UPDATED: MAY 31, 2008 Pours a light copper with a medium off white head that fades fast. Medium malt aroma, caramel, biscuit, light toffee fruit (that fades with the head) and pepper hop aroma.
Well balanced malt flavour and dry fruity hop finish phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2008
Pours a clear amber colour with a small tan head. Decent lacing, noticeably nutty character but generous on the hops. Mouthfeel is firm and astringent. Aroma is of caramel, nuts and grass. Finishes dry. thewolf (12742) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008

[thank you, Chris_o]
Pours clear copper with a fine, creamy film head. Aroma is softly hoppy, but not much else. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is also softly hoppy, okay sweet malty, but only low bitterness. Very dull.
Bottle picked up from Westholm, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon consumed this evening 17-05-08 Mid amber thin white head, some soapy hops. Refreshing beer, I agree with the commercial description this is quite english in style, reasonably well balanced bitter/sweet flavours, light fruitiness, just wish it had bit more panache.

12 oz. bottle. slightly spicy aroma. pours adarkish cloudy orange. a little bitter but not much. kinda like a very light weight IPA. light on the palate but overall a very drinkable beer. nothing to really distinguish it though.

Medium, lightly roasted, malt aroma. Copper color with a reluctant beige head. Medium bodied with mild, near creamy carbonation. Starts with light, fruity sweetness. Quickly followed by a very decent amount of hop. Flavor tends to go a bit watery, but it recovers. Finish has hints of sweet fruit, some peppery spice notes, and a good amount of bitter. Finishes dry. Seems more APA than EPA, but it’s very enjoyable. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Draft from the Goose Island Brewery beer stand in terminal 2 @ O’Hare. Orange in the class with a frothy off-white head that lasted and left light lacing. Sweet & spicy aroma with a hint of citrus. The flavor seemed to have an orange citrus mixed with some malts. Sweet up front with a light bitter ending. Medium body and smooth carbonation.

12oz bottle spicy grassy aroma, a very interesting flavor thats deferent than most ales mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a good amount of head. As far as pale ales go, it’s fairly average, with some notable malt and hops coming through in aroma and taste. A decent beer but very average. wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2008
Bottle, Beers of Europe. Muddy orange amber colour, thin whiteish head. Sweetish mandarin aroma. Some fruit and hops in the flavour, but at 4.3% lacking any real clout. Vaguely above average I ’spose.
