Bottle. Pale amber with a small white head. Aroma of kumquats, grapefruit, honey, earth, light spices. Sweet light caramel and honey, plenty of citrus, firm bitterness.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
50cl bottle from Morrisons. Golden amber with a loose cream head; caramel malt aroma; strong caramel taste with a malty body and a slightly oily texture; and even more caramel to finish. Rather sweet for my taste, but otherwise pretty good.

SheffieldSteel (115) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - SEP 25, 2012
Aroma biscuity and malty. Pours a small white head. Faded gold colour. Spicy hops and a toffee taste with pronounced bitterness. Abrupt finish. A decent strong bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Slightly murky light orange pour with a white head. Caramel sweetness on the nose. Palate is a little thin with low carbonation. Touch of earthy malts. Just okay.

I did not enjoy this brew a lot. Itís not a bad taste, but not my style. Seemed to have a sweet fruity taste instead of the spicy bitter taste that I prefer in an ale.

Poured into a snifter. 4.5 A: Deeply hazed orange brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average, but it leaves behind glass covering lacing. 4.5 S: This is where itís at when I dream of an English pale ale. Rich maltiness, earthy mineral vibe, and just the right amount of yeast. Touches of caramel, bready maltiness, and earthy hops. Quite a treat for the nose. 4.5 T: Taste is as solid as the nose. Lately Iíve had some English beers that have been mineral bombs. This, on the other hand, flirts with the mineral side of things, but doesnít let it take over. Bready and biscuity malts. Light mineral with a solid grainy earthiness. Light caramel and toffee. Grassy and earthy hop flavor. Solid, easy drinking. 5.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Super smooth with a wonderful creaminess. 4.5 D: Itís pretty damn hard for any sort of pale out to stand out, but this one does. Itís wonderful through and through.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pours a light caramel color with an orange hue. Aroma is of malt, light and airy. Taste starts mildly sweet, but ends in a bit of bitter aftertaste. The alcohol taste is evident, with fruity notes. A slight sweetness of molasses or caramel. Overall a surprisingly tasty beer that I would drink again. Thanks Blue Steele....
