2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a cloudy copper with a very small white head that goes away quickly, and no lacing.
smell is of pear, green apple, and other fruits, floral, some caramel, and a little sweetness.
taste is not that great. apple, pear, some caramel, some malt, grass, and earth. ends bitter with a bad lingering aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bolmber from Malt & Vine. The bottle is filled to within 1/8th inch from the top. Crazy! Pours dark ruddy copper with a decent frothy off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar and herby hop. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, roast malt, something burning spice, and a good dose of herb hop. Goes earthy towards the finish. I have no idea how this connects to Burton Upon Trent, but it’s a very tasty ale!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep reddish caramel, moderate frothy head, tannish, spotty lacing.   Has a slight woody aroma, a little biscuit, some mollases and brown sugar.   Similar tongue, but also a little bit of low mountain shrubbiness, very vibrant in that aspect.   Reminds me a little of Juniper.   Light sweetness, malty, some biscuit, low hops, with some woodsy/mountain shrubby like flavors.   At first I was like WTF, but its growing on me.   Despite being 6.6% it feels a bit warming (fine by me).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean finish.   Had I drank this blind I would have never guessed English Pale Ale as usually they seem somewhat musty and dank.   This is vibrant, fresh, with some bright earthy notes.   Expensive, but enjoyable.

Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a loose tan head. Gorgeously integrated nose of graham crackers and soft brightly acidic citric hops, like oranges and lemons. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty graham cracker and caramel mid palate with a bright lemon and.orange overtone, washing out into a nice crisp bitey finish. Jim knocked this one out of the park.

This is almost perfection, or maybe it is. Some intrigued reading the history of this almost extinct beer style "Burton Ale". I have never tasted anything like this and really want to have more. I heard that Foggy Noggin is planning on bottling this beer, and I will be stocking up on this when it happens. This may be the best beer I have ever had.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Slight hops and strong malt aroma. Earth with a light metal flavor. Love this style this is about as close as it gets to the real stuff. Good malt and hard water flavors.
