Mini growler from a keg at Beer Table Pantry - NYC. Pours clear chestnut with a fine, white foam head. The nose holds mild autumnal spices, toasty bread and dried leaves. Light sweet flavor with dried berries, mellow toasted bread, faint leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Simple, somewhat bland finish with light doughy and grainy brown bread, small leafy bitterness. So so. blipp (9374) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Draft. Pours dull gold with a white head. Pale/crackery malts, some faint nutty sweetness, light earthy notes, and a nice clean and slightly bitter finish. Pretty good. luttonm (6486) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 11, 2010

Tap at the Diamond. Hazy amber beer with a cloudy pour. Very soft aroma, a touch of breadiness and a touch of yeastiness as well. A light grassiness with some lightly crackery malts. Some honeyish flavour over a soft and woody flavour. A slight hint of cherryish esters. Softly malty on the back. It’s pretty simple, but the beer is well made and in pretty good shape. A light lingering orangey flavour along with a lingering dustiness. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2008
Draft at Jakes. Nice pour with a tight off white head. Aroma is light caramel and spices (cinnamon?). Flavor is like peanut butter from a can, with a tinny finish. Kelso house flavor is all over this with a slight butteriness. Not horrible and I give props for attempting the style. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Tap at the Diamond. Mild flavor, but still bitter. Aroma is nutty, bitter, chicken, euro hops. Not as easy drinking as Id like at all for a 3.8% beer. Mild, sugary malts, medium body, too much carb. Cask may help this lots. PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Tap at the Diamond: Pours a deep golden orange with a small, dense light tan head. The nose is great with lots of Britsh nutty malts, toasted biscuit, walnut hints and just a tad of subdued flowery & citrusy hops. Mild carbonation, fluffy and light. Nice soft malts in the flavor- very nutty with an earthy/twiggy character and toasted husky hints. Mildly hopped, but a touch of citrus comes out when it warms along with a mild mellow flowery character in the finish. Nice British style session ale.
