COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional English special bitter, brewed with British yeast, barley, and hops. This smooth treat has a malt character that is rich in nutty caramel sweetness finished by the flavor and aroma of classic East Kent Golding hops. Made extra special smooth by nitrogen carbonation.

sample draft at brewpub. aroma is mild, but has some of the characteristic toffee and caramel-like notes...some bitter notes in the background. flavor is also somewhat mild, bout generally tasty...toffee malts, hint of caramel, toasted and slightly yeasty, but not particularly Bitter. palate is medium bodied...generally appropriate for the style. good brew, but this seemed a bit out of style...almost got an amber ale or marzen feel from this at times, but would definitely revisit regardless.

Smell is very malty/toffee/caramel and English hops. Taste has something off about it that I don't care for. It his right up front, and is a little off putting. There is a really solid beer here with some tweaking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the brewpub. My 700th rating from MN brewers! Clear light amber pour with white head. Toffee and earthy hops. Slightly sweet. Good.

nickd717 (3470) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Clear deep amber in color with an off-white head. Big malty notes on the aroma, nutty with caramel. The flavor is very nutty and restrained on the hops. Caramel and toffee with leafy flavors. Medium-bodied and smooth on the mouthfeel. An excellent example of the style, even if it tends more toward an amber ale.

Amber/brown in color. Sweet, fruity, toasted malt in the nose. Flavor is toasted malt, light biscuit, fruity esters, and a light bitter finish. Nothing too spectacular, but okay.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 10, 2010
On tap the the brewpub. Poured a clear amber orange with an off-white head that dissipated to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma consisted of notes of caramel and sweet grain with a slight biscuit and undertone of light pine. Flavor started with biscuit and caramel and had a bit of pine coming out in the finish.

Tap. Dark orange pour, medium carbonation and a nice malty aroma. Flavor was also plenty of malt, good meld of subtle hops and a nice and very herbal bitter aftertaste. Well done!
