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.

Tap. Pours clear amber, small beige creamy head, great lacing. Aroma is caramel and cardboard. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, caramel, bready. Better than it smells. Medium body.

On tap at brewpub
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 (2200) - 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.

Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Oggiís in Garden Grove, CA. Appearance is gold with rich white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is light in both malts and hops, a bit of hay as well. Taste is decent, becomes more flavorful as it warms up, Amarillo hops shine, backed with bready malts. It didnít taste good at first, growing on me a bit.

Pours deep amber with nice malt and toffee notes. These same notes show even deeper during the mouthfeel. Nice smooth finish.
