NIce aroma of citrusy hop with underlying malt. Beautiful copper/amber color with a light tan head. Starts with wonderful hops, mostly citrusy, followed by a thrust of malt, ending with very nice bitterness, possibly with some pine coming past the citrus. It’s all in the perception. There’s some sort of tobacco type spice? in the finish? Maybe it’s a bit of herbal note. There’s something there. Really very good. Ratman197 (15350) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle poured a clear amber with an off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, carmel and a hint of citrus. Palate was a little on the thin side. Flavors of malt, and carmel with a mildly bitter finish. This is hardly what I would call boldly hopped! imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2010
Bottled, pasteurised, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Red amber with white head. Good, smooth and fruity beer with quite a sweetish hoppy flavour. The body has a slightly thick caramel note, but with a soft, berry fruitiness, decent tongue coating, then a fruity light hop, not with the aggressiveness expected. Very pleasant.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Nice clear red color with amber hues and a small off-white head. Aroma of piney hops with floral notes, fruity hints and some caramelly malt. Sweetish malty flavor with caramel and a moderately bitter finish with some hops. Medium-bodied. Tmoney99 (14952) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Poured deep copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Complex citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.

Clear amber body with a quickly dissipating medium tan head. Aroma is sweet, strong grapefruit, floral, caramel. Taste is medium sweet grapefruit, supplemented by light caramel and floral notes. Medium body. More aggressive than "amber ale" suggests, which in this case is a good thing. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2009

Hoppy aroma with toffee and a fruity finish. Taste is bitter leafy citrus hops with notes of toffee, nuts, nougat, apple and peach. Medium bodied.
