3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A fairly standard pale ale. Definitely not a bitter as the style designation currantly states above. A graininess and high IBUs working together to make this beer taste rather bitter with not much else to provide balance. The aroma is rather pleasing, smelling of hops and malt but the bitterness really takes the flavour over. Still an enjoyable pint. Very clean.

I really enjoyed this one. The flavor is not typical of the english styles, its just not all that bitter. the hops are fruity and the beer is refreshing. there is a pinch of quickly disapating bitterness in the begining. very good but not one that most people who like english styles would enjoy. its an english for us germans.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak brown-orange colour with a rocky, blossoming white head. Interesting aroma - slightly sweet and malty with fruity hop notes. Body is light and bitter with a hint of sweet fruit in the finish. Not a remarkable brew but better than other novelty beers I've had.

This was a straight up novelty beer. The only thing holding it together was the hops. It was only mildly interesting and finished very confusing. Just like the movie. Try it.. but do not think it's going to be great. Then try the beer.

Bottle: Got pulled in by the label like everyone else. Pretty good bitter with some complexity in both the malt and hops, (let us not forget the Witches) . A good way to get the macro types to try a real Bitter.

Sort of bitterish, a little hoppy, old fruit, some malt, lots of carbonation- but nothing special. I likrd the bottle and the name.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer was a real disappointment. Pours orange and cloudy, with a big fizzy heads that fades quickly, leaving an aroma that is less than desirable. The taste is full of dough, with no body and a very light thin mouthfeel, the finish is very chalky and bitter.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Initial aroma was peat, that faded away as quickly as the head died and all that was left was a faint doughy scent.
Body was thin and watery, with a mild spicy hop accent.
Finish was short and mildly bitter.

tastes more like a pale ale than a bitter, slightly sweet at first with a mildly hoppy finish, gets a 5 on appearance for the bottle. just wish i was watching the grail while drinking it ;)

big fluffy head on a clear amber beer. strong malt and fruit aroma. very very malty body with a lingering bitterness, finishing dry. not bad, but i bought it for the bottle anyway.
