COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional Fuggles and Kent Golding hops (imported from England) dominate the flavor of this English style pale ale. British grown Maris Otter barley lends a round and smooth malt flavor. Truly a classic style.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
August 18, 2010 - 660ml bottle courtesy of jerc & mabel shared with blankboy and garthicus. Slightly hazy gold with a hint of amber and a smallish off-white fizzy/foamy head. Aroma of cereal grain, that "red" rye sharpness, a hint of alcohol, so dry, slightly acidic herbal bitterness. Solid flavour - tangy, grainy, not boozy, slightly pungent vaguely floral bitterness, and a whisper of some sort of overripe fruit (but not in a bad way, just acidic and sharp). Average body, lively mouthfeel, quick-finishing, leaving a slightly dry, herbal aftertaste; simple and pretty well executed.

blankboy (6450) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o j&m. Pours a cloudy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting white head. Pretty decent aroma, a good amount of floral hops, along with caramel malt and fruit. Flavour hops, fruit, caramel malt a mild bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

garthicus (2779) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 19, 2010
Thanks to Jerc & Mabel. Appearance: golden, ever so slightly cloudy. Aroma: nicely bitter, slight pine hop nose with the tiniest amount of sweat. Flavour: hops at first, moving onto pine, a tiny hint of mango, salt, long dry bitter finish. Not bad.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2010
2010-06-30. Crisp golden yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Flavour has modest hops and bitterness throughout, mild underlying malts with light caramel and toasty malt touches. 6+ Mild aroma, light fruit, something that probably is not the banana I thought I smelled, light grains. 6+ Average palate. Decent but just okay. On tap at Alderwood Bistro, Sequim

22oz bottle acquired in a trade. Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a huge sized off white head. Aromas of citrus, some cardboard, and toasted grains. Tastes of light caramel, citrus, some breadiness, and the same cardboard that was present in the aromas.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2008
Nitro pour. Golden and clear with a big foamy head. The aroma is odd funky hops, weed, and cat box. A touch of sea salt too. The flavor is a little sulphuric with some ale yeast sweetness and a funky hoppy finish. Weird beer.
