This is a somewhat fruity English bitter. But not much flavor beyond that. Had this on tap at the civil life tap room in STL.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery. A bit of haze in the golden brew. A small off white layer leaves lacing. This has a nice creamy feel. Soft fruit,, grain, gentle hops, a bit of honey, mild bitterness that grows. Quite nice and the low ABV is a bonus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 Pint draft at the Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a clear golden orange, with a small off white head. The aroma is grainy rough malt, a bit of iced tea character and spicy floral hops fainter in the back. The taste is mostly the malt, lightly sweet, grainy rough, and more of the iced tea type flavor. The hops are present towards the end, giving it some floral and drying out the finish. The palate is medium to light bodied, lower carbonation level and the drier finish. Straight forward, clean, easy drinking beer. Hit the spot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Tasted on tap at brewpub in nonic half-pint glass. It poured a nice orange color with a little chill haze, thin but persistent white head and lots of lace. 100% true-to-style aromas and flavors: malty, biscuity, nutty, great tangy balance of Centennial and EKG hops, earthy, flowery, citrusy, with distinctly English fruity ale yeast esters. American bittering hops (not too much grapefruit) + English aroma hops = best of both worlds. Low-medium body and carbonation, bready and well-rounded mouthfeel, very crisp snap at the finish. Nicely done. I’d love to taste a cask-conditioned version.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden color, floral-grassy hop nose, moderately bitter, dry on the finish. Simple, addictive, and too few like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at brewpub October 2011-pours lite orange with a small soapy white fluffy head. nose is sweet and grain husks-more like a mild than a bitter. even though it was very husky, it was in the pure grain, not a dms type of nose. flavors are grain husks, bread and lite bitter hops and i mean lite. for a bitter this is very mild. a decent sessionable low hop beer.
