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.
