Pour is a clear copper with a small whtie head. Aroma is deffinatly all malt. Very Maris Ottery. Flavor is a toffee and caramel malt forward beer. Finish is clean and earthy. Not a style thatís going to wow anyone but it was true to the style and very drinkable.

On tap at Urban Chestnut on Jan 11th. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Bitter, hoppy flavors. Alright english pale ale, but Iím not a big fan of the style.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a reddish tinge and sticky white head. Nose is toasty malt and a grassy hops, light fruity notes. On tasting, orange blossom and fresh cut grass, toasty malts. Drying finish, medium bodied. Quite refreshing albeit a touch boring in terms of hops. Very well made.

seymour (1410) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Tasted on tap at the brewery tasting room in a nonic pint glass. It poured a hazy amber/copper color with persistent white foam and sticky lace. Aromas of earthy and citrusy English hops, husky grain, rising bread dough, freshly baked whole-grain bread, mild but pleasing and historically-accurate. Delicious, true-to-style flavors, too: sweet malts, biscuits, crackers, toasted nuts, light caramel, fruity ale yeast, apricots, orange rind and zest. Light-medium carbonation, light-medium body, lingering fruity and bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty, easy-drinking, and well-balanced English ale, I would love to drink several at a sitting. Highly recommended.

beernbourbon (1297) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Tap at brewpub. Pour is light brown with a thin white head. Aroma is light floral hop, faint cookie malt, and a light citrus component. Flavor is also lightly hopped with hints of citrus and a faint, lightly sweet malt. Seems like one could drink lots of these.

vyvvy (3949) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Pours amber/orange with an off-white sudsy head. The aroma has fruitiness (especially nectar fruit), toasted malt on the dry side, spiciness and some earthy qualities. Medium crisp body with semi-soft frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, spicy hops, nectar fruits and a bit of a dryness to it. The finish adds some grassy and earthy hop character. Decent English pale.
