Cute pun, all right..."Goodbody", "(H)our glass (figure)" so, jokes aside, is this rather pricey beer worth it? (a whopping $5.29 for a 16.9 oz bottle where I bought it).
Appearance: deep, dark brown body, clear in the light, with a small, faint head.
Aroma: all fruit, sweetness and yum, but rather quiet.
Taste:...and terribly mild on the palate, too, with a thick malty feel, and an oddly short finish. Strangely flinty. Mouthfeel’s actually heavy, although the flavor it carries is nothing to sing or shout about...nothing about it is...incredibly ordinary,,,speaks softly and carries a nerfbat. Although the taste is nice, bright, fruity, tasty, it’s nothing you can’t find better represented in other beers. I’ve got one more beer left in the fridge to try from this line, and I’m still wondering why they exist. Or are so damned expensive. I definitely don’t need another of these.

Pours a cloudy reddish-brown with a small light brown head that doesn’t last long, no lacing either. Bready and caramel aromas, sugary caramel and sweet honey flavors, medium bodied with a lightly carbonated almost watery mouthfeel. Finishes with a lingering sweetness, gets better as it warms. tommy8768 (120) - Litlle Compton, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Slightly reddish-copper color. Head evaporates quickly. sweet malt aroma with a slight burnt tinge. Has an odd mix of tastes. First you taste the malt, then has a slight Belgian feel. Almost like a dark belgian ale. A little on the weak side body wise. Not too bad but not great either. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle... Crystal clear amber ale with a small, frothy, white head. Faint, malty nose and flavor with light notes of toffee and caramel. Sufficiently bittered for "near" balance. Medium-bodied and soothingly creamy with mediocre carbonation. Lightly bitter, grassy finish. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2006
Dark amber with a frothy head. Sweet, leathery aroma. The taste begins with some sweet maltiness, but the bitter hit is prompt, ashy and aggressive. Just what I was feeling like today.

Bottle. Poured hazy dark brown color with a minimal froty white head that mostly lasted with minimal lacing. Moderate tart fruity aroma. Medium body. Medium tart fruity flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer did not meet my expectations. brentfeesh (1216) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Thanks to Book_M_Dano for this. 16 oz bottle. Amber pour with a light head. There is not much aroma (spice and malt???). The flavor is a light bitterness (in an English way) with well balanced non-descript malts. The body is creamy with a full and creamy mouth feel…Very boring.

(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, dark, amber golden with an off-white head. Sweetish, roasted malt nose. Quite full-bodied and solid with plenty of malt and caramel. Some hoppiness in the finish where also some alcohol shows. 311007 after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2008
500. Pours a crystal clear dark brown with a loose and sudsy tannish head. Sharply tart nose in a way that seems to come from out of nowhere; raw and overripe and strawberryish, almost kinda grand-cru-ish. Odd, but you could see why they might want to go this way. Figs and dry leaves as well. Medium body, not much character in the way of creaminess or anything. Figs, raisins, and a bit of strawberry on the mid-palate. Neutral finish.

Amber with red tone and small head. Aroma of red berries and fruit. Flavor is malt, some caramel and a hint of roasts
