COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Authentic English-style amber ale with a unique character that comes from a special blend of five hop varieties and the use of imported English malts.

Did nothing for me. Soft and creamy, a more interesting mouthfeel than many Pales, but not a lot of flavor, fair hoppiness.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2003
Cask: Light copper. Fat spongy foam. Diacetyl laden aroma, with some straw, melon, flowers, dough, and vinegar. Soft, filmy palate. Buttery, caramel malt start followed by a metallic tinge and grainy hay notes. Soft barnyard finish accompanied by lemon rind, vinegar, and green apple. A rather hoppy and flavorful Pale Ale.

From the Cask -conditioned collection: Too yeasty to be enjoyable. It was served at "cellar temperature" which was a little different, but aside from that, it was very vinous, wine-like in its grape-like character. Thank goodness for 4 oz. trial glasses! Soapy looking froth on top of an amber body.

Cask, at publick house - Cask conditioning made this the most yeasty beer I've ever had, and I'm still not sure if that was a good thing. Nice clarity and head. A good amount of hops for a mere pale ale. This tasted like a liquid loaf of bread...literally, only with some hops thrown in.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Red or dark copper with big hoppy nose. Hops range from dry and grassy to grapefruity and piney. Its all hops on the tastebuds with no malt to ease the assault. Seemed a bit soapy, too. Very dry end, again gritty.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2003
Pale golden hue with a short white head. Flavor just not quite right--though mild in flavor, has a cloying sweetness, a touch of butter, and a dry mustiness that I couldn't quite place.

Thought that the old ale was better. Pale brown color. Some walnut, chestnut flavors, but mostly hoppy with some floral tones.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2002
On tap GABF 02: (Called West Indes Pale Ale). Dull hops aroma, flat body, clear orange color, stale taste.
