Nitro tap. Pours a nice medium golden with a pure white creamy head and some lace. Aroma is mostly fruity, with some apricot, along with a nice malt backbone. Some earthy and herbal hops in the aroma and flaovr as well. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth. Went down way too fast. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of faint floral hops, malt, grain, cereal, and a hint of minerals. Poured copper/amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, rocky, off-white/tan head that lasted throughout. Clear. Sparkling. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, slight florals, grass, resin, slight grain, slight minerals, and wood. Medium body. Sticky, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, wood, grass, mineral finish is dry. A nice session bitter. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 20, 2007

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 (3981) - 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.

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. Capa (3298) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Clear orange with a great looking head. Aroma has light citrus and earthy hop notes, mild caramel malt, some toast. Flavor is much the same with noticeable, but thankfully restrained, bitterness. Easy going and quite refreshing. I wish this was easier to find. 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. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Tap @ Barcade. Golden color with a small head. Aroma is mellow white pepper with some butterscotch. Taste is creamy oak with some dried leaves. Clean without any tasty hops. PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 7, 2007
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.
