Bottle - Pours a medium amber, white head, fades quick, but leaves lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, figs, other dark fruit. Tastes of sweet malts, fermented breads, caramel, toffee, dry hops. Feels like an amber lager. Decent Bitter.

I really enjoyed this one, even though its quite easy and simple. Gentle IPA-character, some yeast and fruits/citrus in the aroma. Well-balanced and the taste is softly bitter. Good!

Beautiful amber colour. Typical nose. Fairly tight though. Medium(well) mouth feel. Good flavour upfront and follow through. Smooth all the way. Solid beer.

Do I rate by flavor or by style? I suppose by flavor, with comments on the style. This had a rich British Isles taste, I suppose coming from the malts and hops, with a bit of a peaty character thrown in there. I happen to like this flavor profile, but APA it most definitely is not.

Bottle. Pours cloudy golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, maybe some orange coming through and some spices. Taste is well balanced between the malt and hops, seems to be a little malty for me, again I get an orange Kool Aid taste. Little bitterness, medium body. Went well with pizza.

basspro76 (426) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2010
First sip was very dry with not much flavor to it. As I continued on though a wealth of flavors came out. Has a definite light sweetness, good malty flavor, light bitterness and and almost nutty flavor. Great beer, could drink about nine of these in a sitting.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pleasant but forgettable bitter style ale. I prefer my bitters to taste a bit less like every other ale this brewery puts out, and have a load more flavor. That being said, this is a great beer to introduce relatives or friends to real craft beer with. Mild and safe enough to please the masses, but ultimately, drinkable.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Not quite as hoppy as I would have liked, but still not bad. Amber coloring, with a funny off-white head. Malty aroma, with some citrus mixed in. Flavor is fairly mellow, with a pretty substantial mouthfeel. Run of the mill, but not in a bad way.

tekstr1der (424) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Boring beer. Pours a light copper with very little head. Smells of some malt, but not much transfers to flavor. Very thin and mostly bland. Not bad, and quite drinkable, just not very interesting.
