UPDATED: OCT 9, 2015 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-golden color with a huge foamy orange-tan head that towered over the glass, lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, tart and fruity. The flavor was bitter with sour caramel, bread and crisp fruity hops. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Bottled. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a dry finish. Boring Cousin_Larry (895) - - JUL 11, 2015
Tastes like I was playing quarters with a pint of Newcastle. Good, but I wish it didn’t have the metallic aftertaste. superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/8/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a good English pale ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Not hoppy or malty at all. Has a little bit of a creaminess. Goes down smooth with a sweet caramel flavor. Not a lot of aftertaste either. Not too familiar with English style ales but this is not to bad. beer_rookie (661) - Arkansas, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours copper with a pretty nice foamy lacy head. A little cloudy. It’s unfiltered, and I love that! Well, there’s not as much sediment as what I would expect, so I would guess slightly filtered.Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 8, 2015
Aroma is caramel roasty, and maybe leathery. I’ve never really smelled a beer quite like this one. Light cloves maybe. Not that it’s bad, but different often is good.
Taste is caramel and nutty roasted malt. First taste isn’t all that great, but subsequent tastes are better. I like it! But somehow, I was expecting more.
Mouthfeel is very dry. Medium body. A little bitter, but not a lot, and slightly astringent. Not loving it so much on mouthfeel, I may have rated it a little high.
Overall, I’m a little disappointed. It’s still pretty good all around. Good character and flavor, but the mouthfeel is off. Not one I would likely seek out again.
Interesting and thin. Very enjoyable but not much of a special feature in it. Nice aroma and a little cloudy. csaso (2321) - Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle - good size foamy head, light copper color, mild biscuity malt aroma and flavor, mild earthy hop balance, fairly dry finish, a little on the bland side overall but not terrible, certainly drinkable
