good colour with a nice burnt taste i find ale has to be a good temp to enjoy. ALLOVATE (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 7, 2005
66cL means you get a lot of contemplation time if you don’t like the brew, and, oh-so luckily, this wasn’t that bad a drop. Problem is that it didn’t exactly keep the heart pulsing, either. Poured into a tall stein, a lovely, dense off-white head formed atop a clear copper body, lasted and left rings of lace down the glass. Appearance sadly was all that saved this one. Musty, caramel and vanilla nose, lightly toasted grain note with an inkling of sour lemons. Lighter than expected body, in the mouth, a little watery and very soft in carbonation. A light amount of toasted grain and rasping, leafy hops made the mid-palate before the hops took over for the short swallow. Lifeless upfront, it was similar to the Fiddlers elbow, but just a watery smaller brother by comparison. Overall, it did go down with ease and was quite refreshing, I suppose. Average.

Great label, lame brew. Little head. little taste, little mouth feel, little everything, From goliath , huh? hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Yes, great bottle. Why aren’t all beers sold in 660 mls? Otherwise I thought this was disappointing. Head vanished very swiftly. Malty aroma, brief caramel malt in the taste, watery and thin, followed by an even briefer bitterness. The name deserves something better, though the new label is a big improvement. oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Dark orange colour, mediumsized beige head. Skunky nose with hints of fruit and hops. Weak bitterish flavour with hints of caramel and malt. Watery palate, dry mouthfeel.

Amber colour with a small off white head. Malty aroma with hints of caramel and a light hoppyness. Flavor is fairly bitter with a touch of some caramel malts. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle poured dark caramel with a big thick head.
Aroma is a little skunky but not to much.
Flavor of malt, spice,caramel.
Not bad at all..very drinkable. bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2005
Clear amber body with a compact head. A light grainy and caramel aroma. Lightly bitter in the taste, light body, nuts, watery and dry. GarethYoung (1111) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2005
this was slightly too cold to begin with, but i got butter and caramel from it, as it warmed i got very strong notes of burnt toast which dominated the taste as well. a little thin in the mouth with a lightly bitter, very slightly dry finish. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2005
The beer evacuates the 660ml clear bottle a luminous copper with the head smallish and frothy in texture, the color off-white after its rather quick demise the lace forms a thin and concealing sheet. Nose is malt with butter like aroma, caramel, crisp and clean with the start lightly sweet and the malt adequate, the top is thin. Finish is delightfully carbonated and the hops delectable in their spiciness very dry almost vinous aftertaste that lingers long on the palate, ah the delightfulness of an English Pale Ale.
