COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English Pale ale may appear ordinary but it’s far from your average brew; despite it’s classic Amber color, it breaks away from the pack by using all American grown fuggles hops for an earthy taste while showcasing it’s intrinsic herbal and citrus flavors. The subtle mixing of flavors creates a combination that’s made this one of our most successful brews to date.

12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A murky amber pour with a fast fading white head; aroma of over boiled malts; watery malt taste, with a trace of citus and some pukey straw. Not good - a drain pour.

DSG (7536) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear amber. Kinda oxidized aroma of malt, caramel, toast and a hoppy hint. Sweetish flavor, somewhat stale, with malt, a bit of toast, a bit of caramel and a mild hoppy (a bit earthy) bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Frank (3220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2014
I might call this more of an American amber but who cares because it’s terrible. It had an amber color with a short-lived head. Its nose is mild and malty and it tastes like unfermented wort and stainless steel. It’s sticky sweet and finishes bitter like a mouthful of turf grass. This is like some jackasses’s first homebrew kit.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed amber that eventually clears with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Indistinct aroma with a few scant notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is laden with overripe orange and caramel. I drank around half the glass and ended up dumping the rest. Not something I’d look to revisit anytime soon.
