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

I might call this more of an American amber but who cares because itís 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. Itís sticky sweet and finishes bitter like a mouthful of turf grass. This is like some jackassesís first homebrew kit.

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 Iíd look to revisit anytime soon.

Pours a medium amber color with a creamy head. Aromas caramel, slight bread, slight fig and slight grass. Flavors of light caramel, slight toffee, slight spruce. Lightly sweet and medium bitter. From the aromas it seems to be a sweet malty beer, but the flavors reveal its true bitter color without much of sweet or malty bite.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Appearance: The body has a very nice deep orange amber color with good clarity and some visible carbonation. I poured it aggressively down the middle of the glass in this produced are very tall and thick head. It?s head holds on well and makes some slick lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is all about the malt. It has deep malty nose with notes of caramel, honey and whole wheat bread. In the background it get just a slight hint of herbal like and floral hop notes. Taste / Palate: It has a light to medium body with a smooth softly carbonated feel and the flavor is sweet and malty. Notes of toffee and freash bread crust are up front and present throughout. A very mild hop note adds some balance and some very mild bitterness in the finish. Notes: I my opinion I get more of an English Mild Ale feel in this beer vs a Pale Ale. Either way it has an English subtlety that I like in this beer.

mansquito (3576) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Hudson Project Music Festival (overpriced): Pours brownish amber with a creamy head. Toffee malts and light hops in the aroma. Slight bitterness and toffee sweetness throughout. Not bad, but very simple. And it ainít even from Buffalo.

Pours dark amber, translucent, minimal head. Caramel malt nose. Taste is a diacayl bomb. Cardboard, toast, faint flower hops. Medium body with very light carb.
