Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Nice amber brown color,small white head that diminished quickly.Mild malty aroma with a nice hoppines to it.the flavor was pretty decent mild malt,slight sweetness to it,but mostly it was hoppy,nicely done to.the after taste was mildly bitter with the hops coming through very clearly,and some faint hints of sweetness.Very nice brew IMO and well worth having a few more of these on hand.

Frank (2862) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2003
Tidy appearance. Nice reddish brown. Diminishing, white, foamy head with just the tiniest bit of lace. Mild aroma with a hint of apples and toffee. Not much malt depth. A bit sweet and fruity. Slightly watery. Bitter finish is a bit unbalanced and metallic.

jgb9348 (4732) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Dark copper in colour with a orange tint. Nice microfoam head atop with very small bubbles. The aroma was pretty hoppy but with adequate malt. The taste was great, definately hoppy, definately malty, and most definately an english pale. The aftertaste was great, some sweeter tones came out as well. A great English style pale from a pretty good brewery, and if you can find it and like the style, definately try it! I tasted this on tap at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2003
english strong? if this is strong, i'm a fuckin' cape buffalo with lou ferrigno as a personal trainer, 'cause i whuped-ass on this dainty little beer. questionable categorization aside, the thump pours a deep vibrant orange-- the color of most traffic lights i race through. dusty burro light tan head is big and fluffy. peach pit aroma, a bit of cardboard, and grass not quite autumn dry. creamy across the palatte, elegantly so; lightly sour moderate bitterness is what stays with you, quickly overcoming a brief short bread cookie sweetness. if it's cheap, it oughta be a player among the early evening beers.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2003
Dark golden color, tan head with some large bubbles. Raisin, dough, spicy nose. Almost has a whiskey taste, toffee, caramel. Spice lingers at the finish. Tasted slightly stale.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Pours an inunspiring copper color with a white head. the aroma and flavor were surprisingly sweet..caramel or toffee, malty, caramel apples, pear. Nice.
Earlier Rating: 10/25/2002 Total Score: 2.9
Okay beer. Nothing really distinctive about it’s aroma or flavor. Some hops, some maltiness, but really not much of anything.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Very clear light copper body, head was short lasting, good lacing. Thinner bodied with lightly caramel malts. Hops were also thin and not long lasting. This lacks "oomph".

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - MAY 3, 2003
Fruity nose of apples with cinnamon. Orangy-amber color and frothy head. Substantial malt body with a nice hop finish. There is a slight chemical-like aftertaste that I didn't appreciate. Fizzy mouth feel and medium bodied.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2003 Big, lofty and lasting head above a clear amber. Mouthfeel was soft, light, maybe even a bit watery with a light carbonation. Malts had notes of caramel and toffee, though subdued. Lingering bitterness has a flowery aroma. Only slightly cloying.
