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.

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.
