Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Light amber color with a thin sheen as a head. Aroma is pepper, sweet sugar and mint. Taste is almost like iced tea, with the leaves still in there. Hoppy but not my cup ío British tea.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Amber with thin off-white head. Aroma of flowery, spicy hops. Toasty malt taste with floral malt backbone. Donít know that Iíd say it is astonishingly complex. Pretty good, but not exceptional.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburyís. This wasnít nearly as good in bottle as on Draught. Copper with diminishing fizzy head. Aroma of toasty malt, wet cardboard, earthy hops. Little bit sweeter than I feel it should be (as opposed to cask version). Finishes minerally with a little hoppy bitterness (but not enough).

Basic bitter-style ale...good on tap when youíre walking through Soho in London and youíre thirsty!

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2005
Pours a dark copper. Hoppy, briny aroma. Hops and salt and nuts in the flavour. Nice bittersweet-ness in the finale. Good session beer.

SDalkoholic (2371) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Weak in its aroma with barely any hop shining through. Tilted more to the dark brass gold color and tiny amount of head. The bottle has it listed as pale ale but after the first inital sip i knew it was in the ESB style because of its honey and sweet malt character along with a bitter hop bite. Average and nothing extraordinary. I still donít understand what the big fuss about Fullerís beer is all about it.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 12, 2005
On tap - chilled, not cold. Pours a deep amber with minimal soft, white head. Warm, beckoning aroma of sweet, buttery malts. Drips over the tongue like a hot buttered scone; a hint of sweetness with a dry finish that says, "go on, have some more." Move over, stout - thereís a new beer at the breakfast table.

sunevdj (4012) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2008 Pours amber with an off-white head. A little bitter with a mellow hoppy fruityness. Also a malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Low carbonation. Bitter dry finish.

FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 Pours a brilliantly clear copper red color and is topped by a frothy cream colored head that starts out a respectable two fingers thick. The aroma is nice; it is a good mix of hoppy, malty and fruity notes. I get aromatic notes of herbs, lemons, cherries, caramel and toffee. The taste is lightly sweet, and quite light on the palate. There is a nice herbal hoppiness to this beer up front and it carries through to the finish. The finish has a pleasing bitterness to it, but also has a bit of citrusy lemon character to it. The taste has notes of toffee, and caramel; this has a really nice maltiness to it that really compliments the hop notes quite well. This is an eminently quaffable beer that is really well balanced between the malt and the hops, though it is balanced towards the hoppy side of the spectrum.
