Expiration date 19 Nov 07. For my 100th rating, I figured I would rate a recipe from one of my favorite breweries. Pours a very nice reddish-bronze with a short-lived creamy head. Mild-medium aroma of hops. Noticeable but not overpowerng. Full-bodied mouth feel. I don’t notice any kind of carbonation. Floats gently down my throat with a subtle chaser of hops. I prefer the Fuller ESB but this one is a darn good brew too. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
A good classic and one of the better widely-available beers. Remarkably, this is available on board many British Airways flights. BREWMUSKCLES (2687) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2007
i found the beer to be medium in body and very light in flavor. actually i could discern very little flavor other than light broomstraw and a light hop remnant on the middle of the palate. the beer is not particularly watery or thin as i see it, but i find it insubstantiate. i can not in all sincerity be sure what i tasted other than that it was beer and it was not offensive in any way. as the English like i suppose. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 500 ml can. pours amber with a small white head. malty aromas. thin flavours. i either got a bad one or this beer is over-rated. way to watery and thin to be rated this high on this website///////////////////////////// 500ml can from the LCBO. bright orange with an off white head. minmal nose. flavour is balanced. decent bitter but still not a fav of mine, which suprises me as i love Fullers gilvanblight (825) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2007
Very red pour like old rust. Clear and filtered. Weak head just skimming the surface. Very stong scent of malts with some flowery scents and licorice mixed with something sweet. Very thick and flavourful mouth. Definate licorice, lots of malts, flowers again and a hint of spice (cinamon?) Very rich and filling. A slight taste of nuts and sweet raisins in the finish. A slight lingering bite on the tonge. A rather nice ale.

bottle. Copper colour, medium-sized head. Rather hoppy with interesting flavours of roasted malt. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Draft. Nice color and some piney aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Excellent malt and hop balance, and good for normal drinking. joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - JUL 25, 2007
clear orange amber. carmel aroma with a very light citrus note. medium light body with soft full bubbles. tastes of nutty carmel. real mellow beer, leaves a nice and light bitter sweetness Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Bottled 50cl. It pours a beautiful amber beer with a slightly tanned and nicely remaining head. A lot of tiny bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is wonderfully leafy. Lots of peaches and oranges in the nose too. Slightly metallic. Also a lot of hops. The taste is very enjoyable. A perfectly well balanced beer. Good mouthfeel. Biscuity, leafy, fruity, with hints of honey. Wild strawberries, mango, flowers and soap show up. Very smooth. Some lingering licorice-like elements in the finish. This beer leaves a beautiful lacing. A most enjoyable experience. Rerate: Great. Easy drinking. Sweeter than I expected comparing the initial rating. Hints of candy floss showing up. Perfectly balanced. Great. I will stick to the initial rating (maybe slightly too high). But this is definitely a beer I really enjoyed. Rating 2012: Excellent. Underrated to my tastes. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 21, 2007
