10oz on tap at Cock & Bull in Hyde Park for $4.25. Clean, toasty flavor up front, mild earthy hop. Touch of caramel. Pretty on-point. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet, nice dry finish. Great kind of herbal and toasty malt aftertaste. Half hazy amber color, with dark particles suspended within. Bubbly off-white head, leaving good webs of lace initially, but it fades to a minimal ring with some bits. Lighter to medium body. Light carbonation, kind of crisp. Mild slick texture. Mild hint of butter, not noticeable until the end. Very nice english-style bitter. Complemented my burger & fries perfectly.

Clear copperish Amber with a thick light beige foamy head. Toasted English muffin on the nose--classic English bitter aroma. Smooth and clean flavor with some gentle toast, gentle earthy hoppy flavor, and a clean malty body. A bit clean overall and colors inside the lines a bit.

On cask @ Rogue Public House - Portland. Orange in color with a small layer of white foam. Bread and toast on the nose. Pretty floral, a little grassy, and some tea. Decent enough nose. Nothing really terribly exciting about the flavor, but it’s got some good hop character and a substantial maltiness. Big bread and toasted malts. Pretty decent stuff.
