UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Nice and clean enough but little else to shout about. As a number of other people have mentioned, the label is also a bit misleading.

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
Very clean, crisp aroma. Clear light golden appearance, good frothy head with good carb. Just the smell and the look of this beer is quality. The taste is excellent. Again very clean bitter taste with hops. I expect atleast one down side to this beer, but no I thoroughly enjoyed every drop. An excellent beer.

Poured very flat.Bitter with some gentle floral traces.Well balanced although the hops push there way to the front.The label says its is a strong pale ale which it isnít. Its anexcellent bitter.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2006
Clear brilliant amber with a rollicking frothy head that laced the perimeter. Off the top of the head it was all hops, hops, hops. As the head subsided there was some burnt toffee and pepper. Very dry and bitter, with some citric character. The bitterness smooths out and seems a bit more balanced as it fills the belly. Fairly full bodied for the abv. A short aftertaste but a lingering bitterness. Nice easy drinking ale.

bhensonb (10970) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Mild chamomile and hop aroma. Medium amber color, and a fierce head which reduced to a quarter inch. Tattered lacing. This is dry. A hint of lemony citrus for hop at the start. The bitter starts, and it finishes. A bit puckerish. I donít find it similar to the cask, in the sense that the cask is softer and less bitter. Also less fizzy. Really good stuff. Take it to a desert island.

I love this on cask, so I decided to try the bottle. Itís very much the same as the cask, nice golden colour, slightly fluffier and larger head, but I guess thatís due to the carbonation. Good hoppy nose, some flowers, maybe some honey. Drinks well, apart from a little too fizzy, but palate is nice, long and bitter. One of the better bottles.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2006
Nice bottled bitter, but a bit too low key for me. "Strong Pale Ale" according to the label, but at 4,1% it is neither stong on alcohol or taste. Probably excelelnt for sipping on a hot summer afternoon.

Lubiere (9904) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2006
Golden amber with orange hues, and a thick receading off white head with lacings. Classy herbal British hops aroma, a bit peppery. In mouth, crisp biscuity malt, dry, with good hops bitterness, sustained and enjoyable! Reminds me of the St-Ambroise pale ale. Bought about a year ago, in London (Waitrose) forgotten in my reserves....this beer keeps well. Actually BB date is Jan 2006, so confirmed!

A strong, hoppy flavour with a very smooth mouthfeel. Good medium colour with a lasting creamy head. Finish is dry and bitter.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2005
(bottle) Orange-amber coloured hue with a mid-sized off-white foamy head. Buttery floral and herbal hoppy aroma with grape-fruits and English marmalade. Very dry and bitter hoppy taste, combined with fine fruity notes (grape-fruits) and a balanced maltiness (butterscotch) in the background, aromatic and lasting dry, bitter and herbal hoppy finish. This one is really a pleasure. Thanks to pivnizub for the bottle !
