Bottle Conditioned.
Pipkin pale malt, Crystal malt and maltose syrup. Challenger and Goldings hops. Morland’s original yeast.
A quite unique, strong, bottle-conditioned ale with an original gravity of 1059, full of flavour and character with a richly malted aroma and a nice, smooth finish. From a blend of Pale Ale and Crystal malts, this is a rich and satisfying beer with good presentation. A strongish beer in terms of alcohol, but there’s no bite from this Hen’s Tooth!

Poured and opaque reddish orange with a large white head. Aroma was a tad metallic and tasted malty (which I like). This is a decent English Ale, not super bitter, and has the makings for a long night if one had six more of these. Nothing great...but would never say no.

W szale lidlowych zakupów piwnych nie zorientowałem się, że Hen’s Tooth piłem już jakiś rok temu. Jestem wyznawcą zasady, że szkoda życia na powtarzanie tego, co już wypiłem, więc zachwycony nie byłem. Przy pierwszym podejściu oceniłem to piwo na 9/10. Teraz już taki łaskawy nie jestem. W szkle "kurzy ząb" prezentuje się całkiem przyzwoicie - bursztynowy kolor z białą, sporą pianą. W zapachu świeże, nieco cytrusowe i chmielowe. Nuty te potwierdziły się w smaku, pojawiło się też nieco więcej goryczki. Alkohol dobrze ukryty... Obniżenie oceny wynika z faktu, że piwo to niczym specjalnym się nie wyróżnia, niczym nie zaskakuje.

500ml bottle. Why do they put this in a clear glass bottle and have it exposed to skunky ruining ?and it’s bottle conditioned too ..totally nonsensical. The nose is dusty yeast, boiled sweets, old leather furniture, and some skunny vibes that are off putting. Fire orange with a beige head ...Tastes like it smells . Meh

Bottle. Dark toffee ale with a dark cream head. Smells like toffee and a bit of biscuit. Taste is heavy on the malt. A touch of metallic. Some toffee notes and very little "kick" for the decent ABV percent. Surprisingly light.

Bottle from Tesco. Pours hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Aromas of toffee apple, stewed fruit, caramel. Taste is sweet, burnt biscuit and syrup. Sweet, but also dry finish.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - deep amber with a thin head. Nose - honey and stewed apple. Some toffee. Taste - syrup and burnt biscuit. Palate - close to medium bodied. Dry crunchy/tangy middle section. Dry, but gnarly finish. Overall - ok.

The beer has a floral sweet aroma with toffee, banana, butterscotch. Also feels a bit oxydated. Taste is delicate sweet with some little dry/sour finish. Overall not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2017 Bottle. I found this beer to have a strong distinct yeast taste that reminded me of sick that I naturally found off putting. Ive had a few stronger (6% and above) beers with this taste and I think it comes down to the yeast and brewing process and my odd palette. Other than that flavours of caramel, malt and English noble hops come through. Thin body. Other than the decent ABV its rather a dull pint

Bottle from BevMo! in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is toffee, corn syrup, old soggy well water. Taste is earthy malts and soggy vegetal hops. Some mineral qualities and then some artificial sugary bits.

Old review before making ratebeer account. Not bad, but had fairly yeasty flavor.
