Light hoppy aroma. Cloudy amber colour with poor head. Nice and malty up front with smooth but bitter finish. Medium body with low carbonation.

I guess it's an okay beer and if you want to support organic that's a plus but there's not a whole lot going on here. Had a nice off White head that lasts a while and some lace, color is clear amber. Aroma is Malt & fruit. Flavor is like aroma not very complex straightforward some carbonic tang, a little bitterness that's about it. Body is decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, grass, light caramel, almost buttery so maybe toffee, light earthy hops, grainy, fairly basic, read boring beer.

Bon color i bon escuma, pel que fa a l’aroma és bastant fluixet i en gust és un pel aigualida. Buen color y buena espuma, el aroma es flojo y en gusto un pelo aguada.

The appearance has a hazy golden/blonde colored body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that dies within about a minute leaving some nice clingy creamy looking lacing. Light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace. The smell is mainly sweet through the malt and the grain coming through in a clean yet somewhat soapy way like most English Bitters do, also I got some light corn as well. The taste is sweet through the English malts and gives off a creamy English malty aftertaste that just clings around the mouth. She has a dry bitter (but in that English sort of way) finish. On the palate, she sits a light to medium on the body, comes across somewhat sessionable, and has a carbonation that is actually somewhat smooth and ends up showing a nice creamy sort of aspect that I usually get when I have an English bitter. Overall, wow with the extremely low ABV, one would think this would be extremely sessionable however, because the way it sits on my mouth, its not as sessionable as one would think as there seems to be just enough to give it a heavier sort of feel. I would most likely want this again with some fish and chips.

pours unclear light orange with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. lightly doughy and breadied toasted nutty caramel malts, mild fruity notes - juniper berries, bitter herbs, chalky, hint of metal, mild earthy ntoes. smooth mouthfeel, clean yeast. moderate carbonation, light body, dry herbal-grassy and slightly astringent finish. like a slightly watered down version of their pale ale. no flaws but a tad boring. ok.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig, Karamell, fruchtig. Geschmack trocken fruchtig, malzig, Karamell.

I liked this bitter quit a bit. Mild and a bit watery, but the malty body and light fruity aftertaste were nice.

Pour from bottle in Cottage Grove Wisconsin. Amber pour with good off white head. Smells malty and is with a light but unsatisfying bitter finish. Weird fruity sweetness. No good for me... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2015 Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy cream colored head that recedes slowly with mild lacing. Color is a mostly clear rich amber with moderate carbonation streaming. Aroma: raisins, apricots, toffee, yeast rolls. Mouthfeel: light bodied with a bit of ale fluffiness and a mostly dry finish. Flavor: initial flavor is the sweet barley malt-- toffee, caramel, and white bread. The middle has some butterscotch and fruity esters with a earthy hop bite in the finish.
