3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light copper with small but lingering white head which lasts throughout. Aroma is caramel malt, toffee, citrus and leafy hops. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter, fresh and zesty. Compared to all English bitters I have had this comes out better, none of the dank vegetable type taste/aroma. Very nice indeed!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance-- pours a cream colored 1/2" head that recedes slowly leaving decent lacing. Color is amber/copper and mostly clear with abundant carbonation bubbles streaming.
Aroma-- very malty -- smells of slight cinnamon and a moist dough, such as a warm muffin from the oven, a peppery hop spice is also evident.
Mouthfeel-- mostly light, watery, and refreshing. Has a somewhat lager like mouthfeel with a dry finish, although there is some of the fluffiness which should be present in the English Bitter style.
Flavor-- well balanced, hops are in the background and subservient to the malt. Flavors include a peppery and earthy hop spice, a rich bready malt (again like a fresh warm muffin, or a fresh whole wheat bread). There is some caramel and just a hint of cinnamon. This beer is not overly sweet and the aftertaste has a lingering citrus rind bitterness.

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.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bière brune de 4.3 % d’alcool. Elle possède un beau col mousseux au versement. Elle possède un odorat amer. Elle possède une amertume en bouche, légèrement salée, avec un goût de limette en finale et restant dans la bouche. Elle est légèrement fade, sans éclat dans les gorgées suivantes, avec une amertume légèrement décroissante en fin de bouche. Correcte !

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear and copper pour, decent frothy head. Looks like a nice beer. Aroma is light, some grassy hops and a little malt, not much else. Not much too it in the mouth, a bit of hops, a bit of malt, a bit of water. Actually, it’s pretty refreshing ... probably would make a good lawnmower beer, not so much a middle of the winter beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. Bottle: Transparent Golden with a short lived, but decent sized white head. Aromas are very airy, with some light hops mixed in, also get hints of grains and bread. Flavor is nothign spectacular, grains, slight corn, mellow hops. Finishes short and watery, typical to what I would expect. Like most of their other beers, this would make a nice session beer.
