A classic beer of true quality, Spooks Ale is characterised by its huge biscuity malt palate, derived from three traditional roasted barley malts used in this brew, giving a glorious deep red hue. The excitingly complex malty flavours are wonderfully balanced by a huge citrusy, hoppy bitterness and aroma from a particularly fruity hop added at four stages in the brewing process.

good quality Kentish bitter. Very surprised to find a strong chocolate flavour in this otherwise hoppy wholesome medium bodied standard English bitter.

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2013
Dark amber colour. Smells malty and fruity. Taste biscuit with a fruity taste. Bitterness on the finish. Thin body. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Pours clear chestnut with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has toasted caramel, nuts, biscuits, light piney. Medium carbonation, fine dry and somewhat grainy mouthfeel. Flavour has toasted caramel, slightly nutty, biscuity. Quite bitter finish. Piney, grassy and light earthy.

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours an amber clear body with a big cloudy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, grains, hints of pear and red berries. Taste is caramel, grains, dusty hops and hints of dry grass. Thin body, medium carbonation. Fair enough, but very far from a winner in my book.

fellebag (1541) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle 500ml. Small white head, leaves a thin layer. Clear brown color eith a red touch. Aroma has hops and malty cookies. Taste of smoked pointed peppers and malty cookies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

biscuits, malt and sweetness all poke through the maltiness in this one. Enjoyed it - for a ’wee seasonal one it was nice and would certainle have again.

SarkyNorthener (4765) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Amber colour with small head. Aroma is very bready. Taste is also bready with hops throughout. A little bit of citrus shows through. A typical just below par Shepherd Neame beer.
