MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Draft at Olde Auburn Ale House, Auburn, Alabama. Poured caramel brown with thin tan head. Moderately roasty with a mild bitter finish. Low carbonation I will blame on the bar. Lightly spiced with hints of coffee.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 2003 draft. Big dark red color with some bright oranges. Moderate sized copper colored head that leaves quickly. Clear. Aroma of light red/orange fruits, some mild hops and a good earthiness. I was very impressed with the flavor. Balanced, enjoyable. Lightl tart cherries and a good malt backbone with some spiciness to it. Very good to style. Faint bready and nutty flavors. No astringency. yum. Now if they could only fix their ESB.

Dark reddish brown color w/ off white head. Aroma is bitter, slightly hoppy, some malt character. slightly spicey. Flavor is smooth, slighlty malty, with caramel notes. Palate could be a little thicker. Overall pretty good.

Very sub-par winter ale. Aroma was more like an over hopped pils. Very thin and a tad bitter. Some citrus notes as well. Not too good.

Dark brown with a whipped tan top. There's a thin consistency. It's a tad bitter and nutty with a metallic citric finish.

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2003
Reminds me of an IPA instead of an English Strong. Poured clear red-brown, with a very thin light tan head. Surprisingly weak aroma, with a touch of citrus. Flavor was dominated by grapefruit and pine hops, with a touch of bready malts and hints of fruitiness. Very bitter finish. Rather thin-bodied. A play on SN Celebration Ale? In any case, what are American hops doing in an English Strong Ale?

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Egg white type head, very dee copper color. Very fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of dry-hopping. Nutty, malty flavor with a hop flavor and lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. More in style with a thinnish IPA than an English Strong. Good beer, though.

3.2
Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2003
Draught, at the East 23rd Street, Manhattan, NYC. </br>Deep amber colour with a clear lacy white head. Big bitter hop aroma. Purple, violet flavour with a short to medium palate but still very smooth.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2003
2003 - It's ok, it is very nutty tasting and reminds me a lot of this brewery's Nut Brown Ale. A little bit on the bitter side as well.

A sub-standard winter ale. Hints of roastiness and earth. Hopsy and therefore a bit bitter.
