COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber English-style ale that has a nice balance between hops and malt. It's the most popular of our beers and the most versatile in terms of pairing with food or people.

Draft. Pours clear amber with nice white head. Nose is lots of bread. Taste is pine and malt. Very dry taste and aftertaste. Okay.

12 ounce bottle. Malty orange body. Big hits of citrus in body. Light hops with some caramel. Ratings are too low on this one. Nothing wrong here.

Drank it with Erik at Solas Irish pub. Drank it out of a bottle. Aroma has light citrus notes and a vague graininess. Itís good but too light, a little bit watery. But itís decent enough to order another one.

Sessionable beer. Doesnít jump off the page but enjoyable. Some sweetness up front, very light on the his for a pale ale. Color is a nice amber, head disappears quickly.

Coolmac (51) - SOUTH AFRICA - APR 13, 2014
Nice floral aroma. Pours a cloudy orange with decent head that sticks around for the duration. Lovely sweet malt on the tongue with a good fruity hop flavour finishing with a strong bitterness. Awesome beer.

Deep amber color. There is no notable hop aroma. Some malt in the nose. The beer has a good buttery texture but the hop bitters come out before the hop taste.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Bit disappointed to find this isnít the brewpub version retired in 2007- that would have been an exotic find on the shelves of Pioneer supermarket. Deep coppery brown- not pale- with patchy slick of foam. Aroma of rust, Weetabix, minerals, Allsorts and Hovis biscuits. Said flavour with hints of wet dough, Dolly Mixtures, Allsorts and vaguely spicy (aniseed) notes. Slightly saline finish with retronasal seawater, malt loaf and rust. A respectful imitation of a dull brown English bitter.

pinkzambia (1436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Clear copper color with a white ring head. Aroma of perfumy hops. Tinny balanced hop malt backbone with a sharp but malty finish. Tangy bitterness in the aftertaste. Itís ok, but doesnít compare to something like Sierra Nevada APA.

gripweed57 (611) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2014
12 ounce. can. Slightly hazy amber color. Decent sized rocky white head. Fragrant faint caramel malt aroma. Mild toasted malt flavor has hints of bread and black tea. Nicely balance subtle citrus hops. Slight nutty malt in finish. Pleasant but average.
