Cask at Get Real New York. Deep amber pour. The nose is of lavender, hibiscus and stewed fruit as well. A little bit of astringency on the back of the soft pale malt. A bit of woodiness toward the finish as well. Decent flavour - but the palate isn’t quite right.

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
A dark maple amber ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, faint caramel malt and herbal British hops. In mouth, a light nutty and woody malt with herbaceous green hops, astringence, light maple notes, not bad. Cask at Get Real NY, March 19th 2011.

ChainGangGuy (4930) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Appearance: Modestly hazed, amberesque body with a scant, bubbly, off-white head. Smell: Scents of dark caramel and toffee, though not rather effusive, a goodly-sized pinch of dried herbs, and juniper giving an impression of gin. Taste: A touch of dry caramel and dry toffee, imparting just a bit of flavor, but no real sweetness joins an herbaceous taste of unsweetened iced tea and handful of grains. Slight pine. Light bitterness. Somewhat savory, faintly tart inclusion of juniper berries which carries through the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Light carbonation. Overall: It’s fine and suitable for a spiced-up English ale.

crossovert (13914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
On cask warm. It smells pretty great with some flowery lavender, the taste is a lot more tame and perhaps lacks the flavor I would have liked.

pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2011
This didn’t impress. Too harsh, too young. Could have been a good session ale.

3.6
jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2011
From a cast poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Nice light malty flavor with a quick finish.
