4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly different from the usual Three Floyds MO. The beer is crystal clear with an amber/orange color. The aroma is floral, but not C-hop floral. The beer is light and crisp, very drinkable. Noticable use of English malt and hops, perhaps Fuggles. Teh beer finishes with a round english touch. Good mineral taste throughout as evident in many english style beers. Definately a nice deviation from Floyds.

Draft at the brewery. Good stuff. I'd say it's somewhere right in between the Pride&Joy and Alpha King. Smooth flavor, I could drink a few of these in a row. Didn't feel like a bitter to me, but it was good and quite drinkable. I'd like to try it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A new Three Floyds brew and on tap only. Has a golden hue with minimal head and some lace. The aroma hints of citrus (orange and lemon, not grapefruit), grassy and floral hops. dusty and earthy yeast esters, toasted malts. The taste displays a smoother bitter tone than any other FFF offering, a nice and welcomed change of pace. Good round balance with sublime malting and tradional earthy undertones. Lively light to medium-bodied brew, clean and crisp. This is a solid session brew and a nice addition to the FFF lineup. A brew you can drink all day. Note: The water has been altered to give the brew a more "English" feel.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2003 This English bitter takes on the famous Three Floyds character. Obviously bitter with a hint of Floyd-like hops bite. a great aftertaste makes this a pleasent addition to the Three Floyds line. Can we say imperial american standard?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at 3F: Light copper color, med-thin head. Light biscuity aroma. Caramelly biscuity flavor, hint of orange in the hops? Strong bite from carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2004 Drank at the brewery. Pretty good, tastes pretty much like the rest of the Three floyd pale ales. there’s a slight oatmeal taste in the first few sips.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gentle oatmel smoothness with spicy hoppiness. Sort of a doughy, biscuity aroma. Nothing about this beer really jumped out for me, which I suppose is appropriate for something aiming to be a bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery.
Kind of a head scratcher here. Color is a reddish-yellow with a quickly diminishing head. Not at all as aggressive as expected. Mellow due to oatmeal, but with a stoniness to the finish. Good for sessioning.
