Flavorful but not overpowering, refreshing but not at all thin. A good "drinking beer."

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle 355ml. Amber/copper beer, almost no head. Smells really nice hoppy, flowery, peachy and some caramel in the background. The flavours are not so pronounced hoppy, but it is there, more caramelish and malty like an english bitter, some sweetness too. More hoppy, bitter, long and fruity finish. Well balanced, good beer!

walleye (1098) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2006
from the tap. poured a copper amber, with a small ring of off white head do to the fact that person who poured the beer into the mug filled it to the top. araoma mild hops, some sweetness, malts, amd a hint of grain. flavor, the hops and malts were well balanced, honey nice bitterness, spices. good beer going to have to try from the bottle because on tap it was good. nice smooth mouthfeel to this.

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2006
Nose is subtle with some malt. Pours medium copper-amber. Flavour is nicely bitter with some citrus and a touch of herbaceousness - maybe some thyme or something. Finish is long and dry, although the palate is a little watery.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2006
Tasted 16/04/2006. 330ml bottle from Rumbles, Wellington. Pale copper, bright, lightly carbonated, with a foamy light-tan head that laces a little but doesnt linger for long. Barley sugars and nutty grain on the nose, a hint of citrus and an appealing, faint and slightly musty, yeast note. Dry toffee-like malt up front, in the mouth, with a mild lolly sweetness. This is followed by citrus hop flavour and a strong, pepper and grass, bitterness. The malt profile holds all the way through the bitter finish. Slightly hard water but not quite as much as some English pales, like Taylors Landlord. Soft-medium carbonation in the mouth, medium weight. Great beer, well crafted. A classic strong pale ale, which Im surprised hasnt scored more strongly on here. Perhaps a little too subtle for the US market.
