3.1/5  rDev +0.3%

Appearance: Pours out a clear, mirthfully golden body with a finger's worth of creamyish white foam. Fair lace deposits on the descent.

Smell: Pale malted barley with a distant breadiness with low, low hints of bruised apricots, florals, and sweet lemon. A mild aroma overall.

Taste: Faintly bready, though sufficiently sweet pale malts. Apricot jelly and a light infusion of citrus arrive simultaneously, along with a light bitterness. Lightly sweetish, fruity through the finish. As with the aroma and as one might anticipate from the aroma, there's just not much going on here.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not bad, no, though it failed to satisfy.

3.5/5  rDev +13.3%

Available in their new Fall Craft Pack.

A - Poured out a clear, golden orange color with a one-finger, rocky, white head of foam. It left some patchy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled earthy and malty with a touch of floral notes.

T - Butterscotch and caramel flavor like most English ales with some citrusy hop bite. Very mild bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice English style ale. Another Dundee beer that is sessionable and could make a good gateway beer.

3.35/5  rDev +8.4%

Pours a pale hazed copper orange hue with a bright white head forming thick and dwindling down at a moderate pace. Aroma has a pleasant rolling biscuit malt profile with hints of apricot spread, citrus, and herbacous leaves. Flavor is a clean drinking session English style pale ale. Light bodied last carbonation slight oily mouthfeel nothing bad to say.

3.53/5  rDev +14.2%

i thought this was a much better beer than the people here are giving credit for. it pours clear and boring, a little copper in color, but too flat in luster for that, and with only a quarter inch of white fading head. the smell was also a little pedestrian, with english caramel and pale malts being the most visible, and some hop i cant immediatey identify, but its bitter and ancient, some goldings or something. the flavor is the same, but the finish makes this beer, its dry and clean as a palace floor, with some low key hops crackling over the palate. love the way this feels, bubbly carbonation above the dry finish, and a plenty drinkable light medium body. some toasty notes to wash it down, this was a good offering from dundee, not spectacular, but a step in the right direction for sure. the star of the most recent mixed box.

3.9/5  rDev +26.2%

The beer pours a beautiful dark golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light and fruity pale malt scent along with a bit of yeast esters and a bit of English hops. It's pretty tame while showcasing the malts. The taste is good. It has a very quaffable pale and Munich malt flavor. It's a tad sweet with a touch of English hops in the finish. It goes down easy with minimal yeast fruitiness that only enhances the taste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It's light and flavorful while being well balanced and quite quaffable.

A new beer in the mixed sampler 12 pack. Pours a light golden color, pretty good amount of carbonation. Faint hop aroma. Nice mouthfeel, medium bodied, surprisingly refreshing. Some hops rise through, maybe a bit of a citrus or lemon tinge, with a nice clean finish. Not the most exciting of styles, but this is a pretty damn good beer. Sipped it down pretty quick and looking forward to the next one of these in the pack.

When I am not drinking beer from a CAN and I am at home, I do not mind bottles. I am somewhat curious to try the entire Dundee oeuvre and I recently found singles of most of the ones that I have not previously reviewed.

From the bottle: "Classic and Clean"; "Back in merry olde England, the roadside inns were abuzz with banter and smiling glances from buxom barmaids - barmaids who we might add, brewed the ale they served. In their honor, our brewers treat each batch of Dundee English-Style Ale they brew with the same love and care as the barmaids of old, combining pale and caramel malts with Columbus and Cascade hops for a malty, slightly sweet finish. Now, if only they'd stop dressing like barmaids ...

I like it when a busty bamaid winks at me while drawing me a cask ale. Here, she's even stirring the pot all the while! My pour netted me just over a finger of dense, tawny head with great retention. Color was a deep golden-amber with NE-quality clarity and lots of carbonation in evidence. Nose was very malty-sweet. Mouthfeel was medium and it was a very pleasant beer to drink. It was on the sweet side, but not so much as to be overwhelming. I also got some great lacing beginning to appear in the glass. Finish was semi-sweet but quite quaffable and satisfying. Once again, at the price point, it was definitely worthwhile.

3.09/5  rDev 0%

Big slightly off white head slow recedes above a clear bright golden well carbonated beer.

Light lightly roasted grain malts lend an earthiness to the aroma.

Light grain malts taste with just a bit of grassiness or something similar to that coming through as well.

A light dry aftertaste without much taste of anything hanging around with this light bodied beer.

A very light beer without a unpleasant aftertaste like a lot of lighter American beers have.

3.39/5  rDev +9.7%

12 oz bottle.

Pours a medium amber with a large, frothy, off-white head.

Aroma: a bit unpleasant: musty and earthy. {a 2nd tasting in Jan. 2012 had a mildly pleasant aroma, with no musty aspect - rating adjusted accordingly].

Initially, the flavor is quite subtle, but a good malty mix comes in mid-taste and lingers. Some hop presence, although less than suggested by the aroma.

M: light-medium body; good carbonation; admirably smooth.

O - a decent if unexceptional English PA, with one sample marred by a rather poor aroma.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is malty and somewhat sweet. Taste is mild, malts up front, some biscuty notes, very lightly hopped. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

3.48/5  rDev +12.6%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle sampled on November 18, 2011. It has a handsome looking medium amber pour with lively carbonation that leads to a long-lasting head and loads of lacing. The aroma has vague malts, slightly bolder hops, but a lot of bread and biscuit. The body is thin to medium. There is an odd sort of Capryclic acidity in it with a faint sweet malt-sharp bitter balance. It was not what I had hoped. That English water really makes the difference.

3.48/5  rDev +12.6%

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden color with a light haze and a billowy white head. The head fades fast to give a lighter amount of lacing.

Smell – The aromas are relatively light, but consist of a bread and caramel aroma.

Taste – A malty flavor meets the tongue. A little bit of caramel sweetness is present up front and intensifies as the flavor moves toward the middle. The breadiness forms a base but toward the middle the caramel starts to fade as a lighter yeasty flavor begins working its way into the tongue. This flavor remains mild and mixes with the bread and a very light citrus flavor at the end which bring the taste to its finish.

Mouthfeel – Medium to just above medium in body with a average level of carbonation. The body suits the abv and malty flavors well. Not bad for the style; it’s very drinkable.

Overall – Not too bad. The beer is easy to drink, has great price, and has a good flavor without being too high in abv. A good session.

I poured the bottle into a glass and it has a golden color with a very slight cloudiness. The smell is reminds me a lot like Harp. The taste is very good. It has a slight wheat taste with a great after taste. The beer is very smooth and really easy to drink. Over all this is a good beer, but isnt anything I would go out of my way to get.

2.3/5  rDev -25.6%

A: pours super light blonde, white head, small bubbles some lacing on glass, plenty of clarity

S: nose has sour grain smell, musty hops, and lemon. Something doesn't smell right...

T: taste matches the nose spot on, there is a weird grainy must that comes through with sharp hop character. Terrible balance.

MF: sharp, high carbonation, light body

O: not that great, not worth trying.. too many other better things available to settle with this.

12 oz brown bottle from the winter variety pack. poured into my SA perfect pint, the beer is gold with a slight chill haze. It has a decent off-white head.

Nose of grains, a hint of caramel and grass.

The taste is mild with some sweetness and just of touch of hop bitterness. Grainy with some mild fruit (plum and apple) notes. The hops are more floral than citrus or pine. That kind of surprised me because the bottles say they use cascades. No off, odd or old notes. A tad boring but seems well made.

The mouth is decent with a bit of heft and just above mid-range carbonation.

I'm not sure I would reach for one on a regular basis, but would certainly not turn one down if offered.
