Bottle... Slightly hazey amber pour; thin tan head. Nothing overpowering in the aroma, mostly roasted malts and some piney/herbal hop notes. Flavor is quite good...robust and malty, but not sweet. Toasted malt aftertaste with nice hop bitterness for balance. Crisp and refreshing while still full-bodied. Doesn’t really scream "English Style" to me, but as an "Amber Ale", it’s good.

Lots of caramel malt and sweet flavors. Not overly complicated and none of the flavors are over the top. Very nice and balanced. An enjoyable beer.

Bottle: Slightly hazy amber with a thick, light tan head. Nutty, slightly roasted aroma. Flavour is caramel malt, nuts....a little toasty.. Mild, earthy-leafy bitter....a touch of a metallic note....... Pretty decent.

12oz bottle, from Brennan’s in Wisconsin. Purchased during my stay for GTMW. Clear red, amber, kind of light brown color. Pours with a thin fizzing finger of khaki head, that slowly fizzes away to a thin amount, leaves a few loose dots of lace. Up front in the aroma, there’s some chocolate, nuttiness, and dark fruit. Mostly sweet dark fruity malts to the flavor. Some toastiness comes out later. The name kind of implies that this is an ESB, but there’s very little hop character to it. Moderate sweet taste, very light bitter. Medium body. Kind of smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation, with a slick finish. Alright amber ale overall. Decent to enjoy with my sandwich.

madvike (3166) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle - Nice clear brown pour with a lovely creamy light tan head. Nose is lightly toasted malt, butter, and a light herbal hopping. Taste has much of the butteryness, with lightly toasted malt, a sugary sweetness, and an off sourness. Light herbal hopping. Medium-thin and overcarbonated. Not good.

Drjohnrock (677) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Large off white head, medium red/amber hue, light to moderate and somewhat refined malty nose, medium bittersweet flavor (with the balance tilting slightly to the bitter) that like a cross between a bitter and an amber. Interesting, sessionable brew.

Bottle from Woodman’s Foods in Onalaska, WI. Somewhat hazy brown pour with a smaller white head. I’m not digging the aroma/odor of this thing - stale grass or hay or something. Taste isn’t so bad - roasted malts, mild caramel sweetness.
