A- Poured from the tap at Lucky Devils on Hollywood Blvd. A 1 finger of proteinaceous beige foam was well retained as the beer sat and warmed. Some traces of lacing decorated the glass as the liquid volume went down. The body was an optically clear dark copper-amber with some slow bubbles rising from the depths.
S- Nose is mild, based on crackerlike toasted malts, laced with aromas of oak and a non-offensive mild metallic note. No real hop aroma. This sets the stage for a very drinkable beer.
T- This beer is bigger on the tongue than in the nose. Big toasted malts establish a canvas painted with toasted oak, hints of low alpha hops (just enough to balance the beer), and a barely perceptible nuance of fruity ester. Starts out malty, but finishes dry.
M- A medium body leveraged with a substantial but soft carbonation. A mild astringency from the oak aging is evident.
O- A very drinkable, nay, sessionable brew. I could drink these all day long!

A - Translucent amber with magical disappearing head.
S - Big english malt presence with a some piny hops.
T - Buttery caramel malt with some citrus hops but not bitter. Toffee.
M - Crisp carbonation and easy going on the way down. It's really refreshing for an amber ale.
O - It's a very solid easy drinking ale that packs a nice clean flavour.

Copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma of pine, caramels, biscuit malt, condiments, charred oak and licorice.
Taste follows nose. Pleasant flavor with notes of toasted malt, peppery yeast, caramel, charred oak, pine, licorice, mild herbal and tangy citrusy, English hops and green apples. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Nice American take on English bitter, tasty but still mellow. Malty but well balanced with a relatively decent amount of hops.
