This is the shit! Fantastic bitter (ístrong pale aleí it isnít) - Strong, lemon and cut grass hop aroma. Excellent balance - smooth malt, some sweetness on the palate, extravagant hop flavours. At 4.1% eminently sessionable, and ABV belies its depth of flavour. Belting.

Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev, tupalevís. Slightly cloudy orange, average head. Sweet aroma of ripe clover, honey malt - very fresh smelling - but not all that bitter - grassy, maybe. Taste is a little harsh, grassy/grainy, wants to be sweet but tastes pungent/bitter, somewhat like marigold dust. Average body, very lively mouthfeel, long finish with warring honey/harsh notes. Overall I still liked it, but it didnít really seem to gel.

jercraigs (8071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. Bizarre aroma, floral, honey, mustard plant? WTF? Minute touches of tropical fruit. Rough astringent grains. Light caramel malt. Bit odd. Average palate. I pondered if it might be past its prime, but others in the group quite liked it so perhaps its just a matter of personal taste. <P>"Looks like we got the Brits in round 1. We already kicked their asses in WWII. Cheer-i-o, letís do it again!"

Hoppy, complex and I canít wait to have this on tap and on cask. Page 456 of Michael Jacksonís Great Beer Guide and only 238 of his 500 Classic Brews to go.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2007
Bottle 50cl. Poured a deep rewd amber, crystal clear with a large off-white blooming head that lasted. Pleasant aroma of roast nuts, caramel and malt, with a slight hoppy sweetness. Rich malty bitter in flavour, a little spicy with woody notes. Defined and tasty. The palate is full and smooth. All round an excellent tasty bitter; on tap I have never been that impressed but this changed my mind.

Clear amber colour with a beige head. Malty, fruity aroma with hoppy floral notes. Malty, light caramel sweet flavor and a hoppy dry finish.

Bottled. Light amber coloured. Unclear. Off white small head. Sweet and herbal aroma with some light fruitnotes. Flavour is quite soapy and herbal. Has some caramel notes. Is quite thin bodied. Is harshly bitter in the end.

Muggus69 (1273) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2007
500ml bottle served with a slight chill. Solid nose full of earthy, floral and fruity hops typical of these bottled British bitters. Good amount of toffee like malt, almost biscuit like. Clean orange-gold body with fluffy off-white head and lace. Fantastic body of malt considering the strength; plenty of toffee,caramel and sweet biscuit like notes, followed by a swift, quite sharp bitter hop bite with plenty of leafy and earthy flavours lingering to a long end. Definately one of the best examples of this style iíve tasted, Iíd recommend it.

Beautiful dark amber/copper color an a nice and lasting head. The aroma has notes of hops, fruit and caramel. Iím puzzled by the "strong pale ale" since the ABV is 4,1, but itís a good description of the flavour, that has a lot of body in spite of the low ABV. It has notes of hops, fruit and caramel and a nice and distinct bitter finish, that has a hint of citrus.
