It pours dark brown with a minimal head. The aroma is mild but it offers notes of caramel and some forest fruit. The taste is well balanced but the malts definitely have the upper hand. The sweetness that comes through however is fairly complex, with lots of fruitiness and caramel hints. One of the tastiest English Pale Ales I've had in a fairly long time.

From Hipercor. In Ikea's pint glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x10. Reallt nice aroma to caramel and marshmallow. Taste starts the same but an abrupt bitterness interrupts spoiling the experience. Fine still but a pity because the nose promised much more than the mouth gives.

Draft served too cold at Malt, Newport, RI. Nice clear reddish brown color. Appropriately moderate carbonation with a thin off white head and very nice lacing. Mild, hoppy spice in the nose. Strong hop bitterness and flavor upfront with low roasted and coffee malt sweetness; strong bitterness and hop flavor in the finish. Strong hop bitterness overall, and a tad too much for my taste. IPA fans might enjoy this foray into brown ales, however.

Beautiful strong bitter, clear amber in color with small beige head. Nice peaty, malty aroma, mellow bitterness in taste and palate, hints of caramel and toffee. Delicious.
