very hoppy towards the end of the glass. nice head that faded very quickly to an awesome display of lacing. the aroma had a hint of pears? (unless my nose is falling apart on me) this was not the best beer out there, but i will try it again to see if i need to re-rate it.

Beautiful to look at, copper color. Very British while made in the U.S. Similar to Old Speckled Hen or New Castle with a bit more bitterness and spice.

I have seen many descriptions of this beer, but I believe it is sort of a pale ESB, and a good one at that. Ringwood fruitiness with a nice hop flavor make this a good quality ale.

The aroma had a subtle nuttiness. The body was a light brown with a medium creme-colored head. I thoroughly enjoyed the smoothness on my palate.

(22-ounce bottle) An American brewed version of an English recipe has produced unexpectedly good results; This is, in fact, a very delicious beer, very malty and fruity in the English tradition, quite sweet (but not cloying), and lightly bitter in the finish; The sweetness, while enjoyable and not cloying in the least, is perhaps a bit too sweet and out of balance with the rest of the beer, but I'm being picky here; Seems higher in alcohol that it actually is; Wonderful smoky finish really wraps up this beer nicely; Drink while chilled because as it warms up and the carbonation diminishes, the beer does become somewhat sugary; The long-lasting palate is full bodied, but not heavy, and is soft, smooth, buttery, and velvety, with light carbonation; The nose is very English, with fruity and lightly malty aromas; Copper in color with a very slight haziness; Good size tan head has average retention and leaves very little lacing since the head's bubbles that catch the glass evaporate almost immediately; I would not hesitate to buy this by the case, it's extremely enjoyable and definitely something I would recommend

Pours a wonderful amber orange with a strong tan head. The nose is amazing,smells like old wet forests,wine and fruit. Great blend of malt and fruitiness that drys out into a candy and hops finish. Very good body and lots of carbonation making for a excellent drinking experience.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Complex flavors, malt, fruit, sugar, and then a hoppy finish. Nice copper color with a big head. Not much of an aroma. Best when found on tap.

Clear amber pour with a dark ruby highlights and a massive head. Lacing and retention are exceptional. The nose is primarily biscuit with hints of sweetness and spice. Light bodied and well carbonated. The flavor profile is well balanced and complex. It begins with a nice biscuit that flows into the toffee and caramel notes. With a touch of sweetness, it transitions into the bitterness, which is an excellent example of an ESB. The finish is crisp and effervesces with a burst of caramel and well flavored bitterness.

Sweet floral hops play with caramel malt in the nose. Pale amber colour with two finger white head that diminishes to a thick cover. Caramel very noticeable in the flavour, balanced by a good, strong bitterness. Fruitiness appears in the finish. Lively carbonation and medium body. An excellent pale ale. Very enjoyable. Bottle.
