On cask tapped fresh in Orlando. A bitter English ale. Dark golden color with slight haze and zero head. Low carbonation (in style) with a fresh, bitter taste. Low alcohol (in cask) makes for a nice session beer.

Wow it’s been a while since I had this, but this brewery has inspired me to brew my own beer. Maybe one of the best brewers in North America.

Hand drawn 20oz pint. Pours with soapy weak head. Vinegar aromas. Flat and oxidized. Not good.

A nice american ESB. Found this in a Shipyard sample pack. Copper/amber body with a small foamy head. As hoppy as you would like. Did not get a lot of a scent off this beer.

An American version of a English classic. Definitely the same yeast profile! The flavor is quite good, with proper amounts of caramel. I think there are two negatives for this brew ... a little too carbonated and just a tad to bitter in the aftertaste (compared to its English original).

From the bottle: pours rust color. Aroma is faint, not many strong flavors, except malt. Good level of bitterness, not excessive. Good example of the style. Just got back from skiing - could be slightly biased to the plus side.

(Reviewed on 11/25/06) On draught at Flatbreads in North Conway, NH. Brilliantly clear golden ale, served with no head. Little aroma, mostly of barley. Flavor is sweet and malty, tasting pleasantly grainy/barley-like. Overtones of honey. Some alcohol flavor. Moderate bitterness is present from the first sip, and carries through to the finish and lingers with a citrus-like acidity. The two young ladies at my table felt cheated with their beer selections after tasting mine. I think I could drink this all night.

rust color.Nice white frothy head. Lacing was tight. clear in the glass. Not much visible carbonation. in the nose, mild malt, cookie dough. not much else. Taste starts slighty sweet and acidic. Finished bitter. Average length. Palate was a little soft. Not bad.
