COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Vintage Ale with an aroma which incorporates spicy hop notes with rich fruit character and leads on to a very full malty, fruity, sweet palate which has a surprisingly clean finish coupled with a matching bitterness.
I have handcrafted this beer from the finest Fuggles, Target and Super Styrian hops, Maris Otter malted barley and of course, our unique yeast to create a truly extraordinary unique brew. - John Keeling, Brewmaster

bhensonb (10796) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 15, 2008
No. 143619. Aromas of roasted malt and floral hop. Not bad for a green beer. Rich coppery amber color and a white head that went down immediately. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Roasted caramel/toffee flavors, with a bit of heat and floral/grassy hop. Hints of cacao. Finish is dryish, floralish and delicious. Got one aside for a few years down the road - if I can hold off.
