UPDATED: APR 15, 2004 Deep dark orange colour and a nice frothy head leaves me licking my lips in anticipation. On tasting i am impressed by a rich bodied nicely malted brew that is smooth and flavoursome, a little fruity and nice bit of spice late on the palate with hoppy bite and smooth nuttiness thrown in also. Excellent.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2003 A deep amber colour with a good head squires effort is pretty decent. A strong intense hit of maltiness followed by slightly spicy finish. Good body, not to heavy, not to light. Good all-rounder. cheers

very nice looking beer. Drinks very nice and is relaxing on the palate. The malts have very nice flavor. This is a very good amber.

A beautiful beer, crafted with just the right balance of flavour, colour and texture. Not too heavy yet with enough body to enable it to be enjoyed slowly. A sensational beer.

Very nicely crafted beer, smooth drinking and I like the way it retains its head throughout, trapping the flavours. Jesus, I might just have to grab some tonight.

Lovely amber color, medium, rocky off-white head and good lacing. Light but sweet honey malt aroma with butterscotch and grassy hops. Smooth malt flavor, a bit of fruitiness and alfalfa hops. Medium body, carbonation is a bit assertive.

Great beer, nice amber colour, malty/caramel flavour. IF there is any drawback to this one, it is the fact that it is a bit sticky and can only be enjoyed in short bursts. Certainly not a guzzler.
