2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear amber color with a very light head. A little caramel and a touch of nuttiness in the aroma. A nutty flavor with some caramel malts. The palate was a little too thin for me.

Like all of James Squire beers, it's far far better out of the tap than out of the bottle. Nutty, Citrus, Grassy characters, You can certainly taste the Alcohol in it, but for this beers it's quite refreshing.
A great session beer.

Another cheaply pleasant surprise in the form of an amber ale. It pours a deep amber, reddish color with medium carbonation and a fairly pearl white head..medium in nature and long lasting. The aroma was definitely hoppy, some malt, and sweetness, and a hint of fruit. The flavor is definitely hoppy, but you know those caramel malts are very entrancing...like sweet apple pie. A tiny bit of citrusy counter in there just to keep the taste buds alive and well. Nice tongue coating maltiness...mildly dry finish...very pleasant and can be a session beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 Pours deep amber with a beigey almost brown head. Little to no carbonation, rather clear looking liquid considering the colour. Fruity aroma. Very sweet, with a hint of hop bitterness. Hints of molasses and caramel. Almost too sweet for my liking. IMO it needs more hops to balance it out. Smooth though thin mouthfeel. Re-rate draught 2/4: Much more balanced this time. Good lacing too. Still a tad thin. Nice hop flavour.

Used to like this a lot more. It's a litle watery and bland. Nice deep copper color. Nothing special

A very palate pleasing ale, nice nutty taste, and thought I could taste a hint of cinnammon.
