Amber gold color, moderate malt and field aroma. An easy drinking, relatively light beer with some crispness, flowers, hops, grains. Not too special but not bad either...a decent session beer. thornecb (5916) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours amber into a shaker. Off-white head with fair retention. Bitter and thin, but refreshing. Hangover (1136) - oxford, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Clear dark amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is very malty and very English. Rich, malty flavor with some toast/bread, medium sweetness and a creamy body. Woodsy finish, malty and slighly bitter. This is a very smooth brew and I’m glad I have 5 more of these to enjoy. Finhead (1763) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
A clear amber-orange pour with an off-white head. The nose has an herbal and pine hop aroma with some light bread malt. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bittersweet initial taste that grows more bitter into a dry finish.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 On draft at Oldsmar Tap House. Poured a murky mango color. Very thick, creamy white head, and very creamy lacing. Malty corn aromas, with a slight hop profile. Definitely an English ale. Slight acidic hop undertones, big malty body, some citrus. Decent flavor. Fully body, quite drinkable. Watery finish. Enjoyable. malrubius (2900) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2008
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Clear copper with nice head and lace. Honey sweet aroma with mild lemon and soap, very much like a pale lager. Medium honey sweetness with mild toastiness and slight apricot fruitness. Very mild bitterness. Lingering sweet finish. Medium-light body and medium-low carbo. Tastes like a well-made and very fresh. But tastes more like a pale lager than a pale ale. Lacks the fruity spicy bitterness of an ale. As it warms up, though, it gains a lot more ale-like character, bitterness and complexity. Pretty good, but definitely let it warm up. Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured with a small, off-white head, that diminished to hardly anything at all. Body was mostly clear and sparkling, with a slight haze, and a beautiful dark-orange color. No real lacing to speak of. Aroma wasn’t anything special... lightly hoppy. Nice on the palate, with a light to medium body, slightly oily, and lively carbonation. Very nice flavor that starts off bitter and acidic, and finishes off... bitter, of course, but heavier hops than would have been expected. Overall, a very nice pale ale that I would easily drink again. rjplumer (1098) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2011
This had three things going for it(In my opinion). It’s from New England, favorite ale style and I’m a American Civil War history buff. This one doesn’t let me down. It’s a nice medium brown color with your typical head. has a nice brisk mild fruity aroma. The taste is very similiar with a touch of sourness which finishes on the dry side. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain would approve I’m sure. Drake (13739) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. That’s Virginia, where someone located in the Capitol of the Confederacy gave label approval to a label featuring a Union general. It seems reconciliation truly is complete. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates leaving a few specks of lacing. Aroma of big caramel and butterscotch notes and floral hops. The taste is floral hops, caramel, some toastiness and a bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty drinkable.
