This was a disappointment usually I enjoy ale’s, Too bitter with a lingering after taste, but if that is what they were going for then they got it right.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/8/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very good English pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is bitter and grainy. The taste is more of the grainy bitterness. Just a touch floral. Medium body Nd medium carbonation.

dlovell2 (1737) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Poured from bottle. Pours amber with white head. Aroma is carmal malt with citrus, herbal, and floral hops. Flavor is sweet caramel malt up front with an earthy herbal, citrus, pine hoppy finish. Clean crisp finish. This is one of the beers responsible for my interest in craft beer that I had back in 2003. This beer is true classic.

Pours an straw from a bottle, grassy notes, seemed more like a lightly hopped pilsener taste-wise. Okay beer.

jrodooo5 (1474) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Plain w/out flaws or anything that makes it stand out! Light coppper pour w/ a thin white head & a bit of lacing. The aroma has some subtle malt to it. The taste is dominated by semi sweet malt that makes the beer pretty drinkable. It’s light & good for summer but to call this a flagship beer is a little scary & concerning about what else they have to offer! Mediocre at best!
