A decent red, but something weird about it. Pours a great amber color with a tan head. Smells fruity. Taste is fruity too, but a strange aftertaste. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival

Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark copper with a sllight off-white head. Aroma is very mild and indistinct. Flavor is smooth darkly roasted caramel. Except for a mild fruitiness it hasn’t got all that much flavor and is something of a clone of Newcastle Brown, though better. It does drink really well. Ends more fruity than anything. Quite smooth.

Glad to see E.J. Phair brewing again, although they have have been hit or miss in the past. This had a strong and clean malt, muted hop flavor but overly bitter. Still worked out okay, but not quite there.

Tap: I’ve had English Strong ales I have liked way better. The color is a clear red brown color. Aroma is nothing in particular, pretty weak. Initially, it is a real sweet malty flavor with some weird sour notes following it.
