Bright ruby-red color, with a fine, flat white head. Aroma is very hoppy spicy, slightly bitter with a sweet touch. The finish is changing very quickly in an extremely bitter taste. Unfortunately, the bitter tone to the middle part is a little pushy. Finish is overhopped, very bitter.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2004
Bottled, in a cafť in Brugge, Belgium.
A classic pale ale. Crystal clear brown with a smooth silky mouth feel. The enjoyment of this beer is derived mainly from satin mouth feel rather then from original or complex flavours.

jerohen (2240) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2004
Amber coloured, firm head. Sweet hoppy aroma. Quite bitter flavour, like an English Pale should be. Pleasant thirst-quenching beer.

Dorqui (2220) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004
Malty. Intense foam. Very hop. It has a strong and aromatic but not exceptional taste. A lot in the nose is felt. Good persistence.

Swaroga (2205) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since itís a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly itís a surprising beer. From taste I would say itís more of a typical brown brown.
