On tap at Base Camp, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very feint with not a whole lot detectable. Flavour is also quite subtle, with sweet malts and herbal notes. Pretty weak beer with not a whole lot going on here. Decent.

Decent little take on the style. Enjoyed the toasted oak hints, but other than that it was a bit watery for me.

Sampled at the brewpub - Pours golden / dark orange with an off-white head. The aroma has toasty toffee malt, earthy English yeast and maltiness. It is still on the drier side. It has a medium body with light soft carbonation. The flavor start with fairly fruity notes, mild toasted malt and some earthiness. The finish has a distinct English yeastiness.

22 oz aluminum bottle- Pours rusty amber with a two finger head that leaves a nice rocky head with cobwebby lace. Aroma is malty sweet, spicy hops, caramel. The taste is like a hop forward amber, rich malt and dry hops, pretty basic overall, nothing offensive here though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From aluminum bottle purchased at Base Camp. Clear amber color with a lot of tan head. Aroma is grass, biscuit, caramel, and a hint of metallic copper. Taste is definite caramel malt, sweet citrus, and bitter grass. The oak comes through toward the end, which keeps it from being too sweet. Smooth finish that is caramel with a touch of bitterness.
