Look here, this is exactly what you would want from an easy drink’er: a medium malty backbone, with a nice crisp hop presence. Don’t over-think this one, it is a fine session beer. Serving: Multiple pours off draft.

Transfer from BA review on 10-14-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a golden orange color with a one finger white head that has a decent level of retention. Over a time of about 5 minutes the head fades to give a medium level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heavy of a sweet caramel smell. Mixed with this aroma is a sweet toffee and a biscuit and light herbal smell. Overall, sweet, but quite pleasant. Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste with some lighter notes of caramel. The caramel flavor grows stronger as the taste advances further. As it moves on more there are other flavors of a herbal and citrus hop bitterness that subdue some of the sweeter notes well. In the end a balanced sweet/malty/bitter flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level being just the same. Both are very good for the style and suit the flavors very well. Overall – Quite nice and drinkable. A fantastically easy drinking brew with a good flavors.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Nice hefty biscuity flavour with a citrus aftertaste. Pretty classic, and another example of Brooklyn's versatility

Very enjoyable. English malts really make this one and I enjoy the hop of an America pale ale. Good. Not great.

Clear, copper in color with a small foamy head fading to just a ring around the edge. Little to no carbo’s. Nothing to write home as far as aroma: malts and hops with the hops having a slight lemony taste. Nothing special tatse wise, maybe a bit of biscuit. Dry Average beer. Last night I had a Samual Smith Old Brewery Pale Ale. That was a very good beer in my opinion. The reviewed beer doen’t match up very well. Drink well my friends

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma is mostly malty with just a hint of citrus. Taste of biscuits malts with that hint of citrus popping up here too.

På tapp på Onkel Oscars i Namsos. Ravfarget med fint skum. Noe vannaktig i smaken. God tørsteslukker i varmen.

Bright clear gold beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little dry. Modest carbonation. Smooth dry malt. Whisper of overripe fruits. Touch of bitterness before the dry finish. Duller than dishwater!
