This is a great tasting, strange kind of brew but I finally got to try it and will buy this for as long as I can find it. Pricey sure but it costs more to get a beer in a bar than this 25oz. Not for everybodyís taste but its great for the seasonal beer loving seekers. Malty and hoppy and all the flavor inbetween love the dry delicious bitter finish on this winner!

There are only a handful of British bottled beers worth a shit. This is one of them. Thereís a wretched, evil whore inside every bottle! Avoid if you havenít been saved!

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.

Paid $2.99 for a 500ml bottle. Nice burnt-orange color, very luscious small fluffy head. Great lacing. Nice sweet scent that I can't quite place. Wow... nice, creamy, smooth taste.... did I mention creamy? How about creamy? This is damn good. I have never seen this beer before, but if I see it again, I'm gonna buy it right away. Damn good beer!!! I wish I would have gotten more than just one. additional notes: I noticed that many people say to drink this at room temperature- what i found best was to let this beer chill about 20 minutes in the fridge, and then drinking- so slightly cooler than room temperature was my favorite, but not cold!

Named after the ten íwitchesí hanged in Pendle, England in 1612, this elixir just might cast a spell on you! The hops are noticeable and the sweet malt comes together well. Very nice aroma, too.

500mL bottle. pale orange color. thin head with big bubbles spaced apart from each other. Aroma of fruit, malt, and of old sweat socks. Flavor is of rich malt although the texture is very light. Dry finish, with a bit of hops. This is a very fun beer. A great find.

I liked this a lot! A nice brown and slightly bitter ale, that has a good body and wonderful taste. Nice and crisp!

Bottle. Pours a brilliant amber. Nice, frothy off-white head with good lacing. Bready aroma. Great mouthfeel, full and quenching. Piney, hoppy flavor with a nice bitter aftertaste. Very refreshing.

Very, very nice. Even though it is a strong ale, see Dragonhead Stout by Orkney. Very similar overall minus the aftertaste. Medium body with decent amount of roasted material and a little too much water from making this a perfectly rounded find. However, it is still excellent!
