This English influenced Ale uses generous amounts of Maris Otter, Crystal, and Dark Malts to produce a beer that is richly colored (it’s English influenced isn’t it?), yet smooth and easy to drink. The subtle influence of Goldings Hops provides the perfect balance to this beer’s malty backbone that embraces flavors of toast and caramel.

Copper brown with a creamy white head. Faint malty aroma and a slightly brassy toffee and malt taste.

On tap at the brewery. This was my fifth sample and the next one after the IPA, so my palate may have been a bit skewed on this one. Red color with a tiny off white head. Thin/medium bodied with a decent malt structure and a faint herbal flavor. Very little bitterness.This was kind of non descript for me, but still pleasant.

Draft @ the brewpub. Pours a dark reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy caramel aroma. Slightly roasted malty caramel flavor. Has a sweetish malty caramel finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Reddish amber color. Slightly roasted aroma. Flavor is slightly roasted malt with some balancing bitter. Not a brown nor a pale nor an ESB. Almost its own style. Amber?

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Nice clear amber color. Caramel, nutty, malty and slightly hoppy with a dry crisp finish.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 25, 2008
On tap at the Sac Brewfest. Pours beautiful deep amber with a thin oatmeal colored head. The aroma is a bit subdued with malty sweetness poking through. The flavor is that, plus a smooth, smokiness that ends cleanly.

riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Had at Rubicon. Pours a shade of amber. Aromas of toffee and floral and English Hops. Nice sweetness of toffee and caramel balanced by floral and herbal hop bitterness.

DYCSoccer17 (3705) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Half pint on tap as a guest at Rubicon Brewing Company in Sacramento. Aroma is a bit metallic, herbal, and floral. The aroma is quite faint and really fails to distinguish itself. Transparent amber-colored body with nice, frothy, tan head that leaves great lacing. Rather astringent to start, but it becomes more roasted, caramelly, and milky. Finishes a bit roasted with a very minor metallic hop kick. Not bad for the style, but the initial astringency makes this taste "off".
