Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Tap at Samís Ale house, NYC. Nice golden color with small but lasting white head. Aroma is malt, citrus and floral. Taste is grapefruity and mineral nastiness competing with malt, and hops in the finish. Maybe I just donít like the style, but I did not find it very refreshing or drinkable. BUY AGAIN? Maybe someday - just to see if what Iím poured or my perception of it remains the same.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2005
Nitro tap. Pours a nice medium golden with a pure white creamy head and some lace. Aroma is mostly fruity, with some apricot, along with a nice malt backbone. Some earthy and herbal hops in the aroma and flaovr as well. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth. Went down way too fast.

I have to say, they really crafted a beer that tastes as if itís come from England, right down to the British hops and funky mineral taste - sadly, this is a bad thing in this case - sorry Brits, but your hops just arenít that good - theyíve crafted a medium bodied, quite bready, herbal ale here - very cloudy - looks as if itís come out of the cask - I must say, british hops have never tasted so good, but theyíre still british hops.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 Poured a golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and green floral hops. Taste was lightly sweet malts, with a bitter grapefruit hop finish.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Nice light golden color with a thick white head. Good hops and citrus in the aroma along with various fruits. Taste has a good maltiness. Another good one from Southampton.

04.23.05 Tap at TAP NY. Nice pale malts, not sweet or at all papery. Full body in front. Cleans to a sharp hop surprise. Very refreshing. Low fruit factor. Cleanser, quaffer.
