3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

This may not be my favorite CT beer but I’m not leaving this without saying it may not be my bottle of beer but it shouldn’t stop any beer drinker from trying it

Bottle. Aroma is bready malt with slight fruitiness. Appearance is cloudy orange with negligible white head and minimal lacing. Taste is moderately sweet maltiness with hints of fruit. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and lively late carbonation that bites the tip of the tongue. Finish is mildly bitter and long.

4oz on tap at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Oxford CT. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin white head. Leaves some decent bits of lace. Malty sweet taste, some cooked vegetable. Caramel. Mildly toasty. Medium body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, light bitterness. An alright amber ale. Underwhelming.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy middle amber/honey color, explosive head.
Exhuberant nose, one of the most powerful I remember encountering in a beer, yeasty, hoppy, floral.
Middle body, strong flavor, very high carbonation as can be predicted from the head, asserrive mouthfeel, fairly long palate.
Bitter, more so because of the dryness, good acidity.
Hoppy, more than I expected, but also malty, resiny.
Too dry for the bitterness, so far as my palate is concerned.

Deep fruity aroma. off-white head slims to a thin film on top. Hazy red amber body. Smooth sweet caramel with an earthy fruit taste. Nice use of classic English hops and malts. Dry finish. A respectable brew, I’d happily have more.

Bottle. Great color- a rusty amber. The flavor was not too sweet and not too hoppy. It was drinkable but unremarkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin looking mahogany color body with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma had a mix of caramel malts and done biscuit malts. Maybe a bit of corn. A cherry coke sweetness to it. Flavor had a mix of sweet malts and a generic bitterness which at times seemed astringent. Light palate. Nice beer but not great.
