I do not know why this got such bad ratings. It had one of the most unique aromas and tastes I’ve had in a long time. While not your traditional ESB, it’s totally worth drinking. The bouquet is very rich. It’s like orange marmalade and honey on white toast with hints of smokey clove. Its got a similar flavorful sweetness with some soft bitterness along the edges. The palate is solid with lively carbonation. dubios (7) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2004 does not count
Very good stong lemon from the coriander. Almost a Belgian Beer.
Good golden color typical of british ales.
Big head about medium carbonation.
Refreshing treat for a English Ale.Lot of lemon flavor good herb beer.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Poured with probably the biggest head I’ve ever seen from a bottled beer. The beer was bright orange-yellow-copper. There’s a citrusy-sweet aroma. And the flavory is surprisingly lime-flavored, almost as strong and sweet as a frozen lime pop. This is an extremely unique beer that I really like.

Smells quite nice, like an ipa ia a beutiful flowery valley where the hops grow like freshly pruned grass...pours a murky tan mud colour, great foamy head..some minimal lacing...hits ya like boom, intresting and magic (black magic i am guessing). Has a unique taste, with a Gentleman’s Bitterness!
This is great to have every now and agian but make sure you try it at least once. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 1, 2002
An interesting ale. I want to know how you get so much hop flavor and aroma (I know... late addition) but still I like the way these hops come though on this one with a touch of coriander. The balance is a little of but one sniff and I fogive them. A nice sping ale to brew with.

1pt 0.9 fl. oz 5.2% ABV. Wow What a head. Wonderful fruity smell. citris, and apples? yep. golden orange color perfect with the aroma and a pillow white head. Floral hops smell complements the citrus aroma. Light Body with excellent malt taste complemented by hops. fizzy, long finish, BeerRenter76 (1013) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
I kinda liked this one, rather interesting. My one complaint is that it was exceptionally foamy upon pouring, which took a long time to disapate. Aroma of apricots, citrus,coriander, and a slight peach presence. Body was a murky amber- tan with a monster head that eventually faded, not much lace left behind. Flavor was interesting with citrus hints and an almost spicy/earthy flavor being the most noticeable. Overall a pretty good beer that is worth a try. Originally rated on 10/15/08.

Bottle. Amber body with a thick foamy head. Nose is very nice-very zesty with lots of lemon and coriander. Taste-coriander, alcohol, lemon, fresh cut grass, gin, and cellophane. This beer is very reminiscent of gin and tonics with a touch of lime. I really enjoy the use of the coriander. It gets quite cloying as I drink it, but overall it is very enjoyable.

Pours copper w/ full spritzy froth. Aromas of spice and hops. Light to medium nectar w/ ample soft residuals. Flavors are dry, bitter pine, tangerine, w/ a spicey character. You can really taste the corriander. Finish has a nice bttering. Overall: Well balanced. A nice sessionable brew of unique character. I liked it.
