Bottle. Pours with a copper color and a medium head. Aroma is mainly malty and some toffee. Flavor is more malts, some butterscotch and perhaps some spices, almost a faint pine thing going on there. Body is too thin and in total the beer is a tad too watery. Also need some more robust hooping. Average at best.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Hazy red-brown pour, thin beige head, nice sediment, minimal lace. Sweet malts and grass hops on the nose. Turns into real malt bomb on the tongue: apple cider, toffee, nuts, toast, with more of the grassy hops to balance the sweetness. Tasty, but somewhat watery.

Reasonable beer. Poured with a nice tannish-brown head. Slightly hazy, brownish dark amber color. Aroma is caramel, malt, and nuts. Not nearly as much hop as I’d expect from the English moniker. Still, it’s an easy pleasant beer. No off flavors. Good finish.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Thanks to bockyhorsey for this beer. Mahogany color with no head. Nuts, malts, earth and some peat. Flavor is sweet malt, hops, grains and some soft scotch-like flavors. Enjoyable. Thanks Bill.

Thanks to buckybeer for this one. Produces a small off-white head over a cherry brown body. Rich malty, nutty aroma. Malty flavor profile with just enough hop bitterness to keep this nicely drinkable. Good feel to it.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2008
Pour is hazed ruddy amber with a thin tight bubbled tan head...smell is lightly sweet with caramel and some faint wet dog...taste is lightly sweet with caramel, then grainy, then that damn dog is back in the house again...

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2008
Amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts and mild hops. Taste of light caramel with a light hop finish, semi-watery. It’s okay but nothing to write home about.

Sand Creek Brewery Night at Three Cellars. . Aroma of caramel, butter toffee. Flavor is slight nutty, sweet malt, and a good hop balance. Light bodied. One of Sand Creeks Better beers.

Pours a dark amber colour with a decent sized head. Mouthfeel was decent, lightly cabronated with a noticeable caramel flavor. aromas of toffee, vanilla and peanuts.
