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.

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.

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 kinda like this stuff, I'm surprised. Just taking a break after a few heavy-IBU IPA's.

A= deep golden, nice big foamy white head, lots of lacing, some rimming.

S= interesting-- nice musty sweet malts, and notes of something like berry & watermelon.

T= slightly crisp, slightly to the watery side of average but very nice-- sweet malts, slightly grassy; lingering berry watermelon notes. Typical English hops in modest but balanced amount.

M= minimally astringent on tongue, with the lingering malts and berry-watermelon notes or whatever.

O= interesting offering, a decent blonde, more creative than many in the micro craft realm, surprisingly.

Brilliant gold with a finger and a half of pebbly white head. Good retention. Rings of lace at every gulp. It's a pretty beer, at least.

Deep, biscuity malt, some caramel, hay-like hops.

Again, sweet malt with some hay-like hops.

Medium-heavy with ample carbonation.

A simple, quaffable ale. Nothing too spectacular, but then again, it isn't trying to be.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

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 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A - Pours a murky copper orange color, with a thin just off-white head that's a finger tall. Retention is average. Pretty generic.

S - Crystal malt and some generic floral hops notes make up the majority of the nose. There's a light toasty notes. Seems well balanced, though a bit underwhelming.

T - Really simple, though it's balanced. Really the only notes present are your basic pale/caramel malt and the generic hops. It's hard to really find anything else going on. It's mild and a bit watery.

M - Coarse, and light bodied. Good given the style.

D - It's just too simple to be very good. It's o.k. Nothing more, nothing less.

Very Average in my opinion! Have quite a few diff. styles of these brews and this one just not it for me. Anyway smell is quite light and not very noticeable the taste is light not what to expect from a Pale Ale anyway light in the mouth goes down smooth easy drinking brew so buy it, that's all up to you!

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 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.
