Slightly skunky aroma(the clear bottle has to go), deep golden-orange/light copper colour. Not a bad bitter. Some nice British caramel malt flavour to start, slightly nutty in the middle. A bitter finish, although not hop falvourful, which takes away from the decent start.

eczematic (1306) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2002
Hoppy in an unsophisticated kind of way. Has a strange sort of bbq chook sort of oiliness that I’ve never experienced in beer before. A bit rough, all in all, and the bottle’s just silly.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2002
Clear bottle with a foil top. Looks all fancy with its good small head and dark orange color. I wish that I could say something good about it’s skunky taste, or lifeless flavor

Burnt orange color, virtually no head (what there was dissipated very quickly.I tasted the toffee flavor, but was not overly impressed by the taste.

Gooner (136) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2002
The appearance of this beer looks mighty tasty. Unfortunately, I thought it tasted like liquid banana bread. I hate banana bread! If you like banana bread...to each his own.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2002
Beautifully dark amber appearance. Nutty aroma. Crisp, nice maltiness. Rather light bodied. Fruity early sweetness, but dry bitter finish. Very english and really tasty.

Pleasently surprised by this beer. Had out of the bottle. I was afraid from some earlier ratings it would be too bitter for my liking, but it was not. A bit hoppy, with some aftertaste, but not entirely unpleasant.
