Draught Ė Dark golden body, very small white head; Very nice hoppy nose Ė the British way; Bitter body with a very sharp carbonation; Bitterness is exploding in finish that is very hoppy dry, lots of aroma but 100% hopsack. Strange beer, quite unbalanced and quite extreme (particularly for a UK brew)

Light amber with a rather large foamy off-white head. THe aroma is floral hops and some wee bits of malt. The flavor is quite hoppy with little malt backing. THe palate is fizzy and thin. Quaffable and I do dif the hop profile just wish it had a bit more malt backbone to it. IMO, this should ne an IPA and not an ESB but I defer to the Brits that classified it as such.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Cloudy amber/orange color,small but long lived white head that left a decent lace behind.The aroma was citrus and piney with a juicy fruit gum sorta thing going on.Actually a very smooth brew and easy on the hops,flavor was fruity and citrusy with a nice sweet and light bitter taste.The bitterness gets a bit stronger as the brew warms but over all itís pretty mild and easy to drink,would do nicely on a hot day as a thirst quencher.

NERAX 2005 Golden in color with no head and minimal carbonation. Aroma and flavor of mild floral hops and slight fruit. Finishes slighlty dry.

Nice golden colour with small staying head. Aroma is very flowery from hops. The feel is quite creamy with good mouth feel. Slightly citric and a lot of flowery hops.

Hazy orange-golden with a white head. Odd cloying lemonade aroma, but the taste was pleasantly and lastingly bitter after a brief caramel sweetness. Enjoyable.

I am sorry that this brew is not appreciated for what it is and that is a English IPA. I found it very good for that style. It is not filled with hops from the NW and it doesnít taste like that. It has live yeast and itís a real ale and to be enjoyed as such!!!

This beer was largely average for me. Somewhat of an EIPA -- drinkable, sessionable, but memorable? Enjoyed on tap at the Dirty Truth.

Clear pale golden with a huge, rocky white head. Some floral hops, pear and stale tea in the nose. Flavor has notes of sweet pale malt, light caramel, lemon, apple, musty/earthy hops and some herbal qualities. Pretty sweet, moderately bitter. Ends with somewhat of a stale, tea-like taste. Medium body, smooth texture and subtle carbonation. Great lacing and head retention. Overall, this just didnít do it for me.

Bottle from Super Saver. Dark straw colored with 1-finger white head. Aromas of dry, feety hops, some tainty fruits, and some funky plummy notes. The taste is hoppy, very dry, with some fruit. The finish gets extremely dry hoppy, and I get very little malt from this. Not a favorite of mine.
