COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back in merry olde England, the roadside inns were abuzz with banter and smiling glances from buxom barmaids - barmaids who, we might add, brewed the ale they served. In their honor, our brewers treat each batch of Dundee English-Style Ale they brew with the same love and care as the barmaids of old, combining pale and caramel malts with Columbus and Cascade hops for a malty, slightly sweet finish. Now, if only they’d stop dressing like barmaids...

fidelis83 (1901) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2012
Slightly hazy gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma of bread, grain, planty grassy and slightly skunky hops. Flavor is toast, doughy bread, biscuit, dishwater, citrus, grass and a little skunk. Light vegetal notes build on the back of my tongue as I drink, cabbage-like, Light fairly neutral body with a moderate carbonation. Tastes a little off, but I’ve had worse.

Transfer from BA review on 5-19-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden color with a light haze and a billowy white head. The head fades fast to give a lighter amount of lacing. Smell – The aromas are relatively light, but consist of a bread and caramel aroma. Taste – A malty flavor meets the tongue. A little bit of caramel sweetness is present up front and intensifies as the flavor moves toward the middle. The breadiness forms a base but toward the middle the caramel starts to fade as a lighter yeasty flavor begins working its way into the tongue. This flavor remains mild and mixes with the bread and a very light citrus flavor at the end which bring the taste to its finish. Mouthfeel – Medium to just above medium in body with a average level of carbonation. The body suits the abv and malty flavors well. Not bad for the style; it’s very drinkable. Overall – Not too bad. The beer is easy to drink, has great price, and has a good flavor without being too high in abv. A good session.

Pours a light amber with a decent head. Malty and caramelly. Decent beer but wouldn't go out of my way for it.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 10-19-2011. This bottled beer pours a small, smooth, fizzy white head with a long retention, yellow hazy body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel, bready malt, crisp, light hops, and sweet. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter, caramel, bready malt, and lightly hoppy. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this is a medium bodied beer. This beer is easy to drink even though it does not have a lot of character to it. It has no WOW factor for me and is not on my want to drink again list.

queenholly (2827) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle. Slightly fruity barley malt aroma. Hazy deep brassy gold with a moderate off-white head, nice lacing. Fruity barley malt and light grassy flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall a little light, but not bad at all and very easy to drink.

TATE (285) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark gold color with a thick white head. Lots of carbonation, almost seems as there there may be some wild yeast. Aroma of wet grass or hay. Not much body, a faint plastic taste comes through. Finishes clean and crisp but no that good overall. Not sure if I got an old one or not.

finn1918 (192) - Georgia, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a weak head that leaves relatively little lacing. Stale malts, grassy hops, and metal aroma. Taste follows suit. This is a decent easy-drinking beer for the price, but a poor example of a pale ale. Reminds me an awful lot of Foster’s take on the style. Worth a tick, but not worth seeking out.

Bottle. Hazy orange pour with a smaller white head. Stale malt on the aroma. Crisp palate but light. Slightly metallic taste.

Westmeister (1650) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours slightly unclear orange/brown with medium soapy white head. Aroma has toasted grains, light sweet fruity, caramel, earthy. Taste reveals medium sweet toffee and again hetting a hint of fruitiness, grains. Below average.
