Tap. Brown amber with relatively thin head. Sweet malt, spice and earth. Not too exciting but not bad. Medium body with short finish.

Pours a brownish amber with a big beige head. Aroma is big sweet caramel malt. Flavor is light sweet malt, earthy hops, with a nice bitter finish.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2009
12oz bottle. Amber-red-brown color. Big foamy beige head. Smooth and delicate caramel and amber malt aroma. Very English in some respects, quite malt centered with mellow carbonation. Thick and tasty, medium to full bodied. Pretty thick and sweet, closer to a Porter or thick Red than a Pale Ale. Either way, a completely respectable brew, with some complex malt tones. Subtle balanced hop bill evens it out quite nicely. A little sugary, but a solid beer nonetheless

Draft. Pours amber brown with a thin head. Light aroma, with a hint of malt and hops. The flavor has toasty malts with some earthy/floral hoppy notes. Moderate sweetness. Tasty.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2009
12oz bottle from Supreme Liquors, Cambridge MA, 6 November 2009. Coppery colour. Slight haze - maybe a chill haze as it did not appear to be bottle conditioned. Moderate beige head. Slightly earthy, berry fruit aroma with a bit of cardboard. Decent earthy hops in the flavour with a lingering bitterness and some nutty malts. Slight metallic tang but nothing too intrusive. Quite like an English best bitter in feel. Straightforward but decent enough.

12 oz bottle quickly disipating tan head slight taste of spices and and complex very satisfying taste. The bitters in this brew make the unique flavor. Not my normal style of beer and a nice change.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
clear copper color, fluffy quickly disipating tan head, lacy. very airy nose of sweet malt. flavor is much more complex than the aroma, spicy, nutty, musty, malty (the sweet malt in the nose seems to have fled from the flavor). medium bodied, tingly mouth feel, musty, bitter finish. an enjoyable brew which gets more interesting as it warms. i would drink this again, but i wouldn’t go out of my to get it. bottle provided by my humble servant, cornfield.

Ruby/amber pour with off-white head. Malt aroma. Flavor is a little caramel, some sweetness. Smooth tasting, low carbonation. Great lacing on the glass. Very easy to drink . The best of the available S.F. beers.
