UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Sept 2007. Bottle. Golden amber body with a smallish white head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Grassy, lightly fruity. Similar flavour, mildly hopped, grassy, lightly grainy. Average palate. Touch dull. 5-6/3/5-6/3/12 - 2.8

TFOB 2003. They are calling it Special Pale Ale now. Amber colour, slight head. More hops in the aroma than the flavour. Enjoyable but doesn’t make me crave another. 5/3/5/3/12 - 2.8

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 Re-rate: I think I got a pint that was slightly off the first time I rated this, ’cause I had a bottle today and found it much more enjoyable. The hoppiness in particular was a lot more pronounced than before. I’ll have to give it one more try, but for now, it’s up from a 2.6 to a 3.2 Original rating: Reddish-brown colour with a small head. Enough hoppiness in the aroma to make me expect this to be a decent pale ale, but the flavour is a real let-down - just a hint of bitterness in the finish, and otherwise pretty non-descript.

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2003
A hint of hops but not much, with some bitterness thrown in. It's light and smooth, so it's not a bad drink, but not much in the way of its own character.

Malty nose. I was surprised to find that the head disappeared so quick. very clean. Slighty bitter. but still smooth.

Crit (3471) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2003
Sparkling light amber,fast fading beige head.Mild malt nose. Well balanced flavor but underhopped for the style.

Very bland and boring. Not much in the flavour category. Not very creamy.

Some hops scent, golden. Nice level of hops, good bitterness. Pretty good on tap.

omhper (20444) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2002
Nut brown. Softly malty and nutty with some bitterness on the end. Balanced but unremarkable.

Boring beer. I was looking for some nice hops, especially since they advertise Fuggles and Golding on the label, but this tasted bland.
