3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cute pun, all right..."Goodbody", "(H)our glass (figure)" so, jokes aside, is this rather pricey beer worth it? (a whopping $5.29 for a 16.9 oz bottle where I bought it).
Appearance: deep, dark brown body, clear in the light, with a small, faint head.
Aroma: all fruit, sweetness and yum, but rather quiet.
Taste:...and terribly mild on the palate, too, with a thick malty feel, and an oddly short finish. Strangely flinty. Mouthfeel’s actually heavy, although the flavor it carries is nothing to sing or shout about...nothing about it is...incredibly ordinary,,,speaks softly and carries a nerfbat. Although the taste is nice, bright, fruity, tasty, it’s nothing you can’t find better represented in other beers. I’ve got one more beer left in the fridge to try from this line, and I’m still wondering why they exist. Or are so damned expensive. I definitely don’t need another of these.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the Beverage Castle, Tampa.
Has a bit of a fresh scrubbed glass, cleaning solution aroma, but that is muted. Stronger aromas include fruit and malt and a bit of caramel and sugar. The body is an orange tinted dark brown and holds a well formed thumb thick head that is quite lasting and very substantial looking. Medium sweetness with some very noticeable alcohol that gives a sort of dry chemical bitterness. Some dark fruit notes and a suggestion of spice. Finishes with some hop bitterness. Fairly decent, but the alcohol seems entirely too harsh for a relatively low 6% abv beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 1pt .9 fl oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. Nearly opaque copper colour with lots of chill haze, a thin layer of beige foam, and sticky lace. Aromas of sweet malts, caramel candies, molasses, orange marmalade. Flavours: rich malt sweetness, well-balanced by woodsy/earthy hops, toffee, toast, roasted nuts, freshly baked whole-wheat bread, dried apricots, a sweet and juicy plum, faint chocolate and coffee notes. Some pleasant oxidation--I’m pretty sure this bottle had been sitting there quite awhile--but it works with this English Strong Ale style. Well-concealed, alcohol, smooth and warming. A very tasty English ale overall.
