Pours a nice reddish brown with a decent off white head. Malty smell and taste to this one. More so than expected. It's kinda caramel/vanilla like. Fairly full body. Nice and smooth. Goes down easy. This is a good stand alone session beer or I could definitely drink this one with a snack or even a meal.

Serving type: on-tap

On draft at B&B Burger & Beer in Las Vegas.

Amber copper body with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with sweet breads and a touch of fruit. More malt than hop character. A bit too sweet for my liking. A tad syrupy. Fairly light in body with light bitterness in the finish. Mediocre.

clear, amber color beer served in a pint glass from a 12oz brown bottle.
sweet and slightly buttery aroma, very English smelling.
sweet caramel and toffee with some subtle bittering on the finish.
crisp, light and refeshing beer that's easy to drink.
reminds me of something Fullers would brew and is a very fine example of an American brewery's take on the style.

A-Pours a clear, deep copper color. Minimal head. Head is off-white but it barely even forms. The outer ring of foam leaves stringy lacing.

S-Fruity esters and sweet bread with some very light toffee and a caramel presence. Light floral hoppiness.

T-A mellow, malty flavor that kicks into an extra gear during the finish with a (still mellow) crescendo. Toffee, caramel and fruity yeast. Then the second wave of flavor brings some hoppiness that I find to be floral. Also some cereal and honey.

M-Medium bodied, leaning towards the lighter side. Almost zero bitterness. Moderate carbonation.

O/D-A very easy going beer. It's relaxed and sessionable. I feel as though I wouldn't have appreciated it earlier in my beer drinking experience. I enjoy the subtle nuances of this beer.
