Really impressed with this malty English Ale. Nice amber color with a full, malty aroma. The hops give it a nice presence in the mouth, but this beer isnít all about the hops. The quality malts are what really deliver this beer. They blend so well with the alcohol that you really donít notice itís a 7%er. I canít recommend this enough.

12 oz bottle from 6 pack purchased at Price Chopper in Canton, NY. Pours a very dark amber just barley translucent when help up to light. Thin temporary head. Subtle aroma. Taste is nutty malt up front crispier bitter hoppy finish. Not usually a big fan of English-style ales but this is spectacular! -CB

Minimal head that faded quickly. Poured from bottle. Roasted and peaty nose with a slight sweetness. Medium body nose translates straight to the taste

I simply canít get enough of this beer since it could be found here in Vermont. It packs a punch but they keep going down. Nice mix of sweet maltiness and fine blend of hops which leads to the ability to drink to many of them.

Pours a dark ruby/blackish hue with a khaki colored head. Great chocolate and dark fruit aroma. Taste is of plums and raisin. A great beer no doubt, but still leaves something to be desired.

Pours very dark and imposing. Strong malty flavor with some hops in the background. Seemed stronger in the bottle than when I had it on draft. Seems to live up to its billing as a traditional English style ale.

This is a beer with a great aroma and a wonderful finish. Pours nicely with a great looking head. A roasted, maybe somewhat chocolate flavor with a little bit of hops at the end.
