Smells a little skunky at first, but then it went away. Fairly clear amber with a small head. Perfect amount of sweetness to go with the bitterness, as advertised. Very smooth aftertaste that lingers for a while.

A very beatiful beer! A soft palate, very pleasant mouthfeel.
A bit weak flavour, unfortunately.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a medium head of small to large white bubbles with a good lacing. Its body is a beautiful amber brown color with carbonated bubbles rising up the side of the glass. I smelled an aroma of hops and citrus. It has a fizzy hoppy taste that starts off slightly bitter and finishes slightly bitter too. Not a bad brew but it could be better.

Too much body to be an outstanding Pale Ale and too sweet to be a Bitter. A good beer but not very well style-defined, in my opinion

Toffee/amber colored. A blend of band-aid in the flavor. Bitter aftertaste.

I was afraid of skunk so I tried the nitro-can rather than the clear bottle. Really gorgeous. Red, thin head with sheets of lace. Strong malt and surgical gauze aroma. Based almost entirely on sweet malt. Some hops in the finish. I need to try this without the nitro-can tastelessness.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2003 Can: Pours clear yellow edging on amber, small white head. Malty aroma with floral smell (hops) coming through. Not all that strong though. Nice taste, well balanced sweetness. Malty, with a bitter finish to it. Floral/grassy hop flavour too. Thin-medium body. Rerate 16/10 tap: Pretty much the same, yet a lot less aroma on tap. Slightly better apperance.

This has to be one of the worst beers that I have ever tried. It has a taste of chewed tobacco to me.
