One of the seasonal specialties on tap at the brew house.

Golden amber in color with little head to speak of.

Pleasant aromas of light citrus and a nice malty aroma in the nose. Easy to take in and make you smile.

Taste speaks mainly of the malt character with a noble bitterness from the hops. Good ratio of maltiness to bitterness that makes this easy to drink. Bread and light caramel shine though in character and the background bitterness adds some depth.

Chewy mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Finish is bitter but really just a nice amount of caramel sweetness is left on the tongue.

This is a nice English bitter and is very easy to drink. In short this is a good session ale and one to come back for.

An interpretation of an old English classic - The session bitter. This brew starts with a nice caramel sweetness followed by a clean, yet pleasing hop bitterness & flavor, and finishes smooth, yet crisp. It's a great beer for the dog days of Summer, leaving your palate quenched, not overwhelmed.

An copper brew with a thin white head thas has decent lacing and retention. The smell does have a caramel, citrus and pine. The taste starts out with the sweet caramel and some other malts and than the hops come into it. The citrus hops is noticed first followed by the floral and finishes with pine. The mouthfeel is a nice clean crisp smooth drink and is worth a try. The above paragraph is North Peak's description of this beer and it is a very accurate description of the brew.
