Pennsylvania

3.23/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Cask at The Farmers' Cabinet in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a dark golden copper color with amber edges and a thin half finger white head that immediately disappears.  No lacing.

Slightly earthy aroma with delicate grassy hops countered by sweet and spicy malt notes.   Slightly spicy with caramel, rye toffee and hazelnut.

Medium body with very soft carbonation and a nice balance of subtle hops and sweet malt notes.  Minimal dryness and not too bitter with soily hops countered by spicy rye, sweet caramel, toffee, nut and light fruit.  Not terribly complex but well balanced and very quaffable.

3.3/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Served up a clearish, dark amber-hued body with not so much a head as a pile of large, bone white bubbles.

Smell: Cheerfully fruity, like a good whiff of fresh-baked fruitcake, but there's also some cream caramel and herbs in there as well.

Taste: Modestly sweet, with malty flavors of toast and caramel. Nibble of tart apple skins. So far, it's not nearly as fruity as the aroma, not by a long shot. Leafy, herbal hops with a light, cleansing bitterness. Firmly dry, herbal-toned finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation.

Overall: Good enough, I guess.

3.13/5  rDev -9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

First had: on gravity cask at Farmers' Cabinet, Philly, PA

Pours a golden brown, slightly hazy, with a frothy white head. Not much in the aroma...nutty, toasty, some funk. Taste is grassy and bready up front, some light caramel; a load of farmhouse funk comes in afterward, finishing off with lots of hop bitterness and a decent drying effect. Light mouthfeel, a little stale and metallic, but pretty decent overall.

After reading some other reviews, I wonder if this was a bad cask, but whatever...I just go with what I had.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On cask at Max's today.

The beer pours a solid amber orange color with fair head retention and lacing. As soon as I enhaled, my first thought was the "burton snatch?" However, the sulphar aroma dissipated pretty quickly, leading to a light aroma of light sweet malt and cereal. The flavor profile replicates the nose, though I get a bit more on the palate than I did on the nose (thankfully). There's a hint of bitterness in the finish that is enjoyable. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a decent, slightly bitter finish. As one might expect, there's barely a hint of alcohol in this beer.

Mehhh... would certainly take this over BMC in a heartbeat, but otherwise this is pretty mundane stuff.

2.98/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

pours brownish non opaque with a slight head and a small amount of lacing

the nose is a bit of nice bread and brandy notes with a strange astringent chemical smell

taste is quite biscuit like with some bready warm malts and a hint of dry bitter flat hop character - this is taken back a bit by some more of that nasty astringent chemicalish tastes - does not finish very clean.

overall, some nice flavours but is significantly taken back by some baaad smelling and tasting strangeness

3.6/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

quite rich copper colour .... fresh hoppy smells
the taste is quite interesting, at first there is a wave of flavoured mineral water, but it is immediately followed by exotic fruits over a strongly caramelized flan (almost creme brulee) with some fresh hops on the side ...
this brew seems to have some potential .... the makers seem to put more emphasis on power than on elegance though ...
.... overall, a bit uneven, but a great canned ale (will have to check the bottle version one day) ....

3.58/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: light leather color, nice head that exhibits good retention. More carbonated than I'd expected for the style.

Smell: slightly soapy aroma, hints of toast and floral hops.

Taste: solid malt backbone, but balanced nicely. Hops are not too assertive, flavor-wise, but provide a long finish. Slight soapiness carries over from the nose.

Mouthfeel: smooth texture, better carbonated than I had anticipated

Drinkability: Quite nice, actually.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Purchased at Harrigan's bottle shop, Hunter Valley NSW.... $9 AUD.
a) Haze-free amber/burnt orange, good bubbling, off-white head, dense and rocky.
s) Nice English malts, slight citrus/marmalade, herbaceous.
f) Non-descript.... a bland version of the smell.
m) Too fizzy, thin front palate, medium mid palate, but no length.
d) Easy to knock a few back, but nothing to hold my interest for long.
For the money, not worth it.

500mL can purchased at the LCBO. A nice, malty English Pale that went well with starchy comfort food. Moderate carbonation, light mouthfeel, slightly roasted flavours (although not in the aroma), and a clean aftertaste. Very little in the way of hops, although enough to make it mildly refreshing. Fine, just fine.

A - Fairly clear copper coloured beer poured into a pint glass with a few centimetres of off white head that falls away rather quickly.
S - Toasty, nutty aroma backed up by some floral English hop notes.
T - The toasted, nuttiness is also present in the taste in a big way. Some fruit touches.
M - Quite watery, medium carbonation.
D - It's ok. Many others I'd drink before buying this again though.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

The colour is deep red-brown. The beige head sinks slowly into a thick lid.

There are notes of hops in the smell as some dark bread, treacle and some bitterness.

The taste includes notes of aroma hops and spices. Some growing anonymous bitterness. Fresh notes of fruits (apricots). The aftertaste is bitter with lots of dried fruits and some creamy matured flavours.

The carbonation is rather strong; small bubbles make some foam in the mouth. The liquid is a bit smooth.

Pours a dull copper colour. Good clarity. Decent off-white head that lasted a few minutes. Some lace.
Smell has a mild malty sweetness and the hops are slightly earthy and floral. Some fruitiness and graininess.
Taste is mild. Fruity character is more dominant. Hops are fairly mild. Only the slightest of lingering hop bitterness.
Somewhat watery mouthfeel. The carbonation is completely propping it up.
Its an OK beer but there are others in the style I'd rather drink.

Pours a nut brown colour with good head retention and some lacing. Nothing amazing on the nose, sweet, biscuits, and a slight amount of hops. The taste is sweet and malty with some hoppy citrus like tones. I cant see myself drinking this all the time but it is pretty quaffable.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Can: Poured a dark amber color ale with small foamy head with minimal retention and some fine lacing. Aroma of dry English malt is present but lacking in floral or fruity aspects. Taste of dry malt is interesting but the missing floral/fruity layer makes it a bit boring and the absence of any notable hops presence also make this as an average offering.
