1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 3/20
wow. the aroma is of methonol like in a tooth paste. The beer pours cloudy. The taste finishes clean. best used as an expensive mouth wash.
And, then I realized this is a british beer. comparing this to other exported english beer, maybe I should rate this beer better!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
16.09 ounce bottle. Pours a murky copper-brown color with a laarge beige head that lasts. Taste is of caramel, smoke, hops, alcohol and malt. Rather bitter. Similar aroma. All right, but I was expecting better. Kind of glad it was on sale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy dirty orange with an annoyingly large four fingers of off white puffy foam. After settling the aroma is a nice citrus lemon and fleshy fruits like apricots, yeasty fruitiness, a touch of coriander, ginger. Taste is lightly fruity malt, touches of spice, coriander, and citrus. A bit thin after the enticing aroma.

2008 Bottle. As a big fan of St. Augustine, I found myself let down by this beer..I just expected much more than it was. Aroma of yeast and light malts, but a flavor of somewhat watery hops. Palate was somewhat unbalanced...overall, not bad...but not great either.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Golden amber color with a monstrous beige/tan head. Strange fruity/spicey aromas. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is dominated by a flavor or spice. Bottle says coriander. Must have used a lot. Good though. Finish is lightly peppery. Bitter by across the pond standards. I’ll drink it when I can get it.

Spicey nose (ginger?) hazy apricot, small custard head. Pronounced ginger taste, with a mix of other spices too. Tongue is dancing from this refreshing brew. Great stuff. Thank You Torontoblue.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled a bottle from the CAMRA beer club. An amber-copper ale with a malty, fruity nose. Some hops and fruits with a slightly smokey and citrus aftertaste but these were very bland. Not horrible, just not enough to keep my taste buds interested.

Taste 8/8 Bottle (?DateL185-03) Looks: Cloudy iced tea. Clinging white head. Aroma: Lemon, caramel malt. Taste: Thin bodied. Lemon and yeast sour. Decent malt. Clean finish. Too much lemon for me(corriander plus yeast sour?).
