in bottle. Quite a nice looking ale. Spicy nose, a little watery to start but hops dominate in the end. Not a bad beer but as with many other beers of this ilk, it could be better.

Pours cloudy and clears to a rich amber with white head. No discernable aroma. Flavor was non-existent and the mouth feel was weak and watery. Bad. Very bad.

Draught can pours a deep amber color with a creamy head. The aroma is of clover and hops. The flavor is sweet, nutty, and slightly bitter. The palate is good and rich. Overall, this is really good for the nitrocan ales.

Well, this is one beer that's over-rated. Not by heaps, it's an okay beer but some people have given it much more of a rave than it deserves. Thin bodied mildly flavoured canned english ale. It's not too bad but it is a long shot from a true cask poured pint. Lacks body, malt and hops.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 re-rate; malt and wild/natural honey on the nose, amber colouration with good lacework, natural/wild honey flavours dominating with good lingering bitterness and slightly fruity/floral hop flavours, served too cold, body and flavour got better as it warmed.
drank it from the tap and was very impressed. good amount of body and smooth mouthfeel, nice light bitterness and wonderfully complex fruity, estery flavours.

I think I'm a little biased toward these canned beers with the widget, but these beers are very nice to drink, nice amber color with a huge bubbly white head that laced around the glass, malty nose with a hint of nuts, very smooth & drinkable beer, lighter in body than say a Boddington's but still very drinkable & enjoyable

Not much foam on this amber beer, but it has a damn fine malty/nutty smell to it. Good flavor to it, smooth all around, with the delicate mouthfeel of a bitter, but not a stong enough one. I think it could use a little kick towards the bitter isle, but thats just me.
