Bottle. Spicy, herbal, hoppy( maybe) aroma. Amber color. Spices, hops in taste. Strong bitter and dry finish. Good. MichaelAwesome (6516) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle shared with McTapps. A good one but far from the best of the Fullers Brewery. Dry in taste. Mild aroma of caramel und grains. Maybe some hops. Good one but not outstanding.

Anyone who detracts from the value of Corona, says it is a beer without flavour and without worth, needs to have a few of an evening and then reach for a bottle of good full-bodied hoppy beer because the comparison is remarkable. I did this and then had a Speightís Triple Hop Pilsner and it was like drinking beer for the first time. I have now moved to this. The depth of colour is better: orange amber with a little haze and a persistent white head. Aromas of oranges, apricots, malty biscuits, citrus leaf, crystallised fruits. This beer is thick and unctuous with delicate carbonation and silky body. Flavours lean toward autumnal orchard fruits, stewed pears and peaches that dry nicely and have very mild bitterness. Another taste reveals the warm citrus: Seville orange marmalade. This is a world removed from the massively hoppy Pacific NW IPAs that also sit within this style and this beer could well be subsumed and overlooked, but it doesnít deserve this. This is restrained, elegant, characterful. It is the ale of Harry Flashman, adventure and Victorian England, not the riotous Grunge and Punk Pacific NW. I hold that there should be two styles of IPA - old world and new world. Each will have its adherents and detractors, but in terms of old world, this beer is lovely. Mellow, easily quaffable and rather endearing. Compared to new world, it is fusty, out of touch and confined to a leather wingback chair reminiscing of days of old... just the way I like it. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Aroma has lots of malt and a little floral hops. Who knows how old this is Ė picked it up in a store in Panama. I didnít see it last week though. Medium carbonation, some head and lacing. Pours copper. Taste is pretty much just bitter with a small note of sweetness. Bottle. McTapps (6856) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep amber-brown in colour with steady head. Taste of ripe hops, low malt, spices such as grounded coriander and herbs such as thyme. Quite dry finish. AndySnow (7568) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012

caramel, grass, citrus, flora, amber, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent, bitter, long finish
Nice amber pint with one finger of white head. Sweetness first hits the nose followed by floral and citrus. Pleasantly bitter with some caramel. Light carbonation. Light to medium bodied with a slickness on the tongue. A slight astringency and long lasting English hop bitterness. Quite nice.
