Nice amber body with a fine head. Floral hops with a touch of malt. Good bitter flavor with some floral hop tones. Nice beer. Somewhat thin and a little flat but good none the less.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 9, 2003 Widemouth bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted light bread), moderately hoppy (flowers), with notes of peach and diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I'll never understand why nitro beer is popular (see draught can review below). It ruins beer. Period. Granted, this still isn't a great brew, but it's at least above average from this medium...pleasant aroma and assertive bitterness. Case closed.
Draught can. Head is initially small, creamy, off-white, fully lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Rated 4/4/5/2/9=2.4.

An unusual combo of refeshing bitter hops with a tasty malty overtones. Need to drink this one just chilled to get the rustic flavours at their best. Much more bitter than many English ales, so not for everyone.

Copper in color, head not too big, nor too small. Not the most interesting of beers, but has an interesting bitter finish.

Beautiful pour--orange amber, creamy head. Nose of hops and fruit. Smooooooooth. Way tastier than, say, Boddington's Pub Ale but there's still not so much going on in flavor country. Fruit and toffee flavors in the malt. Dry, hoppy finish. I tasted the nitro-can version, by the way.

Slightly foggy copper color with a somewhat fluffy cream colored head. Butterscotch and typical english amlt aroma. Interesting hops profile - spicy and bitter. Dry bitter nutshell finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber w/ a generous off-white head. Earthy aroma w/ some wort/malt character. Smooth, somewhat velvety feel. Flavours are also earthy. Caramel and butterscotch give way to a dry, moderately bitter finish.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2003 Okay, so now there are beers in milk-bottles. This one is amber/copper coloured, and that off-white, frothy head makes it look really yummy - which it is. Fruity flavour initially, then a long lasting bitter ending.

Bottled: Has an excellent deep amber colour. Impressive head, which last long. Aroma is hoppy but a bit onedimensional. Flavour is light bitter and a little vague. Some bitterness in the end.
