3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
interesting bottle and cap; maybe just a gimmick, but i bought it anyway.
not-so-subtle malty hoppy aroma, with a pungent skunky overtone (probably a result of the clear bottle?). very bitter at first, but it smoothes out into a good balance of malt and hops. buttery and roasty. appropriately small level of carbonation, and the finish is crisp and clean. not my favorite, but i'd buy it again....

Aroma of malt, hops. Pours a very nice copper brown, head is dense and tan. Caramel in the flavour with hop bitterness. A typical British pub ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml oldfashioned milk bottle - nice design. Copper coloured, moderate head. Lovely hoppy aroma, hints of ripe fruits and caramel. Bramling Cross hops account for a distinct bitter flavour and aftertaste, quite dry - I'd like some more malts to balance the hops, but that's the style, I guess. Still, this is a nice beer - will definitely buy again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Earthy aroma with a touch of sweetness. Medium off-white fully diminishing head - looks a bit still and heavy. Nice mild bitterness balancing a good malt base with a sweet and earthy finish. Medium mouthfeel appropriate to style. On tap at Mr. Pickwick's in VT, USA.

Can. Fruity, caramel and nutty aroma. Slightly sweet caramel body with enough bitterness to balance. Good for a can.

Medium sized offwhite head, short lived. Clear copper color. Clean malty, nutty nose. Medium body. Malty, biscuity, grainy flavor profile. Finish is dry with a pronounced hop bite. OH YEA! Cool wide mouth chuggin bottle!

I swear the aroma is freshly brewed ice tea. Appearance is iced tea! Well maybe a little darker. My first beer that came with a pull off metal top similar to a Slim Fast (if you've ever had one of those) Anyway the flavor is slightly bitter with some faint caramel and tea leaves. Maybe I'm crazy but this beer is the 1st cousin of tea! My only real complaint is the metallic weird aftertaste. An ok bitter and certainly very different. Not something I would seek out again though.

Amber/copper coloured. Small white head. sweet caramel aroma. Quite bitter flavour with some caramel. Almost too sweet toffee flavour in finish. Quite one-dimensional.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nitro-Canned. Typical great head and lacing like other nitro's. Sweet malty aroma. Body is actually not too thin - malts are thick and almost caramel, a hint of bread, too. Hops are sharp and metallic - almost hurts the sides of my tongue. Better as it warms, but still not all that pleasant. Leaves a sour streak down the middle.

I picked up some of this the other night, and I won't lie, I thought the cap was cool on it. I drank it at a party and my friends thought I was drinking an iced tea. The mouthfeel lingered even after swallowing. Some caramel notes with a good bit of bitterness. Tastes fairly typical of most of the average English brews that I've had.
