2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beautiful clear amber color with great head. Watery palate bitter but pleasant malty flavor.
From old tasting notes. Originally labeled as Suffolk Extra Ale. Copper red color. Rocky beige head. Nice floral hop aroma. Dryish toasted malt flavor with a hint of spruce and spicy hops. alexsdad06 (10289) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from old backlog notes. Pours a hazy orange amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet malts, toffee, caramel, aged fruits with mild bitterness to the finish. A tick is a tick. MattiasA (862) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2014
Backlog. Can from Systembolaget. Caramamelly and bready with some dough. Decent, but thatís about it. Erzengel (8626) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014

@ Sergioís Louisville Hazy dark amber with a 1/2" head that lasts, dots and splotches of lace. Taste is caramel malt with molasses and dark toast that moves smoothly through the palate to a mild floral hop finish. Taste is far bigger than one would expect from 4.5% abv, a terrific session brew. Seeing that it is retired is unfortunate, and makes no sense (unless Broadside provides most of the sales?) Highly recommended. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from World Market, Durham. Always had an inexplicable soft spot for this brewery, even if their beers werenít especially fresh or distinctive when encountered. Semi-hazed amber on the pour, has a chewy appearance that seems to suit the style a bit. Medium filmy head doesnít last long. Papery nose suggests age/oxidation but itís still fragrant and inviting enough. Solidly nutty and malty with just a touch of bitterness. olio (10169) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2013

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 28.02.2009TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma is somewhat fruity with hops, toffee and some nuts. Flavour has fruits, some apricot, citrus, hay, toffee and biscuits. Good and clean bitter.
Wow, this is retired? Another bitter bites the dust but I have full faith that the British brewing scene is livelier than ever and continues to blossom daily. Good thing cuz Iíve always been kinda down on British beers but I havenít really had a large enough sample size to make any sort judgement. Bottles from spirit haus and the moan and dove in Amherst as part of the mug list. Bitter sour malt. Thatís what I get from every bitter, even most today and definitely back at the Dove in 2005.
