3.79/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

eyes...
great foam cap on this one, a full 2 fingers of white stuff, active in the carbonation department keeping the head quite akimbo, clear to look through with a slight orange tint, lacing is great, a really nice looking glass of suds

nose...
faint malt and grain, working hard to get anything substantial here, some sweetness but mostly a vast dessert of blandness

taste etc...
it reminds me of something like old speckled hen on a hand pump... except with a little more body, it has just a smidgen of everything, mild bitterness, definite residue of sweetness on the tongue from the molasses, the carbonation actually lingers a bit which is interesting, the
molasses seem to becoming more of a player as I sip on, this drinks easy and smooth, I could easily envision this while watching a game at the local pub enjoying some bangers and mash (hey, I could have went for fish n chips but that would be even more hack) or when you
are drunk enough the pickled eggs in that jar at the other end of the bar, this is a really nicely balanced beer with definitely a tip of the dumb colonial hat to modern hops (thankfully the brewer was subdued enough in this department, as over hopping would have killed this), nice
full sensation in the mouth that has just the right amount of heft going on

verdict?
really enjoyable and super easy drinking (even for the higher ABV), almost too easy to knock these back

7/11 Pours medium amber, orange rust tinged, white foam climbs up the side. Malty resiny nose. Taste opens hoppy, becomes sour, then evolves into a pine/molasses blend. Natural tree flavor, with molasses backstop. Great flavor balance, loads of character.

- Old english stock ale brewed with molasses.

A: In a chalice a mushroomy large beige crown of 3 inches plus sits above a tarnished oxidized orange colored body of good clarity revealing mid-size carbonation bubbles in heavy concentration. Head retention is superb, very lengthy in its stay, slowly pitting on the surface caving to a mountainous structure. Thick spongy coating for lace. very good presentation.

S: On the nose was fresh wet sticky pine and sweet molasses. Soft caramel toasted bread fresh from the oven with some hints of fresh greenery (shrubery) in the middle. Fairly aggressive hopping aroma per style.

T: Flavor was sweet caramel-pine, citrusy hops and floral notes. Sweet molasses upfront with some sweet chocolate and alcohol notes. The beer progresses to a nice bittering effect, like an ESB, piney hop attributes, dry caramel-scotch, with a dried earthy bittering. Some fresh greenery, dried molasses, and dry toasted sweetness really stands out. Piney hops on the finish.

M: Full bodied, honey consistency, dry toasty mash, carbonation is light to medium in strength.

O: Overall a very good hoppy and piney character, drinks like an ESB and a worthy tribute to my home state. Well balanced, nice deep malty lush body, with good piney hops paying tribute to the pine barrens of NJ.
