Okay beer. Nothing really distinctive about it’s aroma or flavor. Some hops, some maltiness, but really not much of anything.

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".

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.

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.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2005 In a blind tasting, I think anyone could mistake this for an English ESB. Actually a very good ale that reminds me alot of Fullers and other English brews. Nice bittery malt flavor that intensifies as it warms. Overall a good ale that I will buy again.

600 beers with no end in sight. On draught in the terminal of the Orlando airport. One of the more entertaining names for a beer I have seen lately. Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is malty with a nice fruit bouquet. Buttery caramel malt flavor was nicely sweet over a medium body. Very light hops in the finish. Not too complex but solid.

Light amber color. Poor aroma. Pretty smooth, a residual sweetness and some caramel, but not enough malty nor hoppy.

rust color.Nice white frothy head. Lacing was tight. clear in the glass. Not much visible carbonation. in the nose, mild malt, cookie dough. not much else. Taste starts slighty sweet and acidic. Finished bitter. Average length. Palate was a little soft. Not bad.
