look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Brown 1 pint .9 fl. oz. Old fashioned medicine style bottle, blurb about being organic … no freshness date.

Appearance: Rich hazy golden brew with an appealing white lace that froths up real nice. Haze turns out to be just a mild chill haze, when the ale warms up to cellar temp it drops quite bright.

Smell: Hints of earth and mineral, ghost like sulfur notes are noticeable. Hops are light though with a raw earthened like twang. Whole rounded grain in the nose both sweet and dry grain.

Taste: Moderate body and a smooth, rounded and crisp carbonation which forms a quick flowing mouth feel. Porridge like grain sweetness with a homemade cracker like maltiness. Slight sulfur and mineral flavour from the water, earthy hop with a mild pungent lemony bitterness. Hint of smokiness from the copper kettle brewing. Bread crust like finishes with a semi clean lingering hop bitterness to boot.

Notes: Mmm … organic real ale, this is the good stuff for sure and a session beer at that. (1,021 characters)

Really solid beer. Light copper in color, fairly clear, and a nice thick head when poured with reckless abandon. Head dissolves to clinging lace. Aroma is very well balanced. I can smell the malt, which is a bit caramel-like. Hops comes out in a spicy and almost citrusy smell. Some yeast aroma also present, but I might notice it because I'm having a cheddar cheese sandwich along with the ale. Taste is mild, sweet malt and mild hops blend incredibly well. Slight metallic tang, mostly noticable in the finish. Beer is pretty lively on the tongue, even after a hard pour to create that big head. I believe this is going to become a regular in my refrigerator - fairly low alcohol and great taste combine to make this a wonderful thirst quencher for most occasions. (776 characters)

The organically grown hops clearly come through, the malts are there but this is an English Ale and what you would expect. Low carbonation but good lace. $2.95 for the 12oz oval bottle. (187 characters)

Presentation…12oz Green flask type bottle. Pours a nice light copper color. On the palate was a nearly perfect balance of malted barley and hops which brings out a very nice wholesome flavor, with a delicate character… Overall very enjoyable brew! (249 characters)

Light amber with a clinging lace. Fruity hop nose. Decently hop bittered with the malt to back it up. A very good English Pale! All the swill drinkers at the bar were impressed with the bottle. One woman even took it home, apparently she has a collection of beer bottles. Maybe she'll sandwich it between the Coors light and Bud light. (335 characters)
