3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 3/7/13 - Pours dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of aged hops, caramel, sweet malts and syrup. Taste is musty, sweet and caramely with notes of malts and aged hops. Finish is sweet, malty and caramely. A bit messy and way past its prime.

light copper color, white head that dissipates quickly. Floral hop aroma. Hop and malt flavor, leaves a bitter hop taste in my mouth.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Its a good bittery type thing. Fuggles. Much unloved except for by a massive swathe of British brewers. CAMRA soul.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper, with white head. Settles quickly with thin rings of lacing. Aroma is hoppy, mildly resinous, with a pleasant, nutty malt background. Flavor is mildly hoppy up front, malty, nutty, toffee finish, with mild medicinal/menthol tones. Flavor is more complex and balanced than I remember. Moderate carbonation, medium body, and crisp texture. Fairly drinkable. Taste more interesting than I recall, a malty pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki) - shared by mjs - thanks!
Bold orange, brief tight off-white head. Pleasant sweet caramelly fruity hops, and a bit zesty, in the aroma. A bit dull and watery in the palate, some gentle carbonation crispens it up. Simple sweet caramelly barley, simple gentle detail-less hops - just sweet and fruity. Quite nondescript apart from the buttered bread finish. OK bitter tingle too. A bit boring, to be honest. Should not be in the "English"-anything style, this is just middle of the road "American".

Bottle poured a clear orange hue w/ large off-white head and great lacing. Medium aromas of floral hops and citrus. Initial flavor is a light sweet and a moderate bitter finish w/ medium duration. Tastes are orange peel, orange, grapefruit and lemon, bread, and a slightly resin hops finish. Light bodied, oily texture, and average carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Oluttupa Viisi Penniä, 20130523) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had citricness, pine and malts. Palate was quite light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grain, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A thin and hoppy beer.
