3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazey amber pour; thin tan head. Nothing overpowering in the aroma, mostly roasted malts and some piney/herbal hop notes. Flavor is quite good...robust and malty, but not sweet. Toasted malt aftertaste with nice hop bitterness for balance. Crisp and refreshing while still full-bodied. Doesn’t really scream "English Style" to me, but as an "Amber Ale", it’s good.
Medium brown color with a small foamy off white head. Caramel malt aroma with a heavy candied fruit sweetness. Light, dough and caramel malt flavor with a bittersweet tingle that fades to a long sweet, roasty, brown sugar finish. Medium bodied with a smooth palate and light carbonation. One of my favorites.

Bottle. Deep amber body with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, apricot and toasted grain The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Some English characteristics, especially the caramel, but not a lot. Too sweet. Nephilium (1818) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Aroma is sweet caramel and biscuit, pours a clear amber/brown with a dusting of light brown head. This has some nut and roast notes, but is predominantly sweet caramel. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky, with a sweet finish. I’d prefer a bit more roast and dryness, but it’s not bad. Jrwhitney6 (496) - - MAY 24, 2016
Beer of month club. Pours a rich copper with thin white head - very attractive. Nose is a little odd - a lot going on - some malt, lemon zest, and a V-8 like smell, too. Taste is malt, caramel, and some bitterness on the finish. Pretty good.

Deep amber beer with a medium foamy off white head. Subtle nose of toasted bread, light caramel, and candied nuts. Flavor is a bit more pronounced with a sweet toffee base overlaid with some scorched nuts and toast finishing with a slightly acrid bitterness. Pretty good. climberbob (458) - Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2016
