On tap at Milly's Tavern. Deep copper pour. Little to no head. Light webs of lacing at the top of the pint glass. Nose of earth, moss, yeast and some piney hops. Taste is most definitely bitter. Nice malt character, followed by a nice hoppy bite. Dry finish. One & done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft @ brew pub. Deep amber with thin white head showing decent retention. Nose is a pleasant mixture of oak, sugar and caramel. Brewer used English malts giving some toffee. The hops also have a English feel, very Earthy. Somewhat balanced. Itís a good brew if you like a English Ales. Nothing bad to report, I just need to be in the right mood to drink an English Ale.

Tap at Millyís in Manchester, NH. I see Iím the outlier here, but I didnít really care for this one. Probably more "not my style" than anything else. Copper pour, small white head. Bready and floral with a hop kicker. It was this particular hop flavor I wasnít a fan of in this one.

Dark amber pour with a clean body and off white head. Huge nutty caramel and hints of popcorn kernel lead to pronounced roast and hints of peanut skins. Medium body with average carbonation and a roasty finish.

On tap in a pint glass. A - Dark amber body. Two finger off white head that sticks around for a while. Modest retention. S - Piney English hop varieties, caramel and toffee malts, a touch of citrus. Slightly metallic in finish. T - Similar to the nose. Piney hops with just a touch grapefruit, caramel and toffee, some light diacetyl and mineral notes on the finish. Coating mouth feel with decent carbonation. O - This was my first "Burton Ale" and Iím having a hard time distinguishing it from a standard english style IPA. Either way its pretty tasty and easy drinking, albeit a bit boring.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a light brown with a thin off white head. Malty aroma with some earthy, grassy hops. More earth and grass in the flavor. Some mineral. Slightly sour. Moderate palate.

Pours a burnished copper color with a minimal off white head that shows little retention or lace. Smells of earthy piney hops with a smattering of toffee and caramel. Sweet sticky malt aroma with just enough hops to keep it from cloying. Taste follows the smell really well and adds a bit of a buttery component as well as a bit of a mineral bite. Light to medium body, medium to high level of carbonation with a sticky bubbly mouthfeel. Decent English style brew.

growler-pours a rich tan head that laces and hazy amber color. Aroma is sweet medium malt, berries. Taste is medium malt-caramel, nutty, roasty, equal metallic/bitter/English hops-also some north west hops comes through. Doesnít quite balance initially. About Ĺ way through the first one, became a nicer/better balanced EPA with some bitter/citrus hops. The finish is long with metallic English hops and dry. Occasional. OK carbonation.

[tap @ the brewpub] Nice crisp hop aroma-- wow, itís great to finally smell a beer in Millyís.. Cloudy amber/copper color, with some nice lacing. Toasted malt flavors with some nice bitterness, a blend of citrus and earthy hops. Malt character is very distinct. Mildly sweet finish, with some nice finishing hops.

growler from the brewery. Amber/Copper in color with a medium white head. Aroma is floral hops and caramel/malts. Taste is floral hops, caramel and malty, light to moderately bitter, you can definitely taste the hardness of the water. Finishes lightly malty and moderately bitter. Havenít had many burton ales but enjoyed this one.
