COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a British classic combines three different caramel malts to produce the rich copper color and light toffee sweetness in the flavor. Northwest hops impart a spice character and give the beer its signature aroma.

Prufrockstar (691) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Style chasing, from a 12 oz bottle. A bit past its best by date, but not obscenely so. I’m going ahead. Pours clear copper with frothy offwhite head. Malt-forward aroma of toffee, light caramel, and bread dough. Taste: biscuit, toast, very lightly bitter, short crisp finish. Light body, thin texture, dry toast in the finish.

Foxbush (1219) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Christmas 2013 My first beer of 12. The ale poured with almost no head ana a clear amber color. There is a hint of spice on the nose mixed with some malt. It has a dry start and was pleasant throughout. The medium body ale had soft carbonation. The finish was smooth with peppery notes at the finish. The English Style Pale lacks some of the hop bitterness found in an APA.

7/18/2012. On tap at the brewery. Amber color with a white head. Malty aromas with caramel and light hops. Toffee, caramel and spicy flavors, but a little bit too bland to be exciting.

ravenwater (4) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2013 does not count
Aroma: fruity esters include faint raisin, butterscotch. Malt = rich caramels, toffee. Diacetyl. Medium-low earthy, floral hops. Appearance: Medium stand of loosely-bubbled off white foam drops quickly. Coppery amber ale with slow uneven streams of bubbles. Flavor: Butterscotch, toffee, toasted bread. Low earthy & floral hops flavor. Moderate smooth hops bitterness. Clean English yeast character. Fairly well attenuated. Balanced toward malt. No "off" flavors. Palate: Finishes moderately dry. Medium body, some slickness on front of tongue, Medium carbonation. Slightly creamy. Overall: A smooth, luscious, very characterful example of this English style featuring nice caramel malt and fruity depth. I’m not sure why others have rated this relatively low. It is an American brewer’s fine take on a classic English ale (along the lines of Fuller’s London Pride).

Amber pour big head. Aroma of toffee malts burps and peanuts. slight over-Malty but slighty restrainted. I wish hops didn’t make a no show here beacuse the malt half of this beer is delicious. A bit overcarb. Any beer in this style is appreciated by me since it’s a great style.

Hops in the aroma. Malty and nutty, hints of orange peel and caramel. Not too sweet with a decent crispness to the hops in the finish. Not too bitter. A good session ale, apparently only released for 90 days.

dhunter151 (467) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 5, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours amber with a white head that quickly dissipates to a ring. Sweet malt with very little bitterness to balance it out. Not something I'd drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stevoj (1705) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Sweet malt dominates this brew. Golden amber in color with thin white head. Aroma and taste are malt, with some flat malt finish. Different, but not great.

Bottle from Trader Joes. Light copper in color. Nose is lightly sweet with some floral English hop notes. Crisp and clean up front. Mildly sweet with a touch of sweet hoppiness. Finish has a light earthy hop quality. Very drinkable.

12 oz bottle into my dimpled mug from a six pack from Fred Meyer in N.Salem. $6.99 (6) Dark golden with a huge ,thick and creamy/rocky head..its off white..looks cool. aroma is very subdued but what there is is caramel and faint resiny hop. Nice mellow taste, certainly has the English toffee and faint tobacco down well..very little hopping. Kinda nice but just because its "English " style doesn’t mean it has NO hops..could have done with some EKG..but still its a pleasing taste. Palate is fine smooth easy low carbonation. I am kinda upset with this one..could have been a whole lot better..this is really just an amber ale..i know this brewer can do better.
