3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the source.
Pours a deep golden color with a smallish off white head that shows marginal retention. Aromas of toffee and caramel with hints of earthy citrus. The flavor follows the aroma and adds a bit more of that butterscotch that beer geeks up here seem to like. Medium body and level of carbonation. English inspired, okay brew.

A nice little pale ale, with good balance of hops and maltiness. My only complaint is consistency. Not sure why, but sometime I get one that is a bit too sweet and worty. Still a good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice example of an English style here and happy that it is from a brewery close to home but sadly locally unavailable as of now. The golden pour smells of some grains, toast, clover honey and a tad of grapefruit. Taste is the same, nice malt HQ with a dry, bitter finish to take home. Quite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (341 ml). From czar, thanks! Clear golden with a medium quickly fainting white head, but with intense and beautiful lacing. Aroma is floral with caramel, earthy notes, malt and light sweetness. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with with floral notes, honeyed malt, earthy/mineral notes, caramel and a light to moderate bitter finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. I don’t know how fresh is this bottle, but I love the fact that Golding hops aren’t through the roof. Tasty for the style. Moderately quenching, but still quite enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy dark copper with a small frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of caramel, pale malts, grassy hops and slight woodiness. Taste is grassy hops, caramel sweetness, medium high bitterness slightly on the high side though. Finishes very dry and could be a bit less dry for a better overall beer and flavor. Overall this beer is sessionable and nice to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2012 Pours a light amber. Kind of cloudy with 2 finger head that lingers for quite a while. Good lacing. Scent is of malty sweetness and caramel and some floral hops. Taste is bitter hops and a nice balancing malty sweetness. Not bad. Not thick nor too watery. Well balanced beer.
