Not a bad beer, but not an espacially good beer either. On par with your typical Leinie's or Sam. Aroma was decent, not real distinctive. Looked very nice, a dark red-brown-amber color (the best aspect of the beer was the appearance). The flavor was pretty boring, bordering on standard. A bit better than macros, but not much.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 I thought this was some pretty good shit. Dry taste, a little bitter. I can taste the barley.

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Dry, musty lagery aroma. Dry malty flavor, lightly bittered and woody. A little astringent. Long pecan-bitter finish. Very solid medium body. Clipart label, twistoff cap.

ElGaucho (2229) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Draught. Aroma is a bit off. First sips were not pleasant, but I had previously been having a Fosters, which is different enough to require a palate adjustment period. Light amber in color. No lace and small head. Some bitterness on the tongue but too much malty off-ness. With the exception of Finnegans, my experience with James Page's beers has been less than stellar.

Clear copper body. Aroma is toasty and peach. Taste is peach and earthy. Moderately sweet and medium bitter. Medium body.

Nuffield (3713) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2003
I've rather liked some of the James Page brews, but this didn't please. Nothing special in appearance--bright, light copper/orange color with a loosely formed and quickly dissipating head. The aroma was enchanting--caramel and effervescent apple. Then the flavor was a mess--some nuttiness and caramel, but also metallic, oddly bitter, and ugly sweet. Although a bit flat, the palate had a nice butter edge to it. Still, this beer couldn't make it past the fact that when it was in my mouth, my tastebuds were in revolt.

This was just labelled as James Page Amber - assuming its the same beer. Fizzy light amber with no head! Caramelly and briny aroma. Rich butterscotch flavor and light finish. Decent.

I'm not really a lager kind of guy, more porter and stout, but this one was okay. A little sweet, definite hops. Not too shabby.

No head, really. A touch spicy with noticeable hops. Jimmy Page? Of Zeppelin fame? Or is it just "James Page"? I dunno. OK and sorta sweet. Oddly, both malty and hoppy. Good!
