3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty solid bitter style ale. The pour is amber bodied with a large foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with a mild hoppy aroma. Fuggles and East Kent Golding hop nose. The taste is sweet and malty with a light hoppy finish. Overall, a sweet and very drinkable beer, just not memorable.

355ml brown bottle. Different label, just called "Bramling Cross" now. Pours an orange brown colour, slight haze. Small creamy white cap with some very creamy lacing. Nose has nutty malt up front, also a hint of toffee. Flavour is of nutty malt, caramel, slightly earthy. Nice hop fade, light leafy aftertaste. Light body, mild carboantion, gentle mouthfeel. Decent session beer.

Had some time ago, but remember it tasting off. Definitely not my favourite of Paddock Wood’s offerings. Would not get again.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2011 ***on tap at sugarbowl***
Pretty much the same but fresher. Worms.
A not-quite clear light copper brew that poured out a thin cap with minimal carbonation. Aroma is on the mild side, but that is not to say that there is not an ample ammount to be found. Mainly malts (a touch caramelly) and some sweet orange-like citrusy hops - possible having a slight creamsicle smell. Taste is quite malty for a second then these tasty come in. They do not overpower, just blend it nicely. The hops are quite fruity and as the tasting moves along, are becoming more prominent. Light medium bodied. The hop hit is heavier than it should be but are quite tangy. Somewhat smooth feel. Finishes dry with a lingering hoppiness. Really drinkable. Another tasty concoction from Paddock.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Body looks hazy brown with a cooper tinge, cap was ok but quickly vanished only leaving a good sized skiff. Aroma has metallic hops that seem to turn into melon the longer you smell and lots of light creamy malt character seems to be a touch sweet but not over the top. Very bitter taste with a touch of crisp hops and tons upon tons of malt, and once again just like in the smell it has a bitter with slight melon finish. Clean taste with full bodied feel and a soft carbonation feel on the tung. Simple and tasty and easy to slam, highly enjoyable brew. Can the farmers in Saskatchewan even begin to appreciate this well crafted beer I mean it taste nothing like lucky lager.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from a bottle with a deep amber color with a small, thin, white head and medium carbonation. Aroma is very light and made up of some light bread maltiness with a little stronger grassy hops aroma at the end. Flavor starts off with a light sweet bread flavor and ends with a grassy bitterness. Beer leaves a great lacing on the side of the glass and, as with all of Paddock Woods beer I have had, has a dead on mouth feel for the beer style. Another winner by this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of CBA: Poured an hazy amber color ale with a nice big foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt with some dry hops. Taste was also dominated by some biscuit malt note with some nice English dry hops at the end. Body was above average with some nice carbonation. Very well done overall and something that I wouldn’t mind having as a regular session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ TimE’s House: Pours a hazy bronze brown color, a nice head and lacing. The nose is lightly vegetal, some light bright and woody hops along with a subtle malt essence. The flavor is piney with a decent yeast and malt body, thin disappointing finish. This beer seems adjustable to what you what, quaff it, chug it, but it’s certainly not one to be savored.
