Hoppy, burnt malt nose. Fairly light for a"strong ale", soft edy flavour, rough hoppy bite at the very end, which is the most interesting thing about it, otherwise, give this a miss.

Bottle purchased from a UK store. Part of a 5# four pack. Best by date of "Aug 06" clearly ink jet labeled on the bottle itself.

Golden copper colored brew with interesting wisp of large sized white bubbles. The head still had some staying power and had excellent lacing.

Herbal almost sulfuric hops and a candy, bubblegummy malt aroma.

Sorry, but couldn't get past the vegetal hops and irony cut of the brew. Even my wife said that it reminded her of "bad Singha." Very light malt base.

Though it had just a light tinge of carbonation, this one was pretty watery on the mouthfeel. It finished amazingly clean though, so none of the metallic stuff seemed to stick around.

Not my cup of tea...

a: Pours a clear pale amber/ dark honey. White rocky froth, and a lingering lace
s: Fairly funky/S smell.... some herbaciousness, slight dirtiness / staleness
f: Flavours of fruit & peel, and some toffee sweetness. Some floral notes.
m: Fairly light-weight. Som fizz & tingle at the start, but hollow through to not much of back palate. There is a slight bitterness there.
d: Not a very appealing drink. Perhaps it doesn't travel well, but as this cost me in Sydney $6 US for 500mL, I'll call it straight. Not worth it.

Love the name of this ale, feel as though it was brewed just for me. The colour is a dark gold almost red. Full bodied offering with a lingering almost bitter after taste. Taste was disappointing to me, but am sure it will have some appeal to others that appreciate this style.

Light color, lightly oranged. Half inch of decent head, white, quite beautiful. Clean.
At the nose: uva americana (I don't know how it is named in english. It means american grapes, and i think its scientific name is Vitis labrusca). A lot. Ripe. Flavour of dry white wine, too, and herbal notes. Strange smell.
The taste is quite light, with herbal notes and fruity notes, quite smooth.
It is less interesting than the smell, that is very strange and intriguing. Again vinous notes, of white wine, dry.
Light in body. The american grapes comes back in the aftertaste. It left a feeling like prosecco wine.
Hint of hop and bitterness in the finish.
Very particular. Not exceptional, but interesting.

Serving Type: Bottle.

Appearance: Medium amber with orange hues. Sticky off white head. Good retention and a slight amount of lacing.

Smell: Slight warm malt aroma and not much else.

Flavour: Nice sweet malt flavour which gives way to a subdued but lingering hop bitterness. Slightly floral with a metallic twang on the finish.

Overall: A fairly drinkable ale, slightly over carbonated which leads to quite a 'rough' mouthfeel.

Middle of the pack for this brew. Decent flavor, but nothing exceptional. Aroma, appearance and palate all average. Drinkable, but not worth remembering.

A great example of an english session ale methinks, little stands out in a big way but what is there is definitely enjoyable. For a ale it is perhaps quite light in colour although well out of fizzy lager territory and the head has not stayed around for very long. Subtle aroma, is it the hops? tastewise I find it to be dominated by its finish, which is a sharp but not particularily harsh hoppiness..

I had this beer from the tap in The Monkey's Puzzle in the Bayswater area of London. Honestly, I don't quite remember what it was like and I didn't put notes in my journal for some reason. I had it with a BLT and it was a good combination. It was by no means bad, so that is why a just gave it staight 3's. It was at least average.

Bottled.When poured, the head was small sized, smooth and ivory with fine-small sized bubbles that was mostly lasting.The body was clear with some lively carbonation and an orange hue.The aroma was mostly fruity with a bitter, hoppy and spicy flavor that left an aftertaste.The palate was mostly smooth and this beer was medium-full bodied.This beer also left excellent lacing on the sides of my glass.

A_Burnt copper with a minimal off white head

S_A bit of toasted bread. Slightly metallic

T_Mild bread sweetness up front followed by some grassy bitterness. Aftertaste has a grain like quality.

M_Slightly creamy with a low mild carbonation.

O_My third try from this brewery. Overall I have to say that the beers are pretty much bland without much character. Not bad in any way but not something I would seek out in the future.
