Draught from The Pub poured into shaker - Pours amber with a tint of red with a 1 finger white head; Sweet malt, hops, a little spice to the nose; Floral and pine hops, some malt on the initial taste; Not bitter at all; A clean, hoppy, piney backtaste; A very refresing beerthat I enjoyed. The carbonation was a bit heavy to start with, but I think that may have been the lines at the bar. It did die down eventually. Good stuff!

Good pale ale, but too little hop taste compared to their IPA. Part of variety pack.

A wonderfully fresh and hoppy brew. Very drinkable, just perfectly simple. I like it a lot. It isnít overly impressive, but it just works.

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.
