Sample at Bob's Bar. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lace. Aroma of roast malt, mild hops and fruit. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, caramel malt and a bit of citrus. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can. This beer is lighter in color than i expected, more gold than the amber color of so many bitters.Light noble hop aroma. Dry in the flavor where the malt is out front, as it should be. A mineral quality here. Moderately well hopped in the flavor, i taste the hops more than smell them in this beer. Not as amazing as the keller pils, but a solid session beer.

Can Poured clear with nice white head that lasts and sticks to glass. Aroma is at first diacetyl, then apples and apple butter. Soft, gentle cask silken, low carbonation. Diacetyl vanishes in the palate, which is balanced, smooth, and has a hint of hop in the finish. Sessionable

wlajwl (7289) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2016
Aroma is citrus/fruit/hops and biscuit/English malts. The flavor is biscuit/English malts, citrus, fruit, bread and a is of tartan mild bitterness in the finish.

Atom (2619) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2016
On tap at summit, pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Dry malt and light hop aroma. Overall very dry grain with a light sweetness from the malt, with a sharp bitterness on the finish. Similar in many was to their Keller.

Really disappointed. Did not expect something with "London Ale" in the title to have US and NZ hop flavor profile. I guess the "west" in the title meant really, really, really, west, like across the ocean west. Will not buy again.

Shot (575) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2016
Can. Pours hazy gold with a thin sticky white head that dissipates to a clumpy film. Aromas of floral hops and sweet malt. Slight fruity flavor, cut grass, biscuit and floral hops. Slight citrusy finish. Very crisp and bone dry. Clean finish. Really a very nice bitter.

Nuffield (4252) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Light, clear yellow with white head. Light flavor, and someone I was with suggested that this is "like a vinaigrette". Dull, dull. (Poured at the Ale Jail beer festival, St. Paul)

MNAle (242) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Nice floral, fruity, mildly citrus aroma. Clear golden-amber, with a slightly off-white 1/2 inch head. Moderate to light carbonation visible. A thicker mouth feel than I would have expected for the style, but still a light body. Taste is malts (not overly sweet), bread, nicely balanced with the hops. The hops flavor is complex, hard to pin down, but very good. Bitter and clean finish. Bitterness in the aftertaste that lingers a bit. The lower ABV means this beer can be enjoyed over and evening, and the sophisticated interplay of the hops and malts will keep the evening interesting.
