scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Dark orange, creamy white head. EPA nose of black iced tea that warms to citric notes and hints of toffee brittle. Flavor cuts to the chase with a heavier dried fruit tone thats balanced on touches of caramel. Nicely bittered from start to finish. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, soft bittersweet finish. Sessionable and well done. This and thier IPA rule the roost here...

Pours brown with a white head. Smells tealike with some nice hoppy notes. Tastes lightly hoppy with more tea qualities and a peppery finish.

AirForceHops (3203) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12 oz. bottle thanks to Waterbury. Served at cellar temperature. Nice looking beer. ¼ thick head white head sitting on a mostly clear amber liquid. Nose is lightly fruity with a bit of toffee. Great taste of light molasses, toffee and a fruity hop. Not bitter at all. The finish is very clean and short. Hops do give a light spice in the flavor. This is not your standard amber / English pale. It is really a nice brew that you could have many in a session.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Draft at the Hartford airport. Pretty standard-looking American ale -- dark amber and clean. Crisp and cleanly delivered, mellow malt and caramel. Very, very easy to drink. (#4920, 1/17/2013)

Tap @ the pub. Clear copper color with an almost white head. Nutty malt with a light citrus make up the aroma. Malty flavor with some toasty notes and a mild citrus hop. Dry bitter finish.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - APR 8, 2013
Pours copper, a little hazy with chestnut hue. A fabulous head of soft creamy foam that fell off oh so slowly like a tease. It really does have a come hither look. Sticky lace and thick cap. Smells great with fat malt and light citrus. Lemon and floral are light as a feather on a bread & biscuit caramel malt spine. Malt opens up deep and sweet. Taste is gentle ,clean crystal malt with a good honey and butter sweetness, slightly nutty, alongside hops that are as gentle as a spring breeze with some earth and floral and not quite too bitter. Just enough bitter to lean in on the back palate. It was a touch watery and thin. Drank smooth and bittersweet and had a silky mouthfeel with just a bit of carbonation to tickle the throat. Really good.

fishonmyplane (443) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 23, 2013
A nice, medium-bodied amber ale with plenty of flavor. Hoppier than most pale ales that you would actually get in the UK. A little spicy, nice malt backbone, and a healthy dose of English hops. A solid beer for the style, and a bit underrated on this site, IMO.
