COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English Session Beer has a delicious floral hop aroma and flavor. A heaping helping of organic caramel malt and touch of organic chocolate malt give this beer its beautiful mahogany color while organic oats from Bob’s Red Mill velvetize the texture. Smoother than an infomertial host at half the price! 13.5°, 30 IBU

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color with creamy head. A good beer, with some malt and caramel, quite dry, correct bitterness. Not exciting but fair. Not an ESB though, just and English Ale.
