UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Bottle: The sweet malti aromas are salivating though the tasting experience was mediocre. Donít get me wrong, I like this beer and would buy it again... it is a nice English bitter style, but comparatively to other great beers, this one lacks complexity. The aroma and taste are great but the beer could use some extra body, perhaps another fermentation to take it to the next level. Again, itís a good beer with the potential to be great with minor adjustments, one that I recommend.

Hazy golden amber ale with a thick creamy white head. Light caramel malt with floral hops. In mouth, a crisp maltwith floral piney hops, rather short, but good. Trade with Piscator. Thanks Kris.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Rating this from memory after drinking several while in Chicago recently. Thought it a nice and decent APA with an alright amount of hoppiness and fruit flavours. Pretty standard, but when somebody plunks down a bottle of this and a bottle of Old Style on the table....well, the choice should be fairly obvious.

Bottle. Tawny brown body with a lasting foamy head. Caramel, low-medium hops, dried apple chips, light nutmeg, some canned corn juice, very good fruit flavors that are kept in check very well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber with a thin white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma of caramel malts with some hops. Flavor of caramel malt with some ale esters and a slight hop background. Malt and hops are basically balanced, but only because neither really stands out. A bit thin on the palate. Another run of the mill APA which leaves no real impression.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Fresh berry malt aroma. Medium amber color with small head. Lightly sweet malt flavor with light hops finish. An easy drinking beer - a bit light on the hops for the style but still very good.
