Notes of swamp grass, dirt, pine, butter, and toast. Definitely some roasted malts in here. To be honest, I’m not very familiar with this style and don’t have much of a reference point in terms of how this is "supposed" to taste. It’s not bad, though. I find it interesting enough. Not really a refreshing beer, and not really a hop or malt bomb. I’m getting a little bit of a taste that a Magic Hat beer in a spring mix pack a few years ago had. There’s maybe just a hint of what you’d get in a Stock Ale, an Irish Red, or an ESB blended together. Also reminds me a tad of some of the Wild Goose (defunct mid-atlantic brewer) beers- similar hops or yeast strain, possibly. Low ABV for an American craft beer, but I think that’s characteristic of English-style bitters.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste sweet, Carmel, bitter. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 0.355l. Clear pale amber color with average creamy, mostly diminishing off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate citrus and herbal hops, berries and mild tropical fruits. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malty backbone, follows light fruity with spicy mouthfeel and light bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Easy drinking bitter, very aromatic with much more hops than in English bitters...

Somewhat refreshing while being kind of malty and kind of bitter. Didn’t have a bad aroma though.

Red/ochre colour. Small head. Close to no aroma, but what I smell is hoppy and ok. Sub-standard, boring bitter taste. Don’t waste your money.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle to glass at room temp. Amber in colour with little head. Slight hop on the nose and malt flavours coming through on the taste. A little too much carbonation to be a ’an English country pub ale’.

The aroma is sweet with nodes of fruit and citrus. Has a hazy light amber color with a small white head. Has a very malty character with hints of coriander and nuts. A nice slightly bitter and fresh finish.

Incredibly malty and hoppy aroma, very sweet. Muddy brown appearance. Really malty, not very ’English country pubs’ to me but better actually. Although slightly surprised by the sweetness, possibly some unfermented malt going on here - not sure. Good, although somewhat simple.

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was the 2nd best one.
