Enjoyed at one of the few watering holes in my hometown that offers brews other than mass produced domestic brews...

A - Pours a crystal clear golden colour, thin layer of head with no retention or lacing.

S - Very sweet, sweet corn, hint of caramel and some leafy green hops.

T - Much like the nose, sweet corn dominating, buttered bread and caramel come through alongside a faint musty leafy hop.

M - Comes across a tad thin and watery and could use a carbonation lift.

O - Certainly not overly impressed by this offering and was hoping for something more along the lines of a traditional english ale with some stronger musty malts and earthy hops. This failed to deliver on both fronts and was rather disappointing.

A - poured a half finger head into a large wine glass - spectacular lacing with little bubbles that cascade down the side of the glass sparkling like the crest of a wave - subsided to a thin collar

S - earthy, floral hops, grainy, a bit funky

T - floral hops,mineral, barley, biscuit, sweeet bread

M - light to medium body with little carbonation - nice amount of bitterness - still relatively smooth

O - a very nice real ale that is wonderfully balanced and highly sessionable - I would get tired of drinking this all night

Got this as a birthday gift from a family member. Served in a Surly pint glass.

A - Finger-plus of white foam that settles to a thin cap, glass-coating lace. Transparent golden body.

S - Slightly skunky, floral hops, toasty and toffee malts, buttery, fruity English ale yeast.

T - Taste has more bitterness, as well as herbs, faint skunk, fruity esters, and bread and toffee malts. The amount of bitterness that lingers is actually quite surprising.

M - Mouthfeel is surprisingly gritty, with moderate carbonation. Somewhat watery, with a fairly resinous residual feel.

D - A largely forgettable English pale ale. The combination of skunk and butter is not a winner, and the puzzlingly harsh bitterness seems out-of-place for a session ale. I got about half the bottle down before I gave up and moved on to something better.

A: Pours a clear, reddish amber with a slightly rocky white head, average in size. Decent retention, with the head gradually diminishing to a bubbly cap of foam. Reasonable amount of lacing.

S: Toffee and biscuit malts with a whiff of grain, plus lots of hop aromas: fresh fruit, citrus, and an earthy, floral character. Faint mineral and yeast notes.

T: Sweet toffee malts mingle and quickly give way to biscuit malts with a particularly roasty character. Similarly, hops start lightly floral before woody earthiness and bitter citrus come through. Hints of slightly chalky minerality and yeastiness round out the roasty, citric swallow.

M: Light-to-medium body with low, creamy carbonation. The bitter finish is an enduring mix of roasted malts, hints of coffee, and fresh citrus - a bit lemony. Simply begs for another sip, in about the best way possible.

D: A good English pale ale on the bitter side thanks to an excellent distinctive finish, but still fairly balanced and exceptionally sessionable.

Pours a clear golden orange with decent head. Fingers of lace cling to the sides of the glass.

Smells earthy. Fruity. Slightly grassy hops. Like the unwashed taint of a thousand skunks.

At first blush I'd say it tastes like earwax. Hops are very grassy/floral. Pale malts. Chalky. Has an oddly skunky Heineken aspect to it. Dry aftertaste. Somewhat astringent. My will to live fades with every sip.

Served this 1 pint .09 oz. green bottle in a Sierra Nevada Hops glass. No date, but coded. The body was a turbid pale butterscotch color. There was heavy sediment in the bottle. The head was varied and white.

The smell was soft apple. Light grain aroma.

The taste was also of apples. Green but sweetness too. Lightly tart and gently bitter. Highly drinkable.

The mouthfeel was medium with a mild carbonation. This is not a beer I would seek out but I do like the English Ales.
