To me, it's the perfect beverage. I've been drinking it since 1982 when I was stationed in England while in the US Air Force.

The smell is fantastic. A nice deep rich candy malt smell with a slight floral smell. I also get the yeast in there as well. On the first sip I get a nice carbonation and slight hop bite with a very rich malt candy flavor that is out of this world. Its so smooth.. It ends with a tinge of floral bitterness.

I also get a slight salty taste but in the best way possible probably from the hard well water they use in the beer. This is my favorite malty forward beer I've ever had. Maybe I'm biased though because I'm a big organic food advocate and saw organic and instantly wanted to try it. but wow what a difference.

This is definitely not an American beer by any standard. Not to say American beers aren't balanced but this is the best balanced beer I've ever had. Definitely one of my favorites of all time.

A beautiful amber color with a highly carbonated massive white head. This beer is perfect to me. Like nothing I have ever tasted before, a truly unique brew that is incredibly balanced and still complex and interesting to taste. My expierence in pale ales has been Sierra Nevada/West Coast type stuff, and dont get me wrong, I love the brews that come out of the West coast but this is just so different yet still so enjoyable to sip on. Go buy one! Cost me 3.50 at PW Mart in Poway CA, a decent price for a really outstanding beer.
