Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2008
Slightly hazy copper-amber colour. Very caramelly and a little bit oxidized nose. This never went across the pond, so what gives? Caramelly taste with some pear/plum/apricot vague fruitiness from the yeast. The usual boring two-step of pasteurized English ale.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 (bottle) Pours an amber body with a light, medium head. Flavor and aroma of breadiness and caramel malt.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 11/20
bhensonb (11252) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Aroma of nuts, bread, and caramel. Amber color with a white head that quickly flattened. Thin to moderate body. Slightly fizzy. Flavor is sort of nutty with a carmel sweetness. The bitter is arguably enough, but the finish seems malty more than bitter. It’s more of an amber than a pale.
