Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Relatively clean, with pale malts, mild toasted notes, lighter sweetness, and a mild earthy bitterness. Not bad.

jandd1983 (3192) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. It poured a clear deep amber color with a small off- white head. The aroma was of light malts and esters. The taste was of light malts, esters and just the right amount of bitterness. Nice.

Of all the beers that were brewed to some style this may have come the closest to being true to itself. A lightweight memorable bitter would fit in well with the tons of average casks at small pubs dotting the English countryside.

Aroma / Appearance - A rich caramel base is the color of melted chocolate bars. Calm malt and earthy hops float in the air like a light mist. Iced tea and semisweet chocolate provide some depth but overall this is a simple draft.

Flavor / Palate - Almonds, walnuts, and iced tea refresh the palate. The transition is mildly bitter and soon fades in the back of the throat. A decent amber / ESB is fairly mundane and something to pass the time over lunch.

SDalkoholic (2237) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On tap @ Eastlake location: I took very little notes about this beer and thatís a sign to me that it wasnít that important. Appearance was a dense mahogany color that looked as though it did have some artificial coloring and was able to create a nice frothy head. The flavor and aroma both seemed to have more hops present then malts, but the flavor was nicely balanced and seemed to stand out to me as a decent amber ale.

I didnít think this was that great so I ordered some of the Double up XX II PA in it to make it better.
