pretty sweet and fruity for an English beer. reasonably nice pour, i enjoyed this with my meal and, though it’s nothing spectacular, would have it again. WhiteSoxFan (152) - USA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle. Beer of the month. Pours a clear light copper with a small head that dissipates quickly to a layer of foam. Little bit of lacing. Not a ton of aroma. Taste is good, drinkable, nicely balanced between a good amt. of malt (a little carmel flavor) and bitterness, not a lot of hop flavor at all. Thin to medium mouthfeel with a good amt. of carbonation and a slightly dry finish. This is ok to good. It just isn’t very exciting. Nothing bad, just not really anything to get excited about. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
This English Pale Ale pours an orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is floral and earthy. A medium bodied English Pale Ale. Malts are caramel, toffee and semi sweet. Hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. Mild flavors. Would make a decent session ale. Kind of boring but drinkable. Nice crisp finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. HumuloneRed (765) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 1, 2006
Another average beer from the beer of the month club. 12 oz. Bottle. Clear light copper color with a good head and a negligible amount of lacing. Earthy nose. Malt and earth in the flavor. Clean beer but not very interesting. RAYBOY01 (2010) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2006
B.O.R.I.N.G...slight citrus nose with a lightly roasted caramel malt base and a moderate herbal/floral hop finish. This just left me wanting a decent beer.

In the bottle. The March 2006 Beer of the Month Club selection (Thanks pman!). Amber with a slightly off-white head Somewhat yellow and medium sized, but does not last very long. The aroma is mild of a faint citrus fruit, oranges perhaps? The finish is again mild with a subtle bitterness. Has a mild sweetness up front, but it is fairly empty in the body. The palate seems to be overly carbonated. In fact, the bicarbonate mouthfeel is strangely salt conjugated and makes this beer wierdly salty in flavor. The hops are out of balance, but the salty bicarbonate overwhelms just about all the other flavors. So very, very odd... FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 This beer came in by beer club. I have not encountered it before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright copper color with a medium sized yellow-tan head that fades fairly quickly. The aroma is lightly nutty and has a vague floral hop presence. The flavor is sour nut with a tangy floral hop center and a dry nutty finish. The dryness lingers. Hangover (1142) - oxford, Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Copper pour with a surprisingly lasting eggshell head. Malty butterscotch aroma. Taste is of English malts and very earthy/grainy. Hops appear in the finish which is pretty bitter. Aroma becomes more buttery and perhaps some diacetyl when warmed. Commercial description pretty much nails it. I rather like it... best example of this not-very-popular style I’ve had so far.

This copper bodied ale is a bit thin, but otherwise is a satisfying session ale. It’s got a light, orange petal aroma over caramel/toffee malts. The hop bitterness asserts itself nicely in the flavor, finishing on a mild but lingering bitter note. Tasty EPA.cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2005

Not a bad beer. I found it kind of thin and light-bodied, but thoroughly drinkable. No real overwhelming flavours.
