Orange. This is actually the first brew pub I’ve had that says English style Ale and produces an English style Ale. Others in the past have overhopped the hell out of the style. Aurelius (5570) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Bright orange. Mild leathery aroma. Lagerish, dry, tart. Medium-light body. Astringent finish with some biscuits in the aftertaste. Unexciting. themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - OCT 19, 2006
Better than the Golden Ale offering, but only slightly better. Can’t remember anything distinictive or beneficial to say about this ale... Very rough throughout, not refined, gritty palate... well, there’s nothing good about that. A little better than the Macros but can learn refinement from them. Not distinctive.
