      Bright amber-brown, insanely fizzy, massive head. Fruity-toasty aroma. Extremely fizzy, Fruity hops and toasty malt flavor. Mildly bitter finish. Good beer, except for the overcarbonation.

      Red, moderate carbonation, pretty big head. Good fresh British hop nose. Smooth, bitter, tasty. Pretty big beer, eminently drinkable. Finishing bitterness catches in the throat...just a little.

      "Copper-colored" by-the-book. Very fruity nose, but not unpleasantly so. Bitter...very good. Crystal malt in background. Phenomenal. Defines the style.
