Quite malty aroma. This is pretty nice. Malty with a solid aftertaste, mostly of a light hop and grassiness. Decent.

this is an earthy brew indeed. bright and mildly hoppy this english style ale is velvety and nicely sweet with a decent malt backbone. hop aroma somewhat piney and well recessed this is the type of brew to sit back with and perhaps follow up with a honkers ipa.

12 oz bottle. Golden copper and clear with decent creamy off white head. Aromas of citrus. Orange and tangerine. Some mango. Flavors were more malty but still domiated by hops. Not as fruity though. Some earthiness, and toches of grass. Not bad for a style Iím not a big fan of.

A decent beer. Had some maltyness and very little hops. Smooth, not too special, but didnít suck.

Its a good beer. I had a couple for the holidays. It is more malty than hoppy, but the hops character balances the taste. Smooth, crisp, and delicious cold.

Fukito (1018) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle @ Microbar, november 07. Clear, light copper color with a medium, creamy, white head. Caramel, cereal arome with some toffee notes. Caramel, toffee flavor with some nutty notes and an almond finnish. Medium palate, a lot of chewy malts going on but a bit troubled and without harmony. Rather short aftertaste. A nice, dark, malty pale ale.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pours a golden amber color with a thick frothy head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, little bit of citrus fruit, and grain. Light caramel taste with a slight bitter finish. Drinkable brew.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Pale golden pour; lazy white ring on the rim. Watery honey and maple syrup aroma with light biscuits and sweetcorn. Lots of tepid wheat grass and green tea bitterness in the somewhat timid flavor; some light, zesty lemon notes and wet foliage layering an earthy mulch underneath. Apples, pears, and other easy to ignore fruit flavors lend a bit of liveliness here and there. Sparkly, light bodied and very gracious on the palate; laid back and comfortable. Muted sweetbread, biscuity yeasts and soft dirty hops in a fairly lasting finish; pleasant. Cold and highly carbonated itís nice, but not especially fulfilling; cask treatment at room temperature might coax out the lovely british character that seems to rest somewhere in the background here and allow it to really shine.
