Copper-coloured with rich, creamy beige head that laces nicely. Floral and malty aroma. Caramel sweetness meets refreshing hop bitterness, developing into a very dry finish.

Ingevara (788) - SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2005
A brown ale with a small head but lots and lots of flavors, and a deep lingering aroma. There are plenty of hops that enhance a very round and enjoyable bitterness. Not very sweet, but lots of bubbles. An excellent beer to enjoy at any occasion.

Bottled. A brownish bitter, quite highly carbonated.Some hoppiness but a fairly mundane bitter-cant really be called extra special.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Dark amber colored with a disappearing off-white head. Quite heavy sweet malty and spicy aroma with cookie notes. Malt and spices in the flavor as well, typical English though more flavorfull than the average English ale.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
50 cl bottle. Served in O´Hara´s stout glass. Amber color. OK head. Very ’English’ aroma: slightly sweet, biscuity malt background; lightly hopped. Flavor is well-balanced: pleasant, biscuity malt, and mellow hops. Pleasant mouthfeel.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2005
Bottle. The colour is medium deep copper; the rather airy pale beige foam is two finger thick. Looks like a classic ale to me.

The smell is fresh and a bit chemical, I noted some hops, both bitter and aroma. It is a bit roasted with sweetness and a slight metallic finish.

The carbonation is good; maybe the bubbles are a little too small…

The taste could be summarized in “A good no-nonsense English ale”: A mild somewhat sweet a fruity, flowery touch develops into a large balanced bitterness with a slightly roasted touch. A dry bitterness and some sweet-burned malt dominate the long aftertaste.

This is a great everyday ale!
