Light copper-orange colour. Fruity, British yeast aroma (Wyeast 1048). Very similar to Fullers London Pride. Medium bodied. The British malt balances nicely with the fuggles and goldings. I like.

This is a solid amber ale. A good balance of caramel and hops. Nice clean flavor with a pleasant finish. Good color and head retention.

This brew serves up rich malt and hops with both barrels. Mildly hopped, and malty-sweet. Very nice!

Itís surprising how sometimes you can smell and taste a beer and it reminds you of something entirely different than beer. When I sniff this, I get a big whiff of freshly brewed sun-tea brewed on a hot summer day and poured over ice in big cube filled pitcher. Picture this: a big copper tea colored ale with a thin frothing. Even the taste, I could swear they steeped the wort with tea leaves. Give this to someone and tell them itís iced tea beer and theyíll be blown away. Interesting amber, I just canít get over the tea thing.

Great pale ale. Sour/sweet apple aroma and taste. Not too much bitterness. Malty aftertaste. Pretty copper color with a nice head.

I had this stuff just after hiking up Half Dome in Yosemite, so take this rating with a gain of salt. I canít comment on the appearence because it was by the bottle and I did not have a glass... Anyway, it was kind of a heavy tasting beer with a malty aftertaste and not too bitter. Overall it made the end of 18 miles and a 5000í accent much better...
