22oz bottle pours a tea brown with a thin cream head. Aroma is brown sugar, dark fruits, dish soap. Tastes of bitter funk with a hint of cherries. Mouthfeel is active, somewhat soapy. Not a huge fan of this. fiulijn (21470) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from the brewery Ferris (16751) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Hazy amber color, bright light, with medium sized head. Funky aroma. Too much carbonation, smooth mouthfeel; very funky flavor, a bit astringent, yeasty.
Clearly infected, the result is not too bad. It would have some success if marketed as American Farmhouse ;-)
Bottle - Flowery, spicy and nice fruit. Cloudy orange with a decent beige head. Peppery, flowery and a weird bite. Spicy but I like it. mcberko (19227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dry molasses, toasted malts, and some dry burnt sugar. Flavour is rather bitter, with burnt dry sugar, hoppy spiciness, and toasted malt. Another infected beer from the brewery, though not a disaster. Something slightly off here, but it’s still drinkable. Meh. nealblind (1979) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 28, 2014
golden yellow pour sturdy head.

aroma hay, caramel pond. Tastes like a metal pipe, creamy yeast, apples, caramel. Drying creamy finish
pours a cloudy copper with a very small white head that goes away quickly, and no lacing. bhensonb (15861) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
smell is of pear, green apple, and other fruits, floral, some caramel, and a little sweetness.
taste is not that great. apple, pear, some caramel, some malt, grass, and earth. ends bitter with a bad lingering aftertaste.
Bolmber from Malt & Vine. The bottle is filled to within 1/8th inch from the top. Crazy! Pours dark ruddy copper with a decent frothy off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar and herby hop. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, roast malt, something burning spice, and a good dose of herb hop. Goes earthy towards the finish. I have no idea how this connects to Burton Upon Trent, but it’s a very tasty ale! 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle:   Deep reddish caramel, moderate frothy head, tannish, spotty lacing.   Has a slight woody aroma, a little biscuit, some mollases and brown sugar.   Similar tongue, but also a little bit of low mountain shrubbiness, very vibrant in that aspect.   Reminds me a little of Juniper.   Light sweetness, malty, some biscuit, low hops, with some woodsy/mountain shrubby like flavors.   At first I was like WTF, but its growing on me.   Despite being 6.6% it feels a bit warming (fine by me).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Clean finish.   Had I drank this blind I would have never guessed English Pale Ale as usually they seem somewhat musty and dank.   This is vibrant, fresh, with some bright earthy notes.   Expensive, but enjoyable. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Draft at elliott bay pizza. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a loose tan head. Gorgeously integrated nose of graham crackers and soft brightly acidic citric hops, like oranges and lemons. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty graham cracker and caramel mid palate with a bright lemon and.orange overtone, washing out into a nice crisp bitey finish. Jim knocked this one out of the park. wabeerman (24) - Washington, USA - APR 11, 2012
This is almost perfection, or maybe it is. Some intrigued reading the history of this almost extinct beer style "Burton Ale". I have never tasted anything like this and really want to have more. I heard that Foggy Noggin is planning on bottling this beer, and I will be stocking up on this when it happens. This may be the best beer I have ever had.
