A pale orange pour. Has a sweet malt aroma. Has sweet malt, citrus hop, and spices in taste. Malty aftertaste as opposed to hops. alexsdad06 (10482) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have faded hops, grass, toasted malts, caramel. I am curious as to the age of this. Just seems a bit past its prime. Mild bitterness to the finish. jmohno (1634) - Iowa, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Clear orangish gold. Nice looking. Light head, light lace, retains some nice froth. Malty,sweet aroma,hop sweetness? Mint,light pine.Slight citrus. Subtle fruit, herbal,subtle hop aroma overall but fairly pungent at the same time, but good general aroma.
Taste is a rich malt,minerally,hops noble like, kinda grapefruity bitter with some harsh hard water. Kinda like its bitter abrubtness harsh bitter finish. Pretty bitter,lingers . Definatley a burton ipa. Pretty decent. Exceded my low expectations of my first impression of this never trying this unkowning brand before. dredmond (179) - Long Island, New York, USA - NOV 11, 2013

Drought. Amber color with loight beige faomy head, doughy aroma with a bit of hops, sweetish taste with even less hops! Low carbonation and abrupt finish; very strange for an IPA!

Very British, especially the hops. Clear amber color. Average head. Lots of flavor for 6.5% ABV. 12 ounce bottle. MaBeer1972 (2086) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Single bottle from Manchester W&L. Pours out a light reddish golden color. Thin head that fades. Malty aromas. Flavor is also on the malty side with distinct bubblegum notes. Some spice. Soft texture. otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Copper orange under a massive off white creamy head which fades slowly with rocky patches. Lace sticks in massive clumps to the sides of the glass. Swirls messy and clumpy.

Minerals, crackers, English biscuits and toast. Greenery and shrubbery. Dry and crisp overall. Hint of rustic tree back and grain husks. Generic bitter citrus skins on top.
Bitter and crisp and crunchy and toasty and rindy. Hard minerals underneath support gentle sweetness of cereal breads in the middle. Whisper of apple flesh sweetness in the mouthfeel. Green grass leaves. Lingering bitterness in the back of my throat. Medium to medium-light weight with a crisp parching body. Sesame and poppy seed crackers. Earthy, nutty, toasty, and crunchy.
A fabulous example of the traditional Burton Baton style Pale Ale and IPA that originated in Burton on Trent England. Dry and mineralistic, hoppy and rustic, apple orchards and harvested grains. Never doubt the brewing expertise of the fine folks at Southampton Publick House. Delicious!
12oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Totally clear orange color. Thin off-white head. No lace sticks. Caramel malty nose, light sweet, light spicy toasty malt. Lighter, crisp carbonation, sticky texture. Medium-plus body. Moderate bitter taste. Light sweet. Some metallic. Not very impressed by this. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded rather quickly. The nose is toasty malt with a little caramel and English hops. The flavor is just lightly bitter but it balances the light residual sweetness from the toasty malt pretty well. Some moderate lingering bitterness followed by toasty and lightly husky grain. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, a little huskiness to the texture. Decent beer I suppose, but not my style as far as IPAs go.
