Draught. My Border ancestors drank ale like this. Deep amber red with lasting off white head. Sweet malty aroma. Very full. Full bodied. Malt with some peatiness. Lasting malt finish, with enough hop to keep it honest. Excuse me, friends, I must now go and steal horses.

drpimento (2212) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Not bad, not great. Poured at a good temperature with an average off white head and some lace. Color is a very slightly hazy dark amber. Aroma is super mild with only a hint of malt and hop. Flavor’s like nose, carbonic tang up front, followed by bitter/sweet. Not a lot going on. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, average length, and forgettable.

Reid (1874) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22oz from Fred Meyer in S.Salem ( Commercial St. store). Surprised to see this at Freddys hope this gives this small brewery a boost. $3.99. Certainty looks like an English style ale in my Imperial nonic glass..chesnut brown with a small creme coloured head. Attractive. Smells of english hop,tobacco,toffee,light cocoa..very nice and very authentic. Taste is the same as aroma with a bit of demerara sugar and hazelnut, lovely quite lovely. Great palate to this one,low carbonation and smooth finish. A very good English ESB really better than any i have tasted from American brewers

Pours amber with a thin off white head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is toasty and sweet, of malt, caramel, and bread with a medium finish. Decent ale, drinkable and enjoyable but not full flavored.

Strong sweet malt flavor throughout. Pleasant west coast hops and a nice bitter finish tie it all together. Really nice but rather immemorable.

Lagerboy (1211) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Clear dark amber with a fading tan head. Aroma of caramel and dark roasty malts, which are nicely balanced with a generous amount of hops. Medium bodied, also some fruit and nuttiness. Slow bitter finish. Nice stong ale. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with some reddish highlights and a large (3-4 finger) light brown frothy head that had great retention, reducing to a med cap and having good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a dark bread malt, floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark fruit (plums, figs and overripe grapes) and a mild nuttiness. The taste was very malty with a nice toffee sweetness from the onset, becoming fully robust with a bold dark fruit presence and a mild hoppiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a good fruity maltiness and a slight alcohol warming sensation left to linger. Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a dry oily texture and a ticklish carbonation. Overall a fully robust and flavorful brew that possessed a nice light sweet fruitiness, which worked perfectly along with the slight hoppy presence...
