3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellowish amber body with a good sized creamy white head that is still in my glass after finishing it. Gotta love the way it settles due to the nitro-widget. Very mild aroma, a combination of light hops, and a bit of yeast. Slightly hoppy flavor, and thats about it. Very creamy in my mouth. Nothing all that special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very malty aroma, a tad salty. Nice copper brown colour, white foamy head. Hops, roasty flavour. Lingering pine hop aftertaste, alcohol. Not a great aftertaste. Palate is thin. A fairly standard brit pub ale.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a really nice text-book amber. Big frothy head, white and lacey. Big time skunked, gone. It's too bad. Well I've had it before and it was quite nice. Will re-rate in the near future. Man that stunk!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured out of the 500mL can (not tried the bottle yet) this is a beautiful amber ale with an off-white head. Rich doesn't begin to describe this, but smooth, rich and creamy can be added. The taste is malty with a little sweetness from the hints of caramel and butter along with a hint of nutty follow-up. All in all well-balanced, the only short-coming is the finish, there's just a certain something missing but that still doesn't get in the way of this being a must-have.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy, fresh aroma. Okay. Red coloured, not much head. Taste is quite neutral, but quite well brewed. Easy to drink, hopbitter and malts. Fresh and bitter.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A great amber ale with a medium body, sweet malt and no hint of a dodgy aftertaste lingering.
I'll have half.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hopped copery beer with initially big head diminishing to no head to speak of. Smooth but fairly bland with a mild bitter aftertaste. Pleasant enough but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2004 Poor head retention, but a much darker colour than the illustration on this page. There was a prevalent hop flavour, and the alcohol was definitely tasteable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Pours nice amber with medium sized head that dimished quickly. Aroma is nutty and bready with some malt. Flavor reminds me of a typical amber or brown ale and otherwise fairly nondescript. Not bad, but not as good as many other draught choices wherever they have this one.
