Odd combination of styles. Healthy initial look and aroma. Pleasant core taste that gives easily. Quite like apple juice, in a way... not that this is bad, in this case.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 Ram Rod, what a bad ass name for a brew. The goat or whatever animal is on the label should have some big ass horns. I didn't find it to be all that bitter. It was fairly smooth.

An interesting sweet malt flavor followed by a lot of bitterness, as is typical for this style.

Heavy honey aroma. Low carbonated honey notes highlights this distinctive beer. First half of beer ends in bitter finish, but then mellows into a smoother brew.

Just not a lot there. I really wanted to like this beer, but it wasn't there. Thin mouthfeel with a hint of sweet maltiness? HMMM.

good and light in taste.............................................

Another good, very 'British' beer. The name gets a kick from non-beer people.

A very pretty glass of beer. Reddish-brown in color. A nice malthops balance, but on the sweeter side. Nothing offensive here, nothing spectacular

Oakes (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2001
Creamy head; slightly hazy; chewy, earthy nose. A fairly candyish, cloying sweetness really detracted from everything else that this beer was trying to accomplish.

A nice ale, struikes a balance between hops and malt. more potent than one would think. An enjoyable english strong ale.
