Massively foamy, especially for an English ale.Yeasty, bready and dry, medium citric bitterness, with some salt and nail polish remover, the nail polish thing tends to go as the beer opens up a bit, nice soft palate.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The orangey beer has a massive, foamy head and serious lacing. The nose is soft with caramel, over-ripe pears and coriander. On the palate the rich pear notes become slightly drier with hints of pine, light sugarcane and more coriander. The finish has a hint of raisin, brandy and cinnamon.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yeasty and slightly salty aroma. Bronze colour with fluffy white head. Lots of circulating sediment. Kind of a fruity, brandy type flavour. Heavy on the alcohol finish but that's ok here in winter.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2003 Jeezum Crow, thats a lot of foam. Dark orange, HUGE tan head. Clean grainy aroma. Still Waiting to taste... Nice weather here, low 80's, not a cloud in the sky - humidity will be going back up, so enjoy this while you can... Oh, finally, the head has subsided enough to taste Vinuous palate, then spicy, peppery flavors. A small but persistant alcohol flavor, and some plum and peppers in the finish.

A fairly good ale that I don't remember very well. It wasn't too remarkably good or bad.

Slowly poured from a bottle and the head took off like a volcano experiment gone awry. The entire glass was nealy all head. Nicely laced and thick. Bright vinegar, grass, straw nose which transcends to the tip of the tongue then transfigures to a subtle cabbage flavor in the middle morphing itself back into a bitter hops, vinegar taste in the end.

Bottled. Copper coloured with rich, firm head. Intense spicy aroma, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger plus fruit and berries. Sweet and boldly malty with punch of rhum and a salty bitter finish. Solid.
