Pours a light copper with a lasting head. Smooth and refreshing this is a perfect session ale.

Copper and very dark in the glass. Aromas of roast and spices and light hops. The tastes are complex and hold you attention. A little aromatic spices, and a little floral taste. This ESB is not really bitter, though, and the coloring defies the catgory, too. Still, an interesting brew.

A nice dark amber look with a thin white head that dissipates rather quickly. Not too hoppy, not too malty. My only problem with this brew is that it had an odd, earthy after taste that I had to was away with another ale.

A VERY fine Olde English Pale Ale. I really enjoyed the heck out of this. It has a nice, earthy flavor to it which is quite awesome. Lovely, just lovely.

Pours a deep brown color. Smells a little hoppy with a real spicy/sweet pepperish bite. A little bit of roasted malt at the finish.

Pours deep amber with a nice white head...smells malty and peppery...tastes hoppy at first then a little sweetness...a good mild pale!

Tastes great, but little else going on. That is, too fizzy, looks crap, etc. Nevertheless it’s good where it counts at least - a fine tasting beer.

This beer had a nice amber color with a medium sized head that disappeared fairly quickly. The mouthfeel was pretty good, as it felt very full in my mouth. I thought the taste was nice and balanced with a good full malty flavor. It’s not a striking beer, but it’s definitely not bad.

Amber brown color w/ a light head, not too bad of a beer, a little bitter, and has a slight nutty flavor.

good balancing of hops, pours a redish-brown hue, nice aroma & slight nutty flavor.... a good beer.
