Clear amber beer, tidy white head. Light palate, crispy and fairly dry. Minerally and fresh. Well balanced. A little toffee in the malt. The hops, not surprisingly, are more bitter than fruity. Finishes crisp with a carbonated sting and a touch of bitter marmalade. All very English. An English bitter with the volume turned up!
Bottle at home in CT. Pours clear copper-gold with a big, frothy white head. The nose holds notes of melon, strawberry, mango, bubblegum and citrus. Medium sweet flavor with pale bread sugars, faint dough, gummy berries, tangerine, further melon. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish with slight leafy bitterness, some minerals, more melon and berries, biscuity pale malts, tangerine. Not bad. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle thanks to Jcwattsrugger. Pours clear amber. White head. Nose/taste of grassy hops and caramel malt. Lightish body. Plain. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 11, 2011
A: The beer pours a dark amber color, almost copper with a finger of slightly off-white head.
S: Smells like puke. Just bad. Cheesy and stale hops with a mild citrus note and some floral notes. Sweet bread and caramel with a slight brown sugar note.
T: Floral and grassy hop notes with a little bit of bitterness. The sweetness is definitely there. Sugary and a bit of toffee and caramel. At least it doesn’t taste like puke.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation.
O: Maybe the worst of the series. Just awful.
