3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep gold color with a foamy beige head that left sticky lace. Melted toffee and hops in the nose. Lots of bready malts, caramel sweetness, and a wide, diverse, and unidentifiable hop bitterness that pervades the entire thing. Some citrus, apricot, apple sauce, and orange juice flavors. Interesting beer.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours richly honey colored with a tall, lasting froth. Superb lacing with a full creamy canopy. Aromas of malted biscuits and a pinch of citrus. medium full nectar with good carbonation creating a fine, cotton soft texture. This is an outstanding specimen. Balanced malt to hop ratio brings out a wonderful citrus rind spiced biscuit laden maltiness. The finish is balanced with a lingering mild aspirin burn. Overall: itís balanced and delicious with freshness at itís peak. Theres a very subtle fruitiness that reveals itself as it warms. Delicioso!

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear light amber with a light caramel malt and hop aroma. The easy going caramel malt and hop flavors are kind of underwhelming, but itís more flavorful and crisp than their Levity Amber, so thereís that. Itís got a decent lightly bitter finish and is easy drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Fresh, flowery, fruity hop aroma with doughy, biscuity, faintly sweet malts in the background and hints of cedar. Medum copper color, clear, with a fine, lasting, creamy head and densely spotted lace. Hoppy, lightly citric, bitter and fruity flavor, progressing toward a balanced finish as some toasty, lightly sweet maltiness appears to mingle with the green, leafy hop and light, almost pear-like fruitiness. Finely effervescent and refreshing palate with a medium body.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, BB 11/16/08. Poured clear medium orange with a short cap of beige head. The aroma was quite nice.. juicy grapefruit and English toffee with deeper-rooted notes of earth and pine.. transitioned to darker toffee sweetness around the middle. The flavor began with a mixture of medium-skinned fruits with toffee.. caramel washing over the middle not long afterward.. sweeter yet over the back, with low-to-moderate earthy bitterness surrounding.. OK balance, and a decent flavor profile. Light-medium bodied on the palate with lower carbonation.. sweet and sour contrasts on the finish. Nice enough to drink, but meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chill hazed amber body with a small offwhite head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy hops with a pine and rind edge. Taste features some toasty caramel balancing out the earthy and pine hops. Softer fruits emerge as it warms. Doesnít seem very English but a solid and easy drinking pale ale here.
