miscast as a pale - IPA right in the description.
"i still prefer the hoppier american IPAs, especially when the Racer 5 is available, but this is a solid english. very well balanced and tasty. semi sweet malt and floral hops. the body, flavor, and aroma are all nice, but a little understated. "

Hanging with JoeT at the brewery on Aug 9, 2011 for my birthday. I was more focused on the company than the notes, but these’ll do until I get back there this summer and do it right. Listed as English IPA. Best so far. Nice clean hoppy sharpness. Smack finish. Clean and nice.

DialSquare (5144) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. from sampler notes: earthy pine and pale malt aroma. sweet caramel malt taste with grassy pine bitter hops to balance out. ok - 6.6

I had this right after the Jack London and honestly stylistically they were quite similar. Although it says traditional English style, I found it too sweet and moreover a bit unbalanced for the style and definitely not British. Much more like an American Amber. Dark amber-orange color. Malty backbone with some fruity hopiness. Still not really my cup of tea. Honestly saying this is the first BR beer I wouldn’t order again, though I am not saying it is a bad beer.

AlephNull3 (114) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2010
Pours a nice golen hue with a big frothy light head. No real distinct aroma to speak of. Taste on the weak and light side. Not really execiting at all. Ok beer

3.1
Ungstrup (38597) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2010
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is a bit weirdly hoppy - is it East Kent? The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and hops, as well as lighter notes of metal, hay, citrus, and chewy malt, leading to a dry, bitter, and hayish finish.

3.7
swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2010
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. pours a thick looking creamyamber orange with long lasting creamy white head. Aroma is somewhat vague & lacking. Pinch of british hops & malts. Real nice flvaor of Britsh malts & hops, BIG creamy mouthfeel. Active mouthfeel. Very good British Pale, way better than most of the British made ones
