COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
May those long suffering AT HER MAJESTY’S PLEASURE be granted a sweet reprieve in these days of despairing heat. A fine English style with feudal offerings of vinous hops, coriander and orange peel, is sure to ease the commoner’s burden after a day of toll. And though the asperity of the queen knows no bounds, hold your hopes and glasses high and drink deep of this liquid rebellion!

Hazy amber beer with a tidy off white head. Palate is semi dry and crispy. Minerals and a trace of spice to start. A little orange and peach. Malt turns a little papery. Semi dry finish. Mild bitter linger. Messy and disjointed. A rare Pipeworks fail.

Bottle shared by DanielCoors. Poured hazy dark yellow color with a large frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus, spice and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a complex beer.

Sample (as Majestic) from batch #84 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. The beer pours a clear pale yellow-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, citrus and hops. The finish is semi-sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2013 650ml bottle. Murky pineapple juice color, quickly dissipating head.. Spicy but tropical smell. White grape, candy, mandarin orange. Delicious aroma. The flavor is okay. Sauvin hops dominate, the malt bill is rather buttery which heavily detracts from the beer. Definitely vinous and it doesn’t blend with the butter. The corriander is also quite noticeable. It loses the buttery characteristic as you go and stays a very nelson-y light drinking beer. Got a bottle as majestic. It is better. Like a sauviny dipa with no bitterness.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, hazy yellow-orange pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, hints of earth, sweet fruity hops with some orange, nice coriander, spice notes, mix of sweet red ripe fruit, slight tropical fruit but restrained. Taste is a mix of sweet white fruits, coriander, orange peel, touch of earth, biscuit, bread, lots of toffee, yeast, slight diacetyl that works super well, finishing fairly sweet. Nice slightly hoppy and tropical fruit forward english ale. Dig it.

22oz bottle, shared by danielcoor. Batch 126. Totally hazy golden orange color. Very big, bubbly, airy off-white head. Orange, light spice in the nose. Kind of caramelly malty in the flavor, light sweet. Light spice. Soft carbonation, bigger body, more dry finish. Overall, alright summer ale. Carbonation is a little bit soft, nose is better than the flavor, flavor is a little gutty and vegetal. I hoped for more. I think this bottle may have gone awry.

12/1/12. Bomber thanks to nulledge! Hazy orange pour with a nice off-white head. Big green hop aroma with fruitiness and doughiness. Big vinous flavor as well with more citrus and doughiness. Not bad!

Bottle and served in a no-nik pint glass: Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a good lacing and head. The aroma is not very English, winey, catty, citric and slightly spicy. Mostly biscuity malt with a touch of caramel and. The taste is more of the same, moderately pungent and juicy fruit. White wine and lemon zest along with some orange too. Lightly resiny, catty and spicy. The faint coriander is a nice touch. The mouth feel is lively and somewhat crisp. At no point do I feel this is anything close to an English Pale Ale except for the malting. I really wanted an English Pale Ale and got this. Not that it is a bad beer, just misleading. (oh I found no diacetyl which actually may have been welcomed to make it taste a little bit English... I am assuming English Ale Yeast was used)
