Poured reddish amber with a small off-white head. Average hops aroma. Taste is peppery hops, with a somewhat spicy malt backbone to support it. Very decent beer, and tasted much better immediately following the John Courage Amber I had just before.

bottle - 3/19/05 - Poured a clear dark brown. there’s not much smell really...maybe a little musty. Taste is malty, not much hoppiness in this. Taste is better than the smell. Not too bad I don’t guess. What little finish there is is malty as well. Not bad overall. I could drink it.

Pours a nice reddish brown, not to much head retention, a little lacing down side of glass. But a very clean tasting, malty English dark berverage. It is a little spendy at $4.50 for only 17 oz. but well worth it once in a while as a treat.

poured a nice reddish-brown with a medium sized, light brown head. A little on the watery side but had some good nice malty flavor.

Foxbush (1289) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Great bottle! This was not an impressive beer. The head overwhelmed the glass. The color was clear and deep amber. The taste was watery and bland. Great name but it needs some pizzaz! This a Christmas beer 2012. I upgraded some of my marks. The caramel malts were dominate in the aftertaste. Good beer to enjoy while watching bowl games.

Quite skunky, somethings not right here, some malty notes, creamy head, newcastle style. Not a particular favorite.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 6, 2005
Dark amber colour with an off-white head. Quite malty with a slight skunky flavour (as prevoiusly noted). Not a whole lot more to this beer, no significant hop flavour. Wasn’t too bad a beer, but not really worth the price.

Avery unpleasant brew Diacetyl and other off flavors dominate the nose for me. one of the worst from a very poor brewery.
