on tap, SHPH night, Blind Tiger. Golden/light orange in color with a medium head. Aroma is floral hops, caramel, with notes of fruit. Taste is fruity, orange, with a good amount of floral hop character. Lightly bitter finish that lingers nicely. Haven’t had that many of these but seemed to be pretty well made.

Hand-bottle from Dickinsonbeer sampled in Nov. 2006: Pours a clear bright golden with a thin covering of off-white lightly-lacing head. Interestingly sweet, floral lavender and peppery English hoppy aroma. Body starts lightly sweet, drying quickly with a touch of bready yeast and floral English hops. Fairly true to style but unique.

Tap at Hop Devil Grill: Orangey, light copper pour with an off-white film. The aroma is a bit fruity with hints of cherries & peach. Simple flavor, with only a light herbal bitterness. Mainly has a Pale malt profile, with a late grainy like bitterness. I had this after an IIPA, so maybe the bitterness is more pronounced than I perceived it to be. Still, it’s somewhat simple. scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Tap at SPH - Amber, off white creamy head. Lightly sour nose of florals, citrus, and hints of sweet malt. Flavor held notes of light citric and floral bitterness throughout. Light bodied, light carbonation, dry, soft hoppy finish. Nice rendition and very drinkable... beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 17, 2007
On tap at the Publick House. Arrived at the table a clear coppery gold with no head. After a few sips, I swirled the beer in an effort to resuscitate the head, but each attempt ended in failure. Very light earthy aroma with some malt noted as well. Flavor is a bit malty at the beginning, followed by a subtle, dry, hoppy finish. Not an exciting beer, but then again most English bitters are pretty dull, and this one is better than most.

Poured a clear light amber color with a small off-white head. Malty caramel aroma with earthy hops underneath. The flavor was malty with a light citrus/acidic middle and finish. There was a mild bitterness on the finish. Semi-dry with a light to medium body. beastiefan2k (3978) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Tap at the Publick House, poured into a pint glass. When I think of the Britsh this is the beer that comes to mind. First of all its just slightly dark pale colored with a mediocre head. So at first a bore, but just not boring enough where someone may actually find this to be a "nice" looking beer. The beer itself screams "the British are coming, the British are coming." It is rather harsh, i almost feel like rocks are scratching my throat. Yet in a subtle way, where you want to appreciate its texture. It has a slight fruity aspect but a british fruitiness, meaning no sweetness or anything tasty. And very dry of course, where would the Brits be without that dryness. Leaves a nice long bitter aftertaste, just so you remember you are drinking a British ale. So nice job recreating something a merry old chap would love.

Tap at SPH. Pale golden beer, light haze. Nice earthy hoppy aroma over crisp apple/pear fruitiness. Nice minerally flavour adds a crispness that accents the earthy/woody hops. Lean malts just back up the crisp bitterness. Flavour is slightly leafy with a light appley fruitiness. Designed for knocking off pint after pint. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Tap at the Blind Tiger. Very pale pour, slight hop aroma, a little earthy but pretty absent mostly. Watery and light in the mouth with subtle hops.
