DocLock (9857) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep caramel colored with 2-finger fluffy white head and a lot of carbonation. Nose is very bready, yeasty, with notes of caramel, hops, tannins. Tastes caramel malty, bready and yeasty, somewhat sweet, very complex, with the caramel breadiness hitting at first, then more fruit, hops, and tannins late. This one is rock solid.

Holmen1 (4733) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2012
From bottle at Copenhagen Beer Festival: at only 4,1% this is a superb beer, fruity, complex, very well balanced and with great drinkability. Exactly as I remember from cosy English pubs.

Aroma is rich caramel and toffee, bready biscuit. Appearance is crystal clear, small white head. Striking copper orange apricot color, almost glowing. Taste is firm hops bitternes/crispness engulfed in pleasant sweet caramel malt. Balanced, but bitterness forward. Some toffee and a little apple. Water is minerally. Hint of diacetyl adds a bit of body and helps malt linger. Some floral and grassy hop aromas but nearly all bittering hops, which are firm and uniquely complex. Palate is light and crisp. Minerally. Very drinkable. Still has good mouthfeel for such a small beer. Overall very impressive IMO. Many unique flavors that are hard to find in any beer, let alone such a small one. Hops bitterness is unique and complex. Caramel malt is deep and lingers. Easily the best I have had of the style.

ben4321 (5641) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Location: .5 liter bottle shared by mwmanvt, 4/27/12

Aroma: The nose is clean and malty, some grass, toast, and light citrus
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a small head and light lacing
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet and pretty malty, with light citrus and earthy flavors
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a clean feel, average carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one made the trek all the way back from London (though it probably could have been purchased here pretty easily). Thanks, Mike! I thought this was a solid, but not overwhelmingly exciting British style ale. I don’t have too much to add beyond that.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2012
Clear brown ale pours with a medium head. Very nice Yorkshire Pale Ale with a full flavour of syrupy, bready malts. Not the strongest, but a perfect session beer, always a favourite for me

Clear amber color, small steady off-white head. British hoppy with crystal malty sweetness, a bit dusty aroma. Light to medium bodied. English hops, some caramel, "ryeish" hoppyness. Short bitter finish. Very British, nice beer for this ABV.
