2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 Original Rating (6-4-5-2-13=3.0): Biscuity malt aroma. Creamy white head on brown body. Some grain bitterness with a toasty character. Very smooth almost oily mouthfeel. I could have sworn it was nitro. Can.
Rerate (6-5-4-2-9=2.6): Mild fruitiness pairs well with caramel and lightly grainy malt with some herbal hops apparent also in the subdued but pleasant aroma. Crystal clear mahogany brown body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, off white, nitro head that lasts throughout and coats the glass. Mild fruitiness to the light caramel malt flavour along with a mild bitterness that appears in the finish, but all in all there is not a lot of flavour. Light body with moderate carbonation and that creamy smooth nitro mouthfeel. Can’t help but feel this would be a better beer if bottle conditioned. Served relatively soon after being brought in from the cold Canadian winter. Half pint glass. Can (Gift, Jan-05).

Caramel in colour. Aroma has some sweetness and faint hops to it. Flavour had some sweetness to it but was rather weak. Finished a bit watery with a short bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very nice colour of dark copper with a very thick almost white head. Thick enough almost to stand a pretzel in. A slight caramel aroma complemented with grainy notes. the taste starts out less than bold and dissappears fast to its bitter end. Very smooth and a slight bit watery. Very easy drinking.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer poured more of a dark golden color with a hint of ruby to it. Nothing much to say except the head stayed along the edge of the glass all the way down.

On Tap: Hard Rock Cafe, London. Light amber colored with a thin head. Has no flavor and no aroma. Like bitter water. Okay, maybe a little hops and malt. Finish sour and bitter.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very mellow, malty ale with a smoth hops flavor. Nice deep golden color with a small white, quickly disappearing head. Has a nice mouthfeel but leaves your mouth disappointed. Tastes and smells light and has a weak finish. I had this on draught and was okay with it but I won't order this one again any time soon. Not what I want in an ale.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2003 Amber color, nice creamy head. Aroma is sweet, maybe with some licorice? Flavor is from cocoa, a little thin, but leaves beutiful traces on the glass. Some bitterness in the finish.

Draught version tasted: amber color, medium head, and average taste. One of the most commonly found bitters in English pubs.
