2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap at Monks Kettle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge, creamy and off-white head. Aroma is butterish and dark caramelish. Bitter, dry malty and light breadish malty. Bitter and dry butterish finish. Tapline is clearly not good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A hazy orange beer with a small disappearing beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of peach and hints of strawberries. The flavor is sweet and sour with notes of garlic. A weird beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottle brought back memories, since the cask version was one of the first real ales I ever tried, at the Waggon and Horses in Newmarket. The U.S. version is a clear deep golden color, small white head and solid lacing. Aroma is slightly sour citrus, straw, white bread. Taste is slightly more bitter and peppery than its British forebear, with a dry and lager-like finish.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 Draught
Light amber color. Poor aroma. Pretty smooth, a residual sweetness and some caramel, but not enough malty nor hoppy.

Bottle. An OK beer. Pours a murky gold-brown with a fast-fading, white head. Light malt aroma, some faint caramel. Flavor has moderate sweetness, some grass notes, mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Certainly drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber; aroma shows ringwood yeast, herbal hop, caramel. Straightforward English ale - a step up from Bass and Double Diamond but along the same lines.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly rich malty aroma. Amber color. Vanishing white head. Starts with spiced malt, followed by hop, then a bit of floral and malt. Medium mouthfeel. Some nutty character develops. Unusual for the English or the Americans. Unique. Nicely balanced finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Copper amber colour with forced head. Firstly, thank you to my local wine merchant for picking this up fo me, it was nice to make the comparison with the originals. The biggest difference is the amount of CO2 forced into the beer, much too lively for our tastes, this gives a tinny, lemonade flavour. There is a sweetish malt with caramel, but very little hop impact. Lighter bodied than the English version. Not to my taste.
