3.8/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A good solid yellow gold and absolutely crystal clear body is presented off the pour. Up top sits a shocking white head of about two fingers. Tiny slow crawling bubbles rise. I am kind of surprised by how incredibly clear this is. Some good stickiness on the glass.

Smells like an adjunct lager at first then gives way to minor toasty like malts, but also some old doughy like bread. Not particularly bitter or hoppy either. Kind of small nose also.

Taste is, kind of hop lemon bitter sensation with good baking cracker like bread at the end. Texture hints at crispness with a solid medium body. Finish also has grapefruit oil like qualities and flavor.

Overall kind of reminds me of an English bitter in a way but definitely more crisp and full. One to enjoy no problem.

3.8/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale, golden; pours a tiny head.

Aroma: Refreshing, citrus, hops, maybe grass even?

Taste: Light malt typical for English Ales, dominated by hops, which linger in the aftertaste as well. Fairly light and quite refreshing, but also robust with a good hop content and interesting floral flavours.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied, round.

Overall: A nice beer for a warm day. Nothing spectacular, but a solid beer.

Sampling right now on 9/19/14. Comes in a single 500ml (16.9 ounce) pretty green bottle for about $4.50. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a weissber vase glass.

Pours a pretty honey-apricot in color with a very thin white head. Just some light lacing is seen when sipped but not much at all. The aroma is of some grass, yeast with a touch of honey sweetness. The taste is pretty much the same with a slightly dry and very light bitter finish that doesn't last at all. After a few more sips, this one actually was better. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, a decent brew. After it warms up a bit, it is even better.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the glass. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: caramel malts, fruity, and bready.

Taste: grassy hops, bready and pale malts, and some lingering bitterness in the end.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, medium carbonation, and light to medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty nice EPA here folks. Not crazy about beer that comes in strange green shaped bottles, but this one was alright.

3.59/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a very lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint hints of apricot highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy off-white head that reduces to a large patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of biscuit malts with some light aromas of fruity yeast (hints of white grape). There is a light aroma of floral and grassy hops as well.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of biscuit and bready malts with some light flavors of fruity yeast (white grape) - which contributes a very light amount of sweetness which builds as the beer warms. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish but it does not linger for long.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Clean and crisp with just a hint of dryness in the finish.

O: With the nice flavors/aromas and low ABV, this is a very nice sessionable brew and one I could easily see myself enjoying - reminds me of sitting in a pub in London.

3.55/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From the antique looking green 25 oz. bottle labeled Organic English Ale with the number 10035 on the back label. Sampled on June 30, 2013.

The pour is golden amber with a foamy off-white head and a slight cloudy appearance. I think it looks quite good.

The aroma is very malt forward with butter and cream, yeast, and a slight herbal quality. Hops are soft.

The body is light to medium but quite creamy.

The taste has a malty beginning but a slightly lingering hop finish that becomes rather dry. It reminds more of German malts than English but it is refreshing enough.

3.53/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a hazy light straw color. Little head and minimal lacing. From bottle to Imperial Pint glass.

S: Malted barley and sweet with corn aromas and a nice English smell to it.

T: This has a nice sort of herbal taste to it with barley malt finish. A touch of celery and marjoram. Tastes almost exactly like English Ale wort smells. Clean taste with a sedimentary finish.

M: Clean, a touch creamy, with a slightly gritty finish.

D: Sessionable in feel and abv, but the flavor is not enough to make you want too much more. You know what you've had once you've had it, and you're ready to move on.
