White head, bronze coloured beer. Malty, toffeeish flavour with traces of minerals well balanced by hopped dryness. Long lasting bitterness. A premium quality bitter.

clear dark amber color. very small white head. aroma was quite chemic and not very pleasant, but flavor was good: caramel and malts with a distinct dry hoppy finish. Reminds me a bit of Newcastle Brown Ale (for good and bad)

I found this ok. Medium bitterness, slightly minerally. Mouthfeel could be better. This beer overall would be better if they bottle conditioned it.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2004 Perfect golden amber body with a small white head. Rich aroma with honey and some burned caramel. Initial flavour is acidy, which turns into hop bitterness. Long lasting burned/bitter aftertaste.

Clear dark amber almost brown colour with an off white frothy head, that was mostly diminishing. Floral hop aroma that followed through to the taste, light firm body, soft bitterness and a short finish.

Pours clear brown with a medium off white head. Decent retention due to the medium carbonation. Not much aroma, bit of floral hops and toffee malt. Smooth, though a little thin. Nice sweet start with a bitter mid and finish. Slight toffee and grassy hop aftertaste. A nice english bitter.
