Made with the finest English malts and hops. Maris Otter and crystal malts give this rich mahogany ale mouth watering caramel maltiness.The English Challenger and Kent Golding hops impart herbal flavors and aromas that finish gloriously smooth and mellow.

Sampled at the brewery, then poured two more full beers! Pours a clear reddish gold color, moderate head, some lacing. Nicely balanced malt sweetness and hop bitternessred gold, nicely balanced malt sweetness and hop bitterness. There are toasted grains and caramel flavors and a bit of citrus hop bitterness. Very drinkable!

Keg @ WoB, C’ville. Sort of hazy amber color with a creamy head. Points off for appearance. Nose is very sweet. Caramel apple and toffee. Taste is pretty strongly hopped for what it’s supposed to be. Tree sap and leafy green bitterness. Caramel malt. Pain au chocolate. Medium body, soft carbonation. Meh.

Copper nose, with a little honey. Clear copper, medium yellow head, minimal lacing. Less metallic on the palate, dark honey and dried leaves are detected. A tad fizzy, especially for the style.

32oz growler I picked up from Lost Rhino when they did their Apocalypse Ale tap takeover. Pours a hazy, light brown with some thin, white head. Nose is malty, some orange peel, some diacetyl, cracker. Flavor is the same, a little boozy actually, lemon rind, pear, malt. Wet finish. A touch messy.

Aromas of caramel, berries, and earthy hops. Clear red-amber with a mostly fading off-white head. Dry, malts are well balanced with a tight bitterness. Light-medium bodied, well carbonated, very smooth, and finishes clean.
