COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Special Bitter. This beer is crafted in honor of our head brewer’s father, Dan. He’s a fan of English Ales and we brewed this beer to be an approachable, quaffable alternative to the more pungent Tree House offerings. This beer is an hommage to a great man - and fathers everywhere. As a rich, malty ale it is the perfect accompaniment to just about any meal.

16oz can from the one know as Smith. Attractive unfiltered copper-brown body. Big malt tones, caramel and amber, maybe some European malts as well. A pretty decent example of the style, but not exactly World Class stuff. Could use better hop balance and better attenuation.

VastActiv (8081) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2018
Can at hotel room in Worcester. Canned 07/02/2018... yesterday! Color is slightly cloudy brown with small white head. Aromas and flavors: Nuts, toffee, fruits, some chocolate and malts. Lots of toffee, very fresh but lacks malty backbone to be a really good bitter.

3.9
PhillyCraft (8318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Can, pours a maroon brown with small to medium head. Notes of plum, raisin, English malt, hops, bread, and light cherry. Kind of a Belgian ale meets an esb, but still enjoyable, just not traditonal by any means. Cheers

malrubius (3116) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 19, 2017
Can. Murky reddish amber with head that fizzes to ring. Cherry caramelized brown sugar earthy woody aroma. Fairly heavy caramelized brown sugar and cherry sweetness with woody herbal bitterness in dry finish. Medium light body but drinks heavier. Slick and fizzier than I usually like in a rich malty ale albeit low abv. Good. .

Can thanks to Vin. Pours crystal clear deep orange, medium creamy beige head, dissipates slowly, good lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, grain, biscuit, toast. Flavor is light sweet, light plus bitter. Grainy with toasted malt and noble hop notes. Medium body. Good enough.

3.5
AirForceHops (8178) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 2, 2017
16 oz. shared by Chalumeaux. Dirty orange/ Amber in color. Aroma shows bold amount of bread, citrus hops on top of a toffee and caramel base. The flavor starts bready with a toffee malty backbone with a slight sweet finish. The bitterness is weak strength and shows mostly sweet malts.

Overall, for the style it is exactly what it should. Easily drinkable, no problems what-so-ever.
