2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared 8 oz’er draft at the brew pub. Golden copper with a thin but sudsy head. The flavor carries a metallic edge, a seemingly extract-based malt sweetness. A bit thin. (#4493, 2/25/2012)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - pours clear amber / gold with a white head. The aroma has dry lightly toasted malt, spicy/earthy british hops, crackers and dry toffee. The body is fairly light and very crisp with lively sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with British earthy hoppiness, malt notes from the aroma and is quite dry and crackery. The finish is quite spicy. Really nice to get a beer like this freshly brewed and local instead of being shipped across an ocean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 10/29/11. Pint draft from the Brewpub. Pours filtered with a honey golden hue. Clinging white head. Aromas of mildly sugary cereal malts, and not much else. Medium bodied and sticky with a dry finish and a mild malt bill. Decent bitterness and hop character, but the malts are still the dominant flavor. Soggy malts and a mild graham cracker flavor. Grassy hops with a subtle tart, berry bitterness. Decent palate roll between the tart, tangy and sweet. Earthy and root hops. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a dark copper color with an off white head. The aroma was caramel malt and a decent dose of citrus and herbal hops. Slight bitterness. The taste was a bit more restrained with nothing really standing out. Drinks quite well and was a nice find.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Labeled "English Bitter", 4.2% ABV. Pours a semi-cloudy bright golden color with a finger-thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, crackers, hay, and faint grass- very lager-like aroma, actually. Flavor of crackers, hay, toasted and pale malts, and cereal. Quick finish. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, mildly bitter mouthfeel. Not bad, but not as complex or tasty as the Best.
