Not bad but a
disappointing beer. Nice bitter start but left a vinegary taste in my mouth. I will definitely try it again.

Clear mid-gold colour with small thin light beige head. Faint fruity/floral hops and lesser malt aroma. Start is bright, fresh and medium bodied with maybe a touch of caramel, candy, chewing gum and whiskey thrown in. This beer has more of a classic bitter type flavour than I expected. The first time I tried this I remember it starting well but ending poorly but this time I found it quite refreshing, it must have been the great outdoors.

Goldend color with a medium white head. Noticable alcohol content wich makes it a little sweet. Nice hopps bitterness and overall a decent ale.

I think this beer is a classic case of the whole being less that the sum of its parts. There’s some great grapefruit hops flavors and some nice sweet malt in here. However the flavors just never seem to mesh together. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t an unpleasant beer, it just never seems to come together in the end.

Very much a pale ale. Crisp, clear, and clean, well balanced, however it is extremely dry. A little to dry for my tastes

Copper with a white head. Aroma is relatively sweet, with a bit of butteriness. Flavor is medium sweet, fruity, peachy. Is a touch of butter, but not too much. Some slight notes of toffee and chocolate. Medium bitterness. A well balanced beer, but nothing too exciting.

Only slightly hazy copper color. Slight spice/citrus, but mostly a nice hops taste.

Orange gold with a strong white head and dry, spicy fruity aromas. Initially smooth, but leads to a pronounced, tart, spicy, and floral hop tone. There is also more fruit flavors and some caramel and crystal malts that bring a light toastiness. The finish is slightly dry, somewhat sweet, with hints of alcohol warmth, leaving a soft yet slightly cloying aftertaste.

Good looking amber ale with a small white head. Clear, some sediment in the bottle. Malty aroma, with just a touch of hops. Full malty taste, quite sweet, with a strong bitter finish. Good, but not as good as London Pride in the ’London’ beer category
