22 oz. bottle purchased at the brewpub. A very pleasant surprise -definitely reminded me of a good English ESB. Nice blend of malt and hops. Strong creamy lasting . head. Medium body and bitterness with a mildly bitter aftertaste . Best of the Northampton products I’ve tried - wish it were available in a 6-pack.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a hazy coppery color with a small head. Lots of lacing on this one. The aroma is somewhat caramel malty sweet, with hints of roastiness and hops. The taste is malty, slightly roasty and slightly bitter. Nice.

sampled at the brewpub. Amber in color. Grainy and sweet malt in the aroma with some citrus as well. Taste is lightly malty with a dry biscuity character, with some citrus hops in the flavor. Lightly bitter in the finish. interesting bitter.

Cask at Brazen Head. Amber color with a small white head. Grain/cereal malt and citrusy hop aroma. Cereal malt flavor, delicate sweetness, with a nice little orangey tinge throughout. Lively body for a cask ale. Pretty good overall.

This is my favorite beer Northampton makes. It is a nice smooth bitter, almost like the ones in London.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a darker orange amber with an average off white foamy and lacing head. Aroma was fruity with some caramel and roasty malts. On the light side but nice. Flavor of caramel, ,roasty malts, bread, low carbonation and light bitterness.
