Filtered bottle. Status Uncertain.
A unique white ale achieved by using very pale malts. White Ale is sharp and vinuous with light, refreshing flavours. There is an elegant hoppiness to complement the subtle malty taste. Made with Halcyon Malt, Fuggles, Targets.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 27, 2006
Gold with low carbonation, bright white head. Aroma was of organic character with slightly sour over lap and pale malt. Medium bodied. I would say it was even salty -sweet, fruit white wine as well. Interesting.

1998 Vintage. Aroma is yeast, malt and lemon, yellow, pours a small white head. Flavour has yeast, malt and some lemony notes. Light bodied, a bit sweet. Ordinary. Thank You very much Michael Robis of Chesterís Beers of the World, Hamilton!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Pale ales are common in Belgium but I believe rather rare elsewhere. Pilsener golden with a small head. Comes with the vinous character of the other Usher vintage beers, but completely lacks the juicy fullness from the darker malts. A bit like a dry sherry. Almost no bitterness. Very unusual if not to say unique. 260603

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Light yellow gold colour, whispy short head. A fruity, banana and vanilla concoction with a tangy hoppy overlay. Sharp thin finish. Quite disappointing.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2003
The aroma is fresh and fruity with metallic notes. The color is orange and it has a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is flat, fruity, and metallic. All in all a weird below average ale.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2002
Bottle. Bright golden colour but poor head and moderate condition. Initial shortlived aroma of hops, some background hop flavour, but dominated by a nasty cheap lager like taste. Reminded me of Fischer Tradition, which is no great reccomendation

leaparsons (9942) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2002
A sharp and acidic beer. A cross between a pale ale and a cider. Unusual, but no better for it. Ushers Ruby is a classic - buy that instead.

omhper (23713) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2002
Golden ale with vanilla tones. Malty and flavourful, but still the least interesting in Usherís vintage range.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2001
Complex, vinous fruitiness and thick slice of malt. Nothing wheaty about it. A very unique ale, as it brings flavours typical of an English golden ale, but much bigger.
