From the tap poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice light bitter hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Prufrockstar (820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Draft at FredFest 2013 at HOTD in Portland. Should have rated this back then. It was a damned hot day, and there were a few dozen great (though strong ... so so strong) beers pouring, but this one was the one I kept returning to. Light, flavorful, sessionable ... perfect for the weather, perfect for being exactly what I wanted. When a mild-mannered bitter can hit that sweet spot where I choose to keep coming back to it over freely pouring cask Bourbon Fred or Chocolate Bourbonic Plague, it deserves to be acknowledged. If the weather was 10 degrees cooler I may have passed it by entirely, but Iím glad I didnít -- one of my favorites of the festival.

Had on tap the other day at the brewery and brought a growler home. Really nice English Session. Straightforward and drinkable. Enjoyable stuff.

dwyerpg (4507) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 3, 2013
A light somewhat hopped aroma. A bit of lemon in the flavor to me. Light and easy but not real interesting. Had at Aces & Ales.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a dirty white head. Perfumy sweet citrus nose. Lighter body wet moutfheel that gets a bit astringent at the finish. Like a lot of session IPAs (realizing this is a bitter), the hop flavor is vibrant up front, but drops off a cliff.

Gription79 (2235) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. Honey, fruity yeast profile, floral and spicy hops, malty. Thus is a tasty beer.

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Cask at whole foods in chandler az may 2013 Pours very light hazy orange witb a large fluffy white head with sparse lacing. Nose is grainy leaffy hops very traditional nose for the style flavors of leaffy hops lite pale grains and some lite bitterness really traditional for the style but in a good way. Long grainy finish with lingering leaffy lite tobbaco like notes very solid cask ale here

marcus (6342) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
On tap at FredFest 2013. Pours clear golden with an attractive white head and a bready aroma. There is a medium-bodied light malt flavor with a fairly bitter finish. Very refreshing.

adamah (214) - - APR 25, 2013
A fairly decent light easy beer. It pours a very pale yellow with minimal head. It has a very mild bready aroma. The taste was just slightly bitter otherwise kind of bland.

winebeertours (7) - - APR 13, 2013 does not count
Floral aromas of lilac and honeysuckle with a floral hop palate to match. A thoroughly decent American attempt at an English classic.
