Tap @ SPH. Pours a more golden color, which is a surprise for the style, with a small, lacy white head. Aroma is caramel and malt, with a slight detectable hop and rye as well. Taste is caramel malt, with a grainy characteristic in the middle and a nice aftertaste of hops. This is a great example of the style, and a nice offering from this absolutely fantastic brewery.

Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of faint floral hops, malt, grain, cereal, and a hint of minerals. Poured copper/amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white/tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, slight florals, grass, resin, slight grain, slight minerals, and wood. Medium body. Sticky, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, wood, grass, mineral finish is dry. A nice session bitter.

on tap, SHPH night, Blind Tiger. Golden/light orange in color with a medium head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel, with notes of fruit. Taste is fruity, orange, with a good amount of floral hop character. Lightly bitter finish that lingers nicely. Haven’t had that many of these but seemed to be pretty well made.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Light spice which probably comes from the added minerals. Very light floral and random fruit in the nose and flavor. Enjoyable.

Tap at the Publick House, poured into a pint glass. When I think of the Britsh this is the beer that comes to mind. First of all its just slightly dark pale colored with a mediocre head. So at first a bore, but just not boring enough where someone may actually find this to be a "nice" looking beer. The beer itself screams "the British are coming, the British are coming." It is rather harsh, i almost feel like rocks are scratching my throat. Yet in a subtle way, where you want to appreciate its texture. It has a slight fruity aspect but a british fruitiness, meaning no sweetness or anything tasty. And very dry of course, where would the Brits be without that dryness. Leaves a nice long bitter aftertaste, just so you remember you are drinking a British ale. So nice job recreating something a merry old chap would love.
