35,5 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Esplanadi, BB 09/2012
Aroma feels very english with lots of toffee hops and some caramel. Flavour has English toffee, grassy hops and caramel. Woody and nutty finish. Decent, and faithful to the style.

mjs (5327) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
(Bottle, 0.355 l - BBE Sep 2012, at Pikkulintu, 20120908) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, cardboard and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The age had done its damage but I doubt this beer would be much better if it were fresher.

Voodoo (433) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Pours a brownish gold with a decent head and good lacing. Taste is a bit bland, a touch metallic and a bit of bittering. The good General would have probably wanted a bit more flavor, more bittering and a touch more hops.....maybe Little Round Hops.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a clear golden amber from the bottle with good.tan head and great lacing. Aroma of english pale malts and slight hops. Taste is better than the smell, bitter yet refreshing. Solid pale ale.

Finhead (1352) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
A clear amber-orange pour with an off-white head. The nose has an herbal and pine hop aroma with some light bread malt. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bittersweet initial taste that grows more bitter into a dry finish.

cheap (4572) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Nice moustache. Strong old winey palate. Slight fruit aroma. Feels like much more than 4.8% and I usually like lower alky beers. Fairly good co2 sizzle. Ropey. Metallic hints. Bitterness sets in as session continues. Takes a few to get used to.

Malty caramel aroma nice clear amber color. But taste comes out bitter and bland. This isn't a terrible ale but lags after such a nice aroma ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
