COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not just about the best beer, but the best places to enjoy it. Nestled in the woods near Spring Green you’ll find American Players Theatre. There, the audience can kick back and marvel at the genius of Shakespeare brought to life. APT and its festive, open-air venue have inspired us to craft an elegant, light-bodied and "proper" English Ale. Furthermore Proper is a toast to APT, a Spring Green gem.

Hazy amber orange. Nose of herbal citrus hops, caramel malt, candy, and light toasted biscuit. Flavor is fairly traditional ESB, with orangey citrus hop bitterness and caramel malt. Lingering herbal citrus and caramel malt. Bigger body than expected.

Furthermore calls this an English style but it tastes distinctly American to me. It is a slightly hazed orange color with a relatively long lasting white had. The noise is slightly hoppy with some fruity notes from the yeast to back it up and a bit of toffee-like malt as well. It diverges from the English style once tasted. For staters, it is highly carbonated for an APA let alone an English pale. This, on top of a touch of acidity which brings out some tangerine notes, really just screams American asked to me. It’s actually a rather nice hybrid though and I think it works rather well.

Poured a light amber with light head and lacing. Aroma was primarily of bready malts with a twinge of fruitiness there. Taste started out malty and caramel and finished very light on the hops. Palate was fairly good. Overall, a pretty decent English ale by the folks @ Sandy Creek.
