3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich golden, almost amber color with a creamy tan head that slowly settles into a landscape of hills and valleys. Body is lightly carbonated and speckled with small bubbles that rise slowly. As the head settles, patterns of intricate lace are revealed around the rim of the glass. Aroma is fresh but sour; malt and yeast dominate the aroma while suble undertones of, alcohol, cherry, sweet fruit, almonds, and a variety of hops appear throughout the nose. Flavor is a bit off. Mostly malt with a bit of hops and a bit of alcohol in the finish. While this beer’s aroma is somewhat complex its palate is not. Overall, this is the kind of beer that I like to try out and then leave for a while. A store shelf oddity, to be revisited some day when I feel in the mood for something different.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice pour out of the bottle. Dark amber color with a flaky white head. Malty, fruity and somewhat bitter it has a very smooth aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden so be careful. Close to being a great ale, just felt like it was missing something.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep copper orange with a foamy white head. Very fruit hop aroma of apricot and peach with caramel malt . Flavour is fruity - predominantly apricot but with some banana. Some sweetness of caramel and nutty-like flavours, changing to a tangy sourness. Bitterness is quite sharp and the finish is dry. Full bodied. Hmm...really like this but something just wasn’t right with the balance. The flavours don’t come together all that well. Despite that....still very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice light amber orange with a fast fading head that leaves lacing.I noticed a malty sweet nose during the pour.
Tastes starts very sweet and surgery,with toffee and earth.The middle milds out a little to a real great beer the typical british ale, with flora hops and a sweetness blended with pepper.,but then that flavour is lost to the bittering hops and a slightly out of place tang.Still all in all a good beer.
nice body and easy to drink,I will try this one again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 500ml. Pours a fine amber with a good white head. Has a kind of zesty, candyfloss aroma. The flavour surprised me, as it was a little ordinary. A little bitter sweetness coming through but lacking a good hoppy kick. Definitely some floral, orangey flavours in there. A medium mouthfeel. Not as lively as I was expecting. This is certainly a drinkable pint but it is, I feel, somewhat overrated.

(5 Oct 04) Poured carefully this beer is clear, bronze in colour, with a off-white head. It has a hoppy aroma and a lightly sweet body with notes of spice and golden syrup. The palate is soft and bitter but the sweetness hangs on until the end.

Very nice after an ice cream sandwich. Dry and complex, malty - finishes with a typical grainy, astringant, slightly hoppy english wonderfulness. Seems I like SOME english styles quite a bit. Almost trappisty. Recommended.
