COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jester has been a source of humor and a confidant of Royalty. Was he a fool, or was he wise enough to play one? Enjoy this Impish pale ale and ponder.

Bottle from Euston Tap. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are caramel, hops, fruits and malt. Sour finish. A little off.

Bottle. Creamy off-white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter slightly sour flavor. Average light bitter finish. Oily palate. Rubbish.

I appreciate the brewery trying to do unique things, but calling this a pale ale with the Belgian yeast that they are using is just wrong. Open air fermenting is cool, but if your beer is so radical, why not describe it better on the label.

nike (967) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Unusual for todayís APAís not to have a hoppy flavor, but this brew does that, Iím not sure why. Poured like a weak Hefe wheat beer. Had more of a summer fruity flavor. Medium body, overall not bad to ok range. I just question this being an APA.

brownyonder (266) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Cloudy in appearance. Fruity and yeasty aroma. Lemon, yeast, fruit and a sour flavour. Not what I expected from a US beer.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle. Slightly cloudy and yellow with lots of acidic ,sulphur like flavours Reminded me of a poorly bottled bottle conditioned ale. Which strangely enough is what it is. One to avoid.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a decent head, some of which hangs around until the halfway stage. The nose is definitely Belgian with a big yeasty thing going on - lemon sorbet and something grassy in particular. The taste has orange zest, orange cream and then a drying yoghurt finish. The palate has a medium to large body with a big creamy texture and a elegant creamy ending, Overall, I really like this, but itís not an American IPA. Itís a Belgian style.
