Sparkling amber,nice beige head.Vague malt nose.Light easy drinking malt profile, nearly undetectable hops. A session beer, not much here nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2009
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting inch of foam. Aroma of clean-spiced caramel apple. Flavors of caramel, cheerios, light melon and citrus, some dry wood and a hint of resin on the finish. Near medium body is smooth and sessionable, and just dry enough on the finish. Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a deep copper to medium brown, with a nice but short just off-white head. Nice notes of malt come through in the aroma: toasted bread, raisons, rich toffee, and some slightly burnt caramel. The palate is malt-forward, showing a heavy hand with the use of English character malts, with Victory, Crystal 40-60, and a bit of special roast making appearances. Hops balance the sweetness, but give little in the way of character. The finish is neutral to slightly sweet. Overall, a beer that can compete with the best English Pales on the planet (i.e, Fuller’s ESB). cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours a dark gold with slight orange hues. Nice malty caramel aroma. Very sweet, but overall a bit bland. Decent sessionable beer, though. dchmela (3088) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Draft at Pour2424 in Vegas. Pours a light brown with a thin white head. nice hop aroma, spicy and floral. Light malt body with a good woody hop bitterness. Decent brew, but not great.

moderate light brown color with a decent head. Aroma of light hops and a sweet malt caramel. Taste is smooth and lightly sweet. I really liked this. Well balanced. SorenE (168) - , NEW ZEALAND - MAY 22, 2009
light copper, fast off white head. subtle malty aroma with earthy woddy notes. the flavour is smooth maltiness, bread maybe a hint of stonefruit and oak. kinda weak but very drinkable. much along the lines of imported english pales but have made it to NZ in MUCH better shape.

Thanks to ghawener. Drank it with rcasta and ghawener in my house. Pours amber color. Medium bodied, malty and sweet, oaky and spicey. bitbucket (2166) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Bomber. Pours clear amber with a lacy off-white head. Fresh, spicy hop aroma with a hint of pine, wood and caramel. Light body, watery texture with moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet taste, softly oaky fig and toffee. An almost dusty and not particularly bitter finish. Seems like it would go nicely with a variety of food. sdk (33) - Island Bay, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 20, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured a lovly reddish brown, very clear. Nose is quite light, just a hint of hops. Nice taste of malt and hops. Not too over powering, good finish.
