Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2007
This is a tasty, satisfying, solid ale. It is amber with a thin offi-white head that dissipates steadily. The aroma is malty grain, yeasty dough, and a hint of sawdust and pine. The taste has both malt and hops noticeable, with some sweetness and bitterness, a somewhat bitter finish before a nice grain aftertaste. The flavours improve and rellow blend together nicely after the first couple tastes and itís great to drink over time. Ultimately, itís a solid, smooth, tasty, easily drinkable beer with a solid ale character. The taste is similar to a good English bitter but with a slightly less rich/complex malt character and slightly more hop character.

pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2007
10-19-07 bottle. Malty, doughy metal aroma. Deep amber color with decent head. Very carbonated. Medicinal metallic finish which coats the tongue. Drinkable but not my favorite.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2007
Draft Ė Dark amber with a creamy white head. Aromas were of soft toasted caramel malt with faint notes of citrus and chocolate. Light citric hops bitterness balances over lesser notes of toasted chocolate. Light bodied, medium carbonation, soft malty finish. Drinkable, but just not a whole lot going on here...

Consumed a few BFBís of this at Gin Ricks. A nice, mildly hoppy pale ale, very drinkable. Smooth, lightly bitter, good stuff.

holdenn (2108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2008 12 oz bottle pours an amber with a tall white head. Toasted malts, caramel, and toffee in the nose. Similar flavors with a touch of nuts, grapefruit citrus, and pine. Sessionable. A nice example of an English Pale Ale as Goose Island has done with many of their early balanced English styles.

dankman (255) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Simple, easy to drink weak ale. Not a huge amount of flavor besides hints of carmel and a hint of bitter in the finish.

Bottle sampled. Pours a dark copper color with a beigh head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, and english hops. Flavor is lightly sweet and very smooth with caramel malts and some citrus with a light bitter hop finish.
