2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear bottle = bad. The first thing i noticed about this was its strong skunky aroma. Had a brownish orange color and an impressive foamy tan head. Slight sweet and tangy flavor, but very overpowered with a skunkiness. Although it was thorougly masked with skunk, I did notice a very nutty flavor coming through. I am going to have to give this a poor rating for now. Once again: clear bottle = bad.

Well, I don't have a lot to say. This is certainly a pale ale. Actually pretty damn tasty and nicely balanced, but there's just nothing interesing going at all here. Beautiful deep gold/amber color. Sweet with fruity tones; dry finish.

a great pale ale, if you get one of these make sure you let it get ICE cold, it was a great example of an english pale ale.

Nice amber color with large but mostly diminishing head, some lacing, thin to medium -bodied. Floral and citrus nose, with a hint of grainy malt. Sweet and sour on the palate, only slighty hoppy aftertaste. A above average session ale.

I really did not like this. It reminded me of another bad beer I've had, but I can't think of it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden bronze (unfortunately displayed in a clear bottle). Decent head with just a little bit of lace. Nicely sweet, fruity nose with a hint of toffee and earth. Medium bodied, smooth, and round. Mostly sweet, english malts. Strong notes of toffee with a slight sour tang. Mildly bitter finish.

Skunky! Why do they insist on the clear glass bottle. First impression is bitter skunky flavor. Behind this is a mild malt and simple hops. The head and color are good the but the flavor doesn't back it up. What's with all the hype? Someday I'll try it fresh and perhaps change my rate, but for now, I am not impressed.

Amber color. Some maltiness in the nose and the taste but not enough to make of it a great beer…
