A beer you like or hate, I likeit. nice malt nose, and a subtle hop spicyness that is deceiving. Not the best english Ale, but a good one none the less.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2003 Updating my early pre-geeky notes: Light fruity caramel malt aroma with hint of persimmon and earthy peppery hops. Bright, clear red-amber color with orange overtones. Short fading head but good lacing. Balanced flavor presentation with tingly peppery hops first apparent, followed by an orangey malt flavor with light caramel notes, and a light finishing bitterness. Very smooth, almost slick, mouthfeel, but not undercarbonated. Curious fullness of body despite overall mild flavor - although I might consider that typical of an English Brown Ale (despite its classification here as Bitter...I'd place it as Brown Ale or Dark Mild, except maybe a bit too much hop flavor for Mild.)
