RATINGS: 27   MEAN: 2.88/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.86/5   EST. CALORIES: 174   ABV: 5.8%
Live ale from the hand pump. Well balanced English style India Pale Ale. Not as aggressively hopped as its American cousin. East Kent Goldings, Fuggles, and First Gold hops all added throughout the boil for a well rounded taste. Dry hopped. Alcohol strength is evident but not overwhelming.
Cask conditioned, very hoppy IPA. A real ale from the hand pump.

Tap. Lots of butterscotch. Bitter on the backend. Very, very butterscotch. This was my first P&P beer of the evening, and I was soon to learn that they ALL have a butter flavor.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Cask at the pub with argo0, MRomero548, and Degarth...once we found it:

A hazed unfliltered coppery hue with small lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, apple, bready malts, and floral hops. A zesty grapefruit and apple twang with some caramel and rye characteristics and a malty midesection. There is however a noticeable diacetyl nature to the brew that keeps it from being much better. The feel is smooth has expected with some metallic notes on the aftertaste. I liked it but then again I like cask bitters. (FYI, this place has a GREAT selection of single malt scotch!)

arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2005
On cask into shaker glass. Hazy yellow orange in the glass with a medium sized fizzy head. Grapefruit and flowery hops smell. Bubble gum flavor right off the bat (like that pink liquid medicine I used to take as a kid), followed by some weak hops. Acidic and sweet in the finish with some weak metallic hops dryness. Nice body.

Ungstrup (35863) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2005
[Cask at the brewpub] A hazy orange beer with a small orange head. The aroma is very lightly hoppy. The flavor is hoppy with notes of oranges and grass, but also with off-notes of butter.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Yeasty (warm-like), wet bread-dough nose. Had a musty, cleaning-product, wet rag type of smell/aroma to it that was a big turn off. Malts were pretty musty too. Yeast seemed to dominate, and made it hard to enjoy the malts or hops.
