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.

TomDecapolis (4473) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2007
On tap at Ortinos Northside. Pours a lightly hazy golden amber with a large foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of floral, citrus, cereal grains, sweet malts. Flavor of hops, citrus, grains, pine, some grapefruit. Nicely done bitter.

thornecb (4364) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2013
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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Poured a clear light amber color with a small off-white head. Malty caramel aroma with earthy hops underneath. The flavor was malty with a light citrus/acidic middle and finish. There was a mild bitterness on the finish. Semi-dry with a light to medium body.

beerbill (3377) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2007
On tap at the Publick House. Arrived at the table a clear coppery gold with no head. After a few sips, I swirled the beer in an effort to resuscitate the head, but each attempt ended in failure. Very light earthy aroma with some malt noted as well. Flavor is a bit malty at the beginning, followed by a subtle, dry, hoppy finish. Not an exciting beer, but then again most English bitters are pretty dull, and this one is better than most.

Tap at the Blind Tiger. Very pale pour, slight hop aroma, a little earthy but pretty absent mostly. Watery and light in the mouth with subtle hops.

Tap @ Barcade. Golden color with a small head. Aroma is mellow white pepper with some butterscotch. Taste is creamy oak with some dried leaves. Clean without any tasty hops.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 7, 2007
Tap at Hop Devil Grill: Orangey, light copper pour with an off-white film. The aroma is a bit fruity with hints of cherries & peach. Simple flavor, with only a light herbal bitterness. Mainly has a Pale malt profile, with a late grainy like bitterness. I had this after an IIPA, so maybe the bitterness is more pronounced than I perceived it to be. Still, it’s somewhat simple.

Seemed like it used a swet caramel malt. I liked it a lot, though it had more hops than I’d like.

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.
