CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2013
Notes of swamp grass, dirt, pine, butter, and toast. Definitely some roasted malts in here. To be honest, Im not very familiar with this style and dont have much of a reference point in terms of how this is "supposed" to taste. Its not bad, though. I find it interesting enough. Not really a refreshing beer, and not really a hop or malt bomb. Im getting a little bit of a taste that a Magic Hat beer in a spring mix pack a few years ago had. Theres maybe just a hint of what youd get in a Stock Ale, an Irish Red, or an ESB blended together. Also reminds me a tad of some of the Wild Goose (defunct mid-atlantic brewer) beers- similar hops or yeast strain, possibly. Low ABV for an American craft beer, but I think thats characteristic of English-style bitters.

Great example of an American amber. They say English bitter but its a malty-amber hit that segues into a crisp, hoppy finish that I think defines it.

onceblind (8934) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 7, 2017
Clear amberish copper with a thick rocky ivory head. Bright English malty nose thats a touch bready with quiet grassy slightly pear-like hop tones. Crisp English bready malt flavors dominate the palate with a crisp semidry body and super gentle toffee with a very light citrus floral hop grassiness. Very quiet hops but not so malty that it goes into the dark or doppel category. Just a brisk malty English Ale.

17Beer (310) - Connecticut, USA - APR 6, 2017
Bread and malt smells with some sour apple.Pours a cloudy orange with an anemic white qyuickly dissipating head. Plenty of lacing. Oily bitter flavors of leather and a little caramel malty notes. Good imitation of the style.
