JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Pale amber beer. The nose is a little bit sweet and malty. Softly sweet with a bit of soft sweet caramelly maltiness. Sort of a like a UK barleywine. There is a little bit of berryish character along with some lighter apricot notes. Its kind of sweet with a light lingering fruitiness. There is a touch of leathery character on the back.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 16, 2009
On tap in Feb 2008: Transparent dark copper pour has deep ruby hues and a fully-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of toasty nutty sweet caramel malt and some earthy hops. Body starts full and dark malty sweet with a lot of earthy bittering hops before a drier, toasty bitter finish. A little too bitter for the style, but still pretty drinkable.

AirForceHops (6875) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2013
6 oz. pour @ the brew pub. Deep garnet brown in a snifter. Not much head or lace. Nose is lots of caramel and a light fruit note. Malts are the main player and done well. The English malty taste is done correctly. In the finish its sweet with a light lingering fruitiness. The fruitiness is a product of a hop perhaps. I dont know much about brewing English style ale. Not yet anyhow. None of the 6.8 ABV this batch was said to be. This brew was rather drinkable and enjoyable.
