Tap at SPH. Pale golden beer, light haze. Nice earthy hoppy aroma over crisp apple/pear fruitiness. Nice minerally flavour adds a crispness that accents the earthy/woody hops. Lean malts just back up the crisp bitterness. Flavour is slightly leafy with a light appley fruitiness. Designed for knocking off pint after pint.

Hand-bottle from Dickinsonbeer sampled in Nov. 2006: Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of off-white lightly-lacing head. Interestingly sweet, floral lavender and peppery English hoppy aroma. Body starts lightly sweet, drying quickly with a touch of bready yeast and floral English hops. Fairly true to style but unique.

I have to say, they really crafted a beer that tastes as if it’s 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 aren’t that good - they’ve crafted a medium bodied, quite bready, herbal ale here - very cloudy - looks as if it’s come out of the cask - I must say, british hops have never tasted so good, but they’re still british hops.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours deep gold into an English pint. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving scant sheets to skim surface. Sourdough, toffee and caramel aromas. Soft with dark caramel and toffee upfront turning to hot yeast before the lasting bitter earth finish. Tastes much more than the 4.2% listed, and the 4.7% in the deScription.
