pure enjoyment from this brewery. Well hopped, malt, great with a multi-course supper. Quite drinkable and complex. Sadly the last of 5 great beers from this region brought back by Douglas D JoeMcPhee (9519) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2005
Copper coloured beer with a thick creamy white head. Aroma is quite malty, caramel, toffee, and a touch of vanilla. Light spicy hops. Flavour is semi-sweet, with vanilla, toffee, and a creamy toasted malt character. Light apricot fruitiness as well. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 7, 2004
some pretty damn good yeast they've got going there. sweet stonefruit aroma. hint of butterscotch schnapps and then some pepperiness and a slow bitter finish with some self raising flour DYCSoccer17 (3706) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Thanks to Sammy for this rare beer. Sampled with Tim and Rudy. Vinous, alcoholic, fruity aroma. Kind of smells like fermented cow corn ethanols. Moderately hazy copper color with a whitish head. Very tea-like flavor to start, turning sweeter and caramelly. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Thanks to Sammy. Nose has tea and orange, sweetish malt. Flavor has orange, bread, malt, tea-like. A solid English Pale - I’d like to try this one fresh.

Copper color, slight haze, cream colored head. Fruity malt and hops go well together, orangy along with some bready flavors. Medium bodied. Pretty nice. eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2004
tastes pretty much identical to fullers 1845 to me, a real fruitcakey beer if ever there was one. yummy combination of dry firm malt and heaps of spicy dry hop taste - did i mention the word dry in that sentence? bitter but balanced. lots of pepper in finish. real good. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 23, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2006 Amber in colour with big white creamy head. Typical English bitter style, mild hop bitternes.
(Perhaps too may Belgian beers this week and change of palate brought marks down)

Dark amber in colour, small white head. malty hop aroma, estery/apple like flavour. Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2002
Dark copper colour with a well formed off-white head. Butterscotch aroma. Rich caramel malt flavour followed by some chewy hop flavour and bitterness before a quick, clean finish. Fairly thin on the palate, as with all of their beers. bozoNZ (778) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 30, 2007
330ml bottle from Blenheim New World. Nice copper colour faint head but does linger. Aroma quite malty. Nice toffee / butterscotch. Good body, sweetness thru the middle and a real maltbiscuit flick at the finish. Well crafted beer.
