Very dark brown color with a bit of caramel in the nose. Very malty with toffee, coffee and modest body. Not bad.

Taste at the wig and pen. Had a sort of passionfruit aroma - apparently they use only one hop in this (galaxy, I think they said). It was not bad but I prefer other beers of theirs with more pronounced hop flavours.

Tap. Clear golden amber with a cream head. Aroma of gooseberry, biscuit, passionfruit - v sav blancy. Light bodied. Tastes as it smells with firm slightly spicy bitterness. Wouldn’t have minded just a little more sweetness. Refreshing, nice balance of fruity flavours but neither hoppy enough to be just about them or with enough presence to be wholly satisfying.

Bif (1693) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 15, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Served a clear golden color with a small head that fades to nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and bit of caramel sweetness. Taste of so me caramel sweetness and bit of fruit, with a trace of grain in the background. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a bit of a creamy texture. Well balanced. Very enjoyable beer, nice flavor with a bit of character. Worth a try.

davidm (1979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 9, 2011
Tap. Amazing beer. Aromas of caramel, berries, and tomato. Predominantly sweet, with very long length. Palate is velvety, with a thin-to-medium body. Red, with a frothy head.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pick of the beers for me at Wig & Pen. Went straight to pints of this once I’d gone through the samples of each tap. Pours a clear golden copper, with a small but thick off white head. Aroma is a pungent piney grapefruit, reminds me a lot of galaxy IPA from bridge road. Taste is tropical, with a dominant piney hop and some oak. Bitter finish. Beautiful! Unless they had the kegs hooked up to the wrong taps, this is far better than the regular pale ale in my opinion.

...on tap there. Very smooth, nice hoppy but not overpowering nose. Well balanced, crisp, clean, flavorful. Had some nice citrus type flavors, with a tropical edge. Nice one, great lacing, hand pumped beer.
