Bottle, 6.4%. Nice aroma, sweet and spicy hops with a hint of sour rag. Almost clear copper colour. Big, stable white head. The flavour has some of the same characteristics as the aroma. Good bitterness. Caramel finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
13th December 2008. Hazy gold brown beer. Creamy malt with a nice crisp hop profile that provides some dark orange but no bitterness. This blends well with malt providing some additional orange cream flavour. Dry finish. A pleasant surprise!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. My 400th beer to be rated and not a bad choice. Orange/copper colour with nettle and pepper hop aroma. Caramel/toffee flavours, caramel and hop continue throughout with hoppy pepper finish. Although 6,5% the strength doesn’t overawe it. Pretty good

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2007 Bottle. Lightly hazy, amber color with very low cream-white head. Low carbonation in the glass, but some of the beer came out of the bottle when I opened it. Fruity aroma. The taste is fruity, with some alcohol in the middle, and a long, bitter aftertaste. (050920)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Typical ale outlook: hazy copper brown and steady creamy white head. Fresh flowery hop aroma. Well-balanced malty body with bitter hop finish. This is the quality ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light copper body, with quickly dissipating off-white head. Aroma dominated by caramel and toffee maltiness, with slight English hoppy aroma bringing up the rear. Flavor is malty sweet, with decent amount of hoppiness -- still, sweetness is a bit much. Chewy body.

It’s good, but I don’t see the greatness. The chewy malt and earthy hops just don’t quite come together for me. A lot of good flavours, but they seem to fight each other.
