3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Bread, caramel and some light hops. Cloudy copper with a very rich beige head. Caramel, bread and a punchy hop bitterness that fades surprisingly quickly. Nicely done.

Dark amber with off-thick white head. Aroma of caramel, and a little nuttiness. Nice hops and bitterness with a little bit of citrus in the finish. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Muted hop aroma. Pours a deep orangish amber. Sharp bite up front, then some fairly tame biscuity malts, then a ton of hop complexity - very nice and interesting blend of English hops. Finishes very smooth. Nice body to it, while still feeling crisp and refreshing.

Location: Draft at Ginger Man - Houston, 2/11/14
Aroma: Caramel and molasses, some pine, light citrus, grass, and nutty notes on the nose
Appearance: Its has a clear copper pour, with a beige head, and some fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is balanced, light-mid sweet, decent malt flavor, and medium bitter
Palate: This one has a medium body, a touch sticky, with a nice, clean feel
I thought this was a pretty interesting offering. It had some decent balance and plenty of flavor. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clearish amber with a thin off-beige cap. The aroma is malty sweet with some light caramel and crystal nuttiness, with a light touch of grassy pine. The taste is nice and smooth, thorough maltiness with a semi-sweet earthy caramel, with a smooth grassy and pine resin bitterness throughout that really shines during the long lasting finish. But theres this herbal bite throughout that I canít describe other than French fry seasoning. Itís light, but there. Not in any bad way. Just has that bbq salt-ish twang.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours a rich amber hue with a thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel, spice and a touch of citrus. Taste of bitter, caramel, mild spice, and some malts. Almost a tea flavored finish on the palate. Pretty good for this style.

9th February 2013
Very hazy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild fine carbonation. Mild minerals. A little creamy malt, slightly thin. Mild sweet orange and pine. Finishes neutral. Decent and manages to evoke English tangyness!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 12 oz bottle stating best by 9.14.12, so Iím a little late!
Poured in a Great Lakes tulip glass.
Pours copper-brown color with large beige head.
Aroma of malt sweetness almost like a light brandy and bourbon blend with a light touch of smoky spices.
Moderate carbonation and penetrating mouthfeel.
Flavors of big British hops and dark roasted malts. Very bold and flavorful, with tropical fruit concentrate, floral hops, some bitter kava kava root. Overall rich and complex, challenging but tasty for the big beer lover.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good spin on the style. In fact an improvement. Hoppy floral aroma.
Nice dark golden, copper color. Decent fizzy head. Hops bitterness up front with nice malt backbone to support it. Carbonation is high but doesnít detract. Malt has a sweetness found in most English ales. Good offering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle to snifter, pours red/brown/burnt sienna with a pillowy beige head. Nose is piney hops and sweet malt, very pungent and noticeable especially for the style. Mouthfeel is medium light with likewise carbonation, hop bitterness and gin up front giving way to the malt bill on the finish. This is a fine and different brew from a region of the U.S. that is making great beer and I didnít even know it, Texas Toast!
