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. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - FEB 17, 2009
On cask at the Southampton Publick House. Pours a clear orange gold with a small white head. Aroma of grains, light hops and yeast. Taste is a bit watery with hints of grains and light 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. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
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. austinpowers (2828) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Seemed like it used a swet caramel malt. I liked it a lot, though it had more hops than I’d like.

Draught at Waterfront Ale House, Bklyn. Amber with a frothy white head, leaving sheets of lacing. Straw and grainy malt aroma with a light fruitiness. Flavor of sweet cereal malts with notes of light citrus and grass. Couldn’t really note any mineral additions. Mildly bitter hop finish. Nothing exciting, but very drinkable nonetheless. A pretty good session ale, if anything. JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2009
On cask. Pours hazy gold, bit of an orange tint. Fluffy (for cask) white head.
Nose is lightly sweet pale malts, hops come through lightly with a bit of citrus. Hard to grab on to.
Malt comes through as lightly sweet and a bit doughy, with a nice, firm, spicy, citrusy hop note. Finish is lightly bitter, with a bit of an odd corny aftertaste. May have been bad tap lines. Strange.
Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied, very mild carbonation, even for cask. beerbill (3616) - 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. 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. 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...
