Bottle. Copper with a thin white head. Citrus and caramel aroma with slight spice. Sweet and floral up front that leads to a malty bready finish. My first trip to the windy city and overall it’s a good beer.

Golden yellow to amber with a thin white head. Aroma of mild citrus, caramel and grassy hops. Malted body has a mild bitter finish and not a whole lot of flavor with mild caramel preceding a citrus hop finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Color of an old penny. Hard to judge the head because it was served with a clear plastic cup to pour the bottle into. That being said, it made a small, rapidly dissipating head and left a little lacing on the plastic cup. Malty nose with a slight fruitiness. Nice balance of simple malts and hops in the flavor with a bitter hop finish. Had I not known the type, and been asked to guess, I’d have guessed ESB, and a pretty good one at that.

GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Copper appearance with a full, quickly dissipating light beige head that leaves little lacing behind. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with some honey presence. Nice sweet malty flavor with a hearty nutty/bread palate. Nice balance.

On tap. Poured a medium amber with a two inch yellow head. First smell was sweet and malty. Mouthful was fairly thin, and seemed almost a bit watered down. Decent enough lager(thats how it tasted to me, as I didn’t read it described as a pale ale) with mellow hop in the front and malty kind of sweet finish. Had some wheat qualities to it.

Bottled. Tasting @ Kolding Bryglaug. Aroma is floral, grauny and has honey in it. Clear, golden-copper coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is sweet, floral with some fruitiness. Okay.

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Very nice aroma poured out of the bottle on this one, flowers and spices from the hops. Looks to be bottle conditioned so that is a plus! Quality session brew, and quite a good clone of a british ale for an american brewery ;)

On Tap, Decent beer. Excellent flavor for an English pale ale. I will add more to the decription once I get a hold of an actual bottle of the stuff.
