A bit spicy in aroma and taste; subtle chocolate notes. Body is a bit thin. Sligthly sour and a bit too yasty for my taste leaparsons (10496) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2006
Bottle. Amber with a large fluffy head and yeast floaties. Aromas are banana, yeast and spices with caramel and hints of citrus. Flavours are yeasty with bitter lemon and spices. Light caramel malts with a dry, bitter finish. Great "foam in the mouth" palate. Very good. reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2006

Bottle. Brown-amber colour with an average off-white head and some carbonation. Sweeter yeasty aroma, light fruity, raisins, roasted caramel. Full body, some light sprankling. Finish is light bitter, with some very light sweet-alcoholic touches. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2006
From a caged corked 750 ml. bottle with a coded bottled date on the back label, sampled at a cellar temperature in a chalice.
Poured a cloudy orange hued amber with a foamy, bubbly topped off-white head that settled into a thin sudsy lacing.
Aromas of tropical fruits and apples, clove and spice, very herbal and a sweet, lightly grainy maltiness.
Good carbonation and a crisp, softly dry and tart, smooth carbonated light bodied mouthfeel.
Pleasant tasting and quaffable, good drinkability, clove and musty yeast, banana and pineapple tart fruitiness, hop spicy and herbal, soft in it’s bitterness, doesn’t interfere with the malty crispness, the alcohol becomes noticeable towards the end, ends warming in the palate, and a dry yeasty, herbal and sweet malty finish.
A good strong ale from Urthel, tasty and balanced, the right of carbonation and body for the style, well worth trying.
