Great beer to have in your back pocket when the bar doesn’t have other craft options. Long time favorite of mine. Should have a picture of the beer next to it in the dictionary when defining American Ale.

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Draft in a branded pint glass. Lovely amber/polished walnut colour, big rocky white head. Drunk around a lot of smokers... Aromas of... Er, faintly polished wood? Tastes lovely nut sweet with a full, clean bitter finish. Very pleasant lingering bitterness. Will rerate once in a less smelly environment.
