Tom Paine is a premium dry hopped bitter named after the celebrated radical who lived in Lewes in the eighteenth century. America celebrates ’Independence Day’ on the 4th of July and in Britain CAMRA has designated July ’Independents Month’ in celebration of Britains independent brewers. This strong pale ale was awarded silver medal at the BBI Awards in 1993.

Inbreak (2490) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
04.08.2014, cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg:
Tiny bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish floral, wet grass, weeds, bark, sour socks, paper, wet grain, almond essence. Taste is slightly dry, hay, light malts, weeds, heather, flowers, paper, grass. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, just boring.

Cask conditioned at The John Harvey Tavern, Lewes, E.Sussex. Amber with white head. There is a rich maltiness to this, fruity, some caramelisation with a sweetish fruitiness. Full palate with a late hit of alcohol notes. Pretty good.

EdKing (2051) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Cask in Harvey’s Royal Oak. Condition is superb as one would expect. Clear rusty chestnut light brown, medium white foam head which dissipates to thin quickly. Nose is ale fruity, caramel, apple chutney spice, raisin, touch of orange liqueur, old antique wood. Taste is ale fruity, caramel, raisin, slight English acidic hop prickle and dash of alcoholic bite.

jackl (5342) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Cask ESB. Deep amber color with a bubbly head that disappears fast. The nose is all about the sweet malts - raisins, citrus, treacle. The taste has floral hops, but my focus is really caught be the sour flavors: dark druits, blackberry, tangy citrus and brown sugar all reveal themselves. The palate is medium, the texture slightly oily. Overall, this is a really nice, complex ESB.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Cask at the Royal Oak, London. Dark orange color. The aromas and flavors of raisins, orange, lemon and toffee. Bittersweet. Nice bitter.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2011
Cask at the Royal Oak, RBESG 2011. Pretty amber color with a solid head. Grat hoppy nose, citrus and minerals. Lovely clean, hoppy, and tasty flavor. Earthy, light malt but great solid hops. Some citrus and grass, and a nice, peppery bitterness.
