CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
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.

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

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Draught at Waterfront Ale House, Bklyn. Amber with a frothy white head, leaving sheets of lacing. Straw and grainy malt aroma with a light fruitiness. Flavor of sweet cereal malts with notes of light citrus and grass. Couldnít really note any mineral additions. Mildly bitter hop finish. Nothing exciting, but very drinkable nonetheless. A pretty good session ale, if anything.

JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2009
On cask. Pours hazy gold, bit of an orange tint. Fluffy (for cask) white head. Nose is lightly sweet pale malts, hops come through lightly with a bit of citrus. Hard to grab on to. Malt comes through as lightly sweet and a bit doughy, with a nice, firm, spicy, citrusy hop note. Finish is lightly bitter, with a bit of an odd corny aftertaste. May have been bad tap lines. Strange. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied, very mild carbonation, even for cask.

beerbill (3272) - 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.

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.

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.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Tap at SPH - Amber, off white creamy head. Lightly sour nose of florals, citrus, and hints of sweet malt. Flavor held notes of light citric and floral bitterness throughout. Light bodied, light carbonation, dry, soft hoppy finish. Nice rendition and very drinkable...
