tasted at Blacksburg Brew Do - well balanced on the palate with hops and malt present, interesting addition of cascade hops to what would otherwise taste like a traditional english IPA

Orangey brown pour from bottle. Bit of hops and a little malt but otherwise uneventful.

Tasted on tap in a mini Willybecher glass at the 2015 Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival. It poured a clear deep amber colour with beige foam and lace. Very traditional English Best Bitter traits all-around: definitely malt-forward, caramelly, hint of toffee with nice citrusy and earthy hop balance. Medium body and carbonation, mineral complexity in the mouthfeel (chalk, gypsum?), lingering malty aftertaste which eventually finished with a dry snap. Pretty good stuff.

Pours a darker orange gold, almost brown color with off-white head. Loght pine, citrus, and bready cereal notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes balanced.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 Pours copper with white head. Citrus aroma with biscuit malt and floral spice. Flavor is dry caramel malt with biscuit notes followed by citrus & floral hops. Really nice English pale ale. Could throw a few of these back.

Pours a clear copper with a thin soapy head. Weak hop aromas. Flavor is a bit dull as well, some hop bite but very weak. Not impressed.
