This beer smells and appears a lot better than it tastes, a bit of a letdown.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2003 Bottled. Pale amber. Fruity nose with notes of cherry. Sweet and completely dominated by crystal malt flavour. Low hop rate and near watery mouthfeel. Low bitterness. After their Pilsner and Winter ESB this was a bit of a let down.

Best I’ve had in recent months smooth and clear

Certainly not as big as some pale ales, but still nicely done and really clean. Flowery aroma with a hint of orange peel, malty with a slightly bitter finish. Mine is the New Ulm version, and as usual is first class.

A mosaic off white head thinly tops this mildly malty, slightly hoppy beer. Middle of the road - a drink for many different occasions - a drink to share - a drink to come back to many times.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2005 Bottled Sept. 1, 2005. Clear amber body with a fluffy, off-white head. Pleasant aroma that balances slightly sweet toffee and brown sugar with luscious, fresh piney, floral hop character. A moderately light, smooth body entices the tongue, yearning for more. The flavor shows a delicate balance, especially as it warms. Sweet caramelly malt and earthy hops are blended with nuts and toasted grains. The balance here is uncanny. Just easy drinking goodness. Fresh, this beer is outstanding. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Woodard!

9/23/2002 6/3/6/3/12 = 3.0. This one was crisp and refreshing. Light in the malt and hops, very easy to drink.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2002
Draft, St. Louis Airport: Thick mouthfeel, malty and smooth. Mild hops. Very easy to drink and pretty balanced too. Has a little "musty" sweetness in the malts. Def the English slant, with its malt-hop ratio.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2002
Very soft malt and hops...wonderfully English and I love it. A tiny bit thin. Flavor has some lingering sweetness, and a touch of hop bitters. Well done. One I’ve been waiting for for a long time, courtesy MaxP.

A bit of an understated English pale ale. Im used to the hop-heavy american versions so this is a bit of a change. Some soft maltiness and hop balance. Nothing exceptional. Decent session brew.

Pale copper; Adequate head; Tangy-bready nose. Quite malty. Cloying sweetness at the sides. Otherwise, unacceptional.
