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.

3.8 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.

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.

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.

On tap at The Civil Life. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Bitter, grainy, slight hoppy flavor. I’m not a fan of bitters, but this is pretty good.

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.

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.
