Golden amber. I preferred the regular pale. This is clean and thin. I even preferred the lager. jkwalking05 (4740) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2009
Light amber in color. Head is small and disappears fast. Taste is more hoppy and not very complex. Light pale ale that is not bad but not great.

Bottle Pours a deep golden amber with a hefty, dense light tan head. Lots of lasting sticky lacing. Mild fairly sweet malts are on the nose with subtle hops. No real sharp citrus or piney notes. Flavors are a sweet bready malt flavor. Slightlly woody with very little hops again. Very mild bitterness at the end. Feel is very smoth and a littel heavy. Quite soft on the carbonation."quaffable but far from inspiring" jsquire (4492) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Penny copper color out of the bottle with quickly dissappearing white head. Apple fruity nose. Lightly fruity malts with apple and peach with a nice hop finish. A little watery, but very pleasant and I could keep this around as an everyday beer. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2006

Wow, I did not guess East Kent and Fuggles in this, at all. When too cold, this was too aggressive. The aroma was mild (slightly like parmesan cheese), but the first sip provides a zippy maltiness that makes you expect balance. Yet, that is a flash in the pan and after a split second a metallic zing of bitterness hits around a metallic, vegetal, grassy flavor. Then the maltiness disappears entirely for a long slog through the hops. As it warms, the long finish takes on a different character, more pronouced in its sweetness and more pleasant in its bite. I definitely see the "tea" references, but it is still distinguished from its English cousins (in which tea-flavors are common) by its more lively hopping. This ended up as an "o.k." beer in my books after a really rough start. BillKismet (4064) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Amber bodied with a pearl cap, this celebratory ale does not impress with its slight malt aroma. However, this is an easy to drink beer with a smooth malt flavor. A solid amber, albeit one that does not distinguish itself from the ruck. Crit (4011) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2003
Amber with beige head. Earthy malt nose. Light malt profile throughout. Smooth and clean, but bland, more of a transition beer jake65 (3695) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Clear orange/amber color with a small white head. Tastes of maltiness, caramels, and finished with a light amount of hops. Taste is very clean and crisp, finishes very well. Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 13, 2002
Malt, malt and malt is all i have to say about this one-its pretty good, something different from full sail than their usually hoppy products
