Poured from bottle to shaker glass. Had a reddish-brown color and a light tan head with moderate retendion. Aroma was certainly of English hops, maybe Fuggles or EKG. Toasty, nutty flavor. I had a strange "warm and cozy" moment while I was drinking this, as if I were sitting amongst friends in front of a fireplace at a favorite pub. Strange but true.

The pours is a dark amber with a white head. There is a light hoppish aroma with some malt and the flavor is mild with a light finish.

Bottle. With its crisp, tasty notes of slightly burnt chestnuts and a great refreshing quality to it, this is a bitter I can really live with. Nothing outstanding really, but easy to drink, good to drink and it sits well in the tummy. Good for another round.

BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 12, 2006
Pours a dark amber with a small off white head. You can smell the hops in the aroma of this one. Taste of Caramel and nuts with a nice bitterness to it. An enjoyable bitter and one I would try again.

wxman (1744) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Pours a brownish garnet color with off-white head that coats the glass. Smooth spicy bisquit aroma. Mild molasses flavor along with sweet maltiness and a note of fresh baked bread. Hoppy bitterness is slight but well balanced. Another pretty decent ale, but a little pricy for what you get.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 10, 2006
poured a brownish hue with a thin white head. Notes of caramel and hops on the aroma some earthy notes in the background. Initally sweet with a delicate hop finish this beer was really smooth and easy to drink. However it seemed a bit watery to me.

thewolf (12078) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2006
Tap. Deep red colour with little, but very creamy head. The aromas are mostly caramel and malts, but with tones of some bitter berries. The taste enhances the feeling of these berries, adding a drop of hops at the end as well. The beer has a nice creamy feel with low carbonation.

Dark amber color with a beige head. Caramel and hops aroma. Quite drinkable, although nothing special or remarkable about this beer.
