clear ruby brown with small tan head. the beer had a faint malty aroma backed up by some floral hops. good creamy medium light body and a soft carbonation. great well rounded malt flavor, slightly plums and chocolate, with a decent bitterness. it was a very mellow and smooth drink

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2007
(Glad I got one before it went extinct!) Pint bottle. Amber brown with small but sticky head. Mild aroma of chocolate and plums/prunes. Malty with hints of toffee, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate. Some hops at the end, but not as much as I expected. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Not bad.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Fairly standard English bitter in a bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small head. Aroma of caramel malts and a musty grass hop aroma. Taste is mild sweet caramel offset by a fruity grass hop flavor.

milewide (1579) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 15, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2007 Is this new or old? Bottle says Young’s Dirty Dick’s Ale "From the Ram Brewery". Modern bottle with flared bottom. 5.2% alcohol . "Best before 17 AUG 07". Red amber color. Mostly malt aroma and taste. Decent ESB IMO.

BREWMUSKCLES (2300) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2007
not bad for an english bitter. still a lot of these bottles around. decent hop fruitiness. light and smooth malt character with an creamy component. ok but nothing spectacular. just a good mouthfeel with decent taste.

Pours nut brown. Medium sized head. Aroma is of noble hops and sweet malt undertones. Flavor is great. Lots of hop fruitiness, some toast from the malt profile. Perfectly balanced. Really nice bitter. One of the best session beers I’ve had.
