12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours a very nice looking reddish amber (clear) with a nice white head, OK lacing too. Aroma of grain, malts and yeast quite faint, some fruit in it too. Taste is malty sweet but it also has a nice bitterness to it, hardly any hops; but overall is a very decent drinkable beer.

On draught at the East Village Grille, this pours amber into the glass with a wispy head that leaves thick suds lacing. The nose is somewhat fruity. Flavors are citrusy with some tart cherry, lots of tannins through the mid-palate, and a nice clean bitter to balance. Light-bodied and semi-active in the mouth, it's an easy quaff. English style prevails strongly here.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Wow...another I consumed at a picnic and was surprised to see I had not rated it previously...probably had upwards of 4 dozen of these in the past decade plus, as it is a ’upper-middle class’ beer at your standard Chicagoland party...pours a standard amber brown...medium whitish head. Aroma is bready/biscuity/doughy...some sweet malt, generally bitter. Flavor is both sweet and bitter...not particularly ’hoppy’ - some caramel notes. Palate is light-medium and this is an easy drinker with a bitter finish...will this blow your mind? probably not, but it is a highly sessionable, well-brewed ale.

Overall this was a fairly ordinary ale. Nothing too special about it. Drank from the bottle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber pour. Cloudy eggshell head with lots of retention and lacing. Aroma is very traditional English ale aroma. Biscuity malt aroma and English yeast aroma. Then becomes more american with earthy floral hop aroma on the back end. Flavor is very similar. Malty, bready, yeasty up front. Hop flavor finish. Very smooth neutral finish.
