2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours clear dark orange medium full off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, bread, caramel. Medium sweet taste. Medium-thin body, highly carbonated, long mild bitter finish, too bubbly for me and the flavors just don’t come together quite right. Would not try again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 8-26-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – As the name would suggest the beer pours a nice amber color with a one finger just off white head. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is sweet of toffee and caramel with a little bit of a roasted bready smell as well. Along with these aromas are some lighter notes of earthy nature and a lighter cocoa smell.
Taste – The taste is sweet and bready upfront with lots of caramel and a lightly roasted bread tastes. The caramel takes on a little bit of a toffee flavor as the taste advances. Some grainy tastes come to the tongue a bit later and are joined by some flavors of an earthy and nutty nature more toward the end. Even with the earthy and nutty flavors, the sweet from the beginning remains the strongest of the tastes with it mingling well with the rest to produce a smooth somewhat wee-heavy like flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is medium both in terms of its thickness and creaminess as well as its carbonation level; the combination making for a very easy drinking brew.
Overall – A nice easy drinking, a little on the sweeter more caramel side brew that is quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 mL bottle. The first bad beer I’ve had from these guys. No head, ultra mild aroma, and thin beer. All I can tell is that it’s supposed to be British. Something off with this one. Hopefully just a bad bottle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish orange with a large puffy beige head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is cardboard, caramel, grass. Flavor follows, light sweet, very light bitter, caramel and cardboard. Medium body, high carbonation -- too high. Hmmm, keep trying guys...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is slightly metallic with tropical fruit notes. Taste follows suit but adds some citrus. Flavor is slightly muted and has a weird mustiness in the finish. Appears to be out of date. Average mouthfeel and sufficient carb. Would like to re-rate a fresher bottle.

Pours a nice amber, but no head or lacing. Taste is sugary with some cereal notes. Very watery texture. Hopping is minimal even for a pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks to sevenhokie! Malty, toasty aroma with nutty notes and a little caramel. Pours amber colored with a medium, white head and very little lacing. Lots of malt and toasty notes up front and some faint caramel. Finishes dry, with strong nutty taste that lingers on the palate.
