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 (5119) - 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 TimE (6067) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2011
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.

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 Ungstrup (38242) - 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. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 22, 2010
