Draft - Caramel and twig. Clear caramel with a frothy white head. Twig and light bitter caramel. True to style. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt orange color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated fairly quick. Light lace.
The aroma had some sweet malty biscuity/bready tones touched with some grassy hops. Caramel and toffee qualities slide in for a nice English-esque crispness. Slight clean earthiness, mild acceptable soapiness.
The flavor blends the malty tones together. The hops seem only there for some balance, but actually maintain a nice background. Crisp malty aftertaste with the same sort of finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. ABV felt right. Nice smoothness.
Overall, as an English Bitter it works and keeps the "soapiness" under control. BuckeyeBoy (9219) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2015
On cask at Boise pub. Pours out a orangeish copper topped with a small head. Nose is malty caramel toffee and some hops. Taste is more of the sweetness caramel toffee honey and a nice hop touch on the end. stevoj (5958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 8, 2014
