(draught at brewpub) hazy orange amber with generous off white head and nice lace. Aroma of caramel malt and slightly grassy hops. Flavor is light caramel malt and lightly grassy hops. Good body and balance. Crisp English style pale ale.

seymour (2057) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Tasted on tap at the brewery tasting room in a nonic pint glass. It poured a hazy amber/copper color with persistent white foam and sticky lace. Aromas of earthy and citrusy English hops, husky grain, rising bread dough, freshly baked whole-grain bread, mild but pleasing and historically-accurate. Delicious, true-to-style flavors, too: sweet malts, biscuits, crackers, toasted nuts, light caramel, fruity ale yeast, apricots, orange rind and zest. Light-medium carbonation, light-medium body, lingering fruity and bittersweet aftertaste. Tasty, easy-drinking, and well-balanced English ale, I would love to drink several at a sitting. Highly recommended.

phaleslu (10325) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Draft at the brewpub, served in an imperial pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange color with a finger of eggshell white head that settles into an uneven film and light trailing lace. Aroma of sweet malts, orange citrus, grass, and dry cereal grains. Flavor of sweet tangerine citrus, sweet and caramel malts, apricot, grass, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, juicy mouthfeel. I liked this way better than most EPAs with East Kent Goldings. Really nice job on this one.

vyvvy (6517) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Pours amber/orange with an off-white sudsy head. The aroma has fruitiness (especially nectar fruit), toasted malt on the dry side, spiciness and some earthy qualities. Medium crisp body with semi-soft frothy carbonation. The flavor starts with toasty malt, spicy hops, nectar fruits and a bit of a dryness to it. The finish adds some grassy and earthy hop character. Decent English pale.

On nitro at the source. Pours a hazy orange with a big full small bead nitro head. Aroma is wet bread. Taste is sweet pale malt, caramel, bread dough and mild hop spiciness. True to style all the way.

Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a reddish tinge and sticky white head. Nose is toasty malt and a grassy hops, light fruity notes. On tasting, orange blossom and fresh cut grass, toasty malts. Drying finish, medium bodied. Quite refreshing albeit a touch boring in terms of hops. Very well made.
