The twist off cap bomber pours out deep copper with some haze and nice tan head. The aroma seems like spicy hops mixing with brown sugar, crystal malts and spiced red apple wedges. Hey, lots more flavor than I was expecting and virtually none of the classic Shipyard diacetyl. I get a bowl full of spiced ripe red apple wedges along with spice and earthy hops.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Bottle. Orange/brown amber with a big whitish head. Fruit malt aroma. Caramel malt flavoe with some hop fruitiness. Low bitterness. It’s a pretty good rendition of a Brittish style strong bitter without going to thick.

DuffMan (6793) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2007
Clear amber with an off-white bubbly head. Very nice aroma of bread, toffee, and pear. Sweet toffee flavour with a fruity kiss and a perfectly balanced bitter finish. Excellent!

motelpogo (6700) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 6, 2004
competent english style ale. some pleasant hardness and light saltiness give a little class to what is otherwise a straightforward, lightly nutty, slightly floral ale

marcus (6537) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 18, 2008
This golden ale poured with a bubbly off-white head that dissipated right away. The aroma is sour caramel. The flavor starts off malty sweet, but quickly turns to a bitter finish - a bit thin, but refreshing.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Cask sample at the Gingerman. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Smells of dry malt, some spice, peppery. Tastes dry and malty with some earthy hop flavors emerging.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Amber in color, fairly clear, moderately sized head, foamy, off-white, spotty lacing, minor carbonation.   Pale musty malt aroma, a little dank, some funkified hop notes.   Smells like its been hanging out in a room full of hippies.   Slight biscuity notes on the tongue, minor sweetness, a touch of cereal.   Not bad, certainly better than its smell.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Tastes a little bigger than your standard Bitter or ESB.   Comes across as a soft or pale English Strong Ale.   Cerealy finish, a little pale fruit skin.   Not bad, and certainly better than I expected.
