This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2012
Draught at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas
Hazy dark amber color, with big creamy head. Very nice malt and hop aroma, toffee, toasty hop resins, biscuits; later, light feety yeast. The body is weak and the mouthfeel dry, with a very nice flavor of toffee, cookies and roasted nuts. The final is bitter and long, with some hop resins; possibly the bitterness is just too high. At this low ABV, pleasant.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. As a British ale drinker, this is really interesting and exciting. A best bitter strength beer made for quaffing, but in a suprisingly small bottle. Looks beautiful. Mahogany, lasting thick beige head. Spicy hop aroma, bit of ginger to go with the grapefruit. Yep. Just as I feared an unbalanced best bitter. You just can’t stick a load of floral and spicy hops over a beer without the malt backbone to keep it in balance. Yes the aroma is glorious, but it’s just got no middle and then sweet toffee and stinging harsh hop on finish. Where Thornbridge Lord Marples shows how to do this style of beer well, this doesn’t which is a great shame as it could be so much better. Yes the hops are fun. I mean really fun. But the rest just falls away and the finish is too metallic.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Bottle, at Patricks. A clear, amber beer with a small, off-white head. Lightly piney on the nose, some caramel and citrus. Rather weak, but pleasant. The flavour is quite similar, followed by a nice bitterness. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with some caramel hints. A quite pleasant one, easy drinkable. 120823

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich caramel, toffee, malt, hops and fruits. Probably a bit old, since hops havefaded a bit.

Leighton (15280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2009
Growler. Pours a nice, light amber-red hue with a fine, white head. Nose is hoppy with some malt undertones. Flavor is decently rich with nice character of lightly roasted malts and a kick of hops on the tail. Crisp, bittersweet finish. Quite tasty.
