schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 26, 2006
0.5 L bottle, íbbeí Aug 07. Clear dark red with a coppery hue, abundant froth lacing moderately. Nose of sweet, sticky malts, aromatic hops and a hint of cinnamon. A lot of malt sweetness and some (lasting) spiciness in the taste; with a thick, smooth, almost syrupy palate.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2006 Decent flavor, though the aftertaste does stick with you for quite a while. Great looking, not too bad if you are looking for a middle of the road English Ale.

brianprentiss (700) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Not fantastic, taste similar to Fullerís ESB but not as good. Great looking beer, very little head, leaves strong aftertaste that lingers for 1/2 hour. Why is this stuff $9.99 a six pack?!?

Can, bought at Euclid liqours Upland,ca. Abit on the watery side, expected a heavier malt flavor, decent drinker, but expected more,ok.

nutty, mild hoppy flavor, but more of a dominance by the malts. unlike most brown ales iím used to - the finish was not dry. it resembles a bit of a sam smith brown ale, but a thinner flavor. on the drinkability scale it scores very high, higher than most dark english ales.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Pours brown with a small light brown head. Aroma is pretty weak with some tones of carmel malts. Flavor is some carmel and toasted notes with some slight breadiness in there. Body is watery.

Iíve got to admit, the bottle and the drawing turned me off, but Iíve seen this beer around so much, I had to try it. Pours a nice deep ruby colour, big rocky head. Initial taste if full of caramel and chocolate, but I found that the more I drank of this, the less I tasted of those nice flavours. They were replaced by a nice hoppiness and a carbonation that seemed to attack the back of the throat more than the tongue (annoying?). I donít know what the deal is, but I can taste the alcohol pretty strongly, especially for a 5.2% that isnít swill. Nice to try, but there are other beers that Iíd take over this any day. Probably wonít buy again.

Very Good looking color, its brown and red fused together to a make a beatiful copper like hue. Has some head, minimal, and leaves little lacing. This is a great English Ale because of its perfect carbonation, pleasing taste, and it is very easy to drink! damn I want another

Dark red/brown with a small beige head. Aroma of nuts and a little caramel and rye malt. Flavor of sweet malt and nuts with a little bitterness.

Good pouring beer with minimal head. Nice combination of flavors and a not too bitter or overpowering after taste. I like it.
