Its a lovely take on the British Bitter and features a nice, rich caramel body with a kick of British hops to round it out; 5.9%abv.

On tap sampler from the restaurant in February--once again, no head as the brew reached the table, but the drink left a lot of lacing. Nice toasty and caramel aroma with the taste following in the same manner with some citrus. Nice british pub feel (you know what I mean) finish.

Pours a muddy mahogany with sparse yellowish head. Aroma is very faint toasted malt and butterscotch. Taste is biscuit, butterscotch, tannic graininess, and some harsh hop bitterness on the back of the tongue. Body is medium and creamy with low carbonation and a tannic puckering finish. Overall, underwhelming.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2012
This poured a murky light brown body with a respectable tan head and left a goodly amount of lace in its wake. It had a dry, woody malt nose accompanied by some floral and earthy hops. The flavor was toasty malts, a touch of orchard fruit, and a flowery, earthy bitterness. It had a fairly dry, moderately bitter finish. Not bad.

Growler shared on Christmas. Pours hazy amber with otff-white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, toffee, light citrus, and bit of hops. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel, touch of citrus, and some hop bitterness in the finish. Nice ESB and good session beer.

TheAlum (6944) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask pour at Jake Melnicks Charity Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed almost murky copper brown hue. A frothy tannish head sits atop, laces well, and sticks around as a bigger layer. Aromas are crisp cereal and biscuity malts, some toast, gentle caramel, and dry floral hops on the nose. A gentle spice, fairly simple. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering caramel and toast up front, biscuits and a dryness. Shows a decent dry hopping, decent bitterness and dry toast grows, moving into some gentle sweetness and lingering carmelized malts. Gorgeous pour, fairly drinkable with a distinct dry malt and hop bang into the finish that makes it pretty drinkable overall. A gentle touch of florals and grass, dry spice, lingering dry and toastiness keeps away the hopping. Surprising beer here with some great cask touches.
