ON TAP: light fruity smells, auburn color, low tight head. Toaste and fruity malt. Big mouth feel. Somewhat interesting and certainly well-crafted. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 1, 2004

tiger. hint of darkness. some peach nectar in the aroma. quite sweet, hint of brown sugar, but has a nice, lightly salty and bitter finish
Pours a great copper color with a nice white head. Aroma of hops, malt, florals, and chardonnay. Tastes hoppy, with a nice malt, toffee, honey, cognac, fruit, and floral finish. Nice complexity. A great beer. spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Slightly different from the Lager. Lighter amber color with a small white head. Decent hoppy aroma, malty. Same is true for the flavor. Well-hopped all around. Good beer. BearBrewer (86) - New York, east village, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Interesting beer. both mild and at the same time a little sharp. Pours with a substantial off white head, mild biscuity, bready aroma. Amber/brown in color, not too much body but a little malt flavor. Hops start out smooth and finish bitter. Not bad, but not my favorite

Amber, brown, clear color with small white head. Very malty aroma. Nice. Flavor is malty with a bitterness that comes and goes suddenly--like a ship passing in the night or a bad cliche. Generally good, seetness turns sacharin and has strange aftertaste. Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Bottled from,157th street bodega,-,nice brown color,white head,crisp strong taste,i think they should still call it Pennant 55 ale just cause it's BK history, damn fine beer very flavorful. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 30, 2004
This is a very malty English-style pale ale; it actually kind of reminds me of a brown ale. The flavor is sweet and a little nutty, with just enough hops to balance it out. Good color and decent aroma. A pretty good example of the style. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 25, 2004
This is a very tasty example of this style and the reason Garrett is one of my favorite brewers. Pours a deep hazelnut color, with a light frothy head. The aroma is full of sweet malts, the flavor is full of toffee and caramel, with a bit of a nutty taste following into the a bit of a bite in the aftertaste from the hops. I could drink this all the time.

(draught) Lovely copper color with small whit head. Some malt aroma. Very balanced hops and malt flavor. The hops aren't over the top-definately an English style (as opposed to American) pale ale. Would be a fine session beer.
