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.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Draft at Brewpub. Pours translucent copper amber with a nice off white head. No discernible aromas. Flavor caramel malts and nuts that is countered by a spicy herbal bitterness. Finish is semi-dry with some hints of tea. Needs more sweetness for me. My least favorite of the lineup.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Brown/amber color with a 1+ finger off-white head. Aroma was mild malts, some earthy notes. Flavor was much the same, with the hops coming through adding a nice sense of bitterness. Balanced and quite drinkable.

Great looking and sweet smelling with a nice finish. A nice beer which is easy to drink, but there are other Beth Brews I prefer.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2007
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 (9146) - 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.
