Deep copper, very slight haze, medium off-white head. Aroma is malty with some bready Munich-like toastiness, light caramel, low noble hop aroma, light fruity esters. Flavor is malty, toasty with a touch of sweetness, balancing bitterness, earthy yeast character. Very drinkable.

Glouglouburp (5934) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2011
In short: A strange but fun toasted English bitter on steroids with a slice of apple pie.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh less than two months after first rating. Bottle from douglass88, thanks a lot Doug
The look: Cloudy golden-bronze body topped by a small beige head leaving lots of lacings
In long: Highly unusual nose. Strong apple-ish presence and lots of English style leafy hops. The best way I can describe its aroma is: cider with lots of dry tree leafs. That’s really how it smelled. Intriguing but not really pleasant. In mouth there is still some apples but not in cider form as I got from the nose. Taste is red apple skin, forest floor, dry leafy hops, toasted bread, salad croutons, pie crust, residual sugars, dry herbs, more… With every sip I alternated between “this beer is kind of fun!” and “what the hell is this?”. I’m not to sure what score to give it. I liked that Red Head beer, I also like redhead girls, but in all honesty the only time I want the carpet to match the drapes is when I meet a bald girl.

AmEricanbrew (5575) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Clear copper color/ tan head. Spicy caramel, leafy hop aromas. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet spicy caramel flavors with leafy black tea twang to balance--not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Pours hazy deep copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma has earthy apple-y fruity esters as well as some cherry candy. The taste is pretty bold with apples and then moving into cherries and spicy hops. It ends with a touch of dryness that seems to be coming from a thin layer of roasted malt astringency.

Sledutah (4276) - Utah, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle shared at the SLC tasting, thanks to whoever brought it
Appearance: Slightly hazy reddish golden with a medium sized white head and nice sticky lacing left in the glass
Aroma: Toasted malts and fruit
Taste: Dark fruit, caramel, herbal and some light bitterness in the finish
Nice and refreshing.

douglas88 (5786) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 2, 2011
750 ml bottle thanks to Donovan. A strong beer, but really quite easygoing and Mike was right when he said it seemed to have a bit of a bitter (style not flavor) character. Pours a cloudy red-brown color with a medium tan head. A nice sweet tea nose, herbal notes, honey and toasted malts. The flavor is a sweet yeasty brew; lots of dry sweet (but not too sweet) malts, caramel, earl grey, light honey. Very much a authentic and easy to drink English-style ale. Interesting and two things come to mind: first, this beer scream out for a cask treatment, or at least give me this on tap!; and two: how nice would this be in some oak barrels!

I love this beer’s label. The beer comes in a capped 750 ml bottle. It is a deep amber color, and mine poured with a thin head. The aroma is mellow, but I was able to detect a fruitiness from the yeast and there is a pleasant soft malt character. There were tastes of grain, fruity hops, and some crystal malts. The beer finished with a restrained bitterness. This is a very enjoyable beer. Another great beer by Donovan.
