COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep red amber colored, full-bodied, with a residual malt sweetness and hoppy flavor. This is an all-around Brew Works favorite. A great Yeungling “Lager” alternative. This british style ale contains a special blend of Cluster, Fuggle, and East Kent Golding hops.

The aroma was lightly earthy with a grassy presence and a light caramel note which presented as slightly toasty. The beer arived amber with an off-white frothy low head which laced the glass. The flavor was malty and nutty with a lightly acidic nature. The tartness was not especially welcomed, but the earthy and light grassy flavors were nice. The beer had a medium body and a somewhat low level of carbonation. The finish was dry with a lasting grainy aftertaste which was not that stellar. Skip it. Pint at BBW.

3fourths (8598) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Draft at the Bethlehem brewery. Nearly perfectly clear with a burnt dark amber colored body and a burnt reddish purple (in low light) layer of cask-like foam with large bubbles floating on top, speckled. Faint nose of buttered toast and slightly sweet berries. More sweet berries and cedar wood tasted, some nuts and pine and burnt white bread toast as well. Sweet and moderately hoppy, I could see drinking a few of these.

Draft. Clear amber color. Light malty roasted aroma. The taste was the same but thin and fizzy on the palate.

cbrixius (136) - Newberrytown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Not a bad bitter on draft at the restaurant. The taste was like most other ESBs in that the dryness and bitterness were upfront, but in the background was a little bread like finish.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2006
On tap at the brewpub, July 2006. Their Cassis Lambic seemed pretty authentic to me and this one was equally, so - very English. In fact, I thought it was the most English-tasting beer I had tried in nearly a month in the US. Attractive, bright copper colour. Strong dusty, robust hop presence with a great earthy bitterness. Chewy, fruity malt too. Excellent balance. Very nice indeed.

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 3, 2006
This one was good. Poured a lighter brown color. Aroma was of malts and fruits. Flavor was very well balanced malts sweet but balanced. Good beer. One of the better i had today.

Nice coppery color with bitter malty nose. Taste is same with slight hops at finish, and somewhat slippery mouthfeel.
