COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask & Bottle Conditioned;
Long Leg is a traditional, full flavoured, golden ale exclusively brewed using Fuggle hops, both in the copper and as a late addition to give a distinctive, late copper hop flavour. The name honours the tradition of hop picking on stilts in order to harvest the tall crop.

Poured a dark copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma and Taste of floral earthy hops, some citrus fruity, caramel malt and mild grass notes. Palate is a medium body, light carbonation, mild sweet bitterness on the tongue. Finish is sweet caramel malt, fruity with some yeast, grassy notes with some earthy floral hops bitterness. Aroma and taste seem a bit weak but improve somewhat as it warms up. Overall not the best in class but a good drinking session ale.

Pours clear, brown-gold with a short, off-white head. Scent is an earthy caramel. Taste is woody, nutty, with a smooth tea bitter. Nicely balanced hops. Closer to a hopped, brown ale....enjoyable.

Has a similar aroma to an ESB/bitter, a mix of fruit/malts and a tinge of hops. The flavor is caramel/toffee malts, a hint of earthiness and a decently hoppy finish. Similar to a bitter, pretty decent.

The color is a clear bright orange. Icy lace sitting at the top. See through. The lace sets it apart. The smell is heavy bitter (fuggle) hops, that have that distinct chlorine aroma. Smells good. The hops are of the bitter, Euro variety. The hops are bitter, but softened. Sweet brown ale flavor. Lots of added sugars. The sweetness is a bit off-putting. The hops are more apparent as it warms. Sweetness subsides; toffee and molasses come out. Thick and a little chewy/chunky feel. Too sweet of a brown sugar taste. The bitter hops are not a balance, just the opposite extreme. Drinkable, not a crave-worthy brew in my book.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Light amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, light hops. Flavor is more malt than hops. The Friar Tucks in Peoria I sometimes get beer at tends to sell old stock. No date, but looks like I was foiled again. It had a little of-taste at the end.

Headbanger (3275) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2009
16.9 oz bottle 10/2/09 (Sam’s Wine & Spirits)-Pours a slightly hazy copperish amber with a big off white head. Aroma of hps, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a bit of dryness and slight metallic. This medium bodied brew goes down smooth and it quite tasty. Nice beer.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2009
Poured a light copperwith a thin white head. Aroma was a bit hoppy, more on the pine side of things than the citrus. Flavor was god. A bit malty, a bit hoppy, balanced, but not overwhelming. Decent beer. Nice easy drinker.
