This pours glassy copper and has a nice fluffy off-white head. There is also a nice amount of lacing and retention to this beer. There is a lot of malt on the nose. My first impression of the taste is big bitterness. I really like how the toasty malts are preempted by this massive amount of bitterness. The malt flavor does come through, and this beer almost reminds me of a red ale, however, the malt is slightly more mild and bready. This medium bodied beer finishes off crisp and refreshing. This is a great English Pale Ale that could pass as an English Bitter.

The lost beer reviews of Spring Break 2012, #1

Dark reddish amber body, smallish off-white head.

Earthy and bready aroma. Pleasant, but not assertive enough.

Taste is earthy, bready, and a dollop of caramel.

Very creamy medium plus mouthfeel.

A very nice English style ale, a pleasant surprise overall.

A: half finger head on a clear amber body. Not what I was expecting from the style.

S: fairly hoppy with notes including musty, earthy and mildly floral notes. malts in the background.

T: caramel malts with a wet sock/mustly hop flavor. A little tangy in the finish as well as a little bitter.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: Not really what I was expecting from this one but still a good beer.

Serving type: on-tap

This was my favorite offering by the Orlando Brewing Co. The beer poured clear copper color with an decent white head that left a good lacing on the glass. The smell was mostly bitter hops and malt. The taste carried much the same. The mouthfeel was a nice medium body with good carbonation. This is a great beer for Orlando to build on.

The beer was served on-tap at the Orlando Brewing tasting room, and served in a pint glass. The beer is a light copper coloring with a thin, white head that settles and disperses. The nose is a slight dark caramel malt, and even a bit of chocolate. Flavors are a bit of coffee and chocolate malt, with a slight bittering from hops at the end, with a drying sensation. The body is a little light and crisp, and leaves a good lacing along the glass. There is a dry finish after the aftertaste that is slight citrus, bitter coffee, and dry hops. Very tasty.

12 oz. bottle tried 10 Feb 2010. Gift from M, thanks!

Served in a Sierra Nevada Celebration shaker pint. Medium tight foramy off white head. Medium carbonation. Aroma is somehow briny and sweet, reminiscent of saltwater taffy, caramel, some earthiness. Nutty, a bit astringent. Toasty sweet malts. Mild ethanol. Bittersweet finish. Aftertaste is like toasted whole wheat bread. Medium to light body.

Nothing to get too excited about.

The color is a fairly deep yellow-amber. A nice, compact head retains quite well, and a consistent thick foam remains the entire way, leaving some nice rings of lacing partway down the glass.
There's a fair hops and malt balance in the aroma with the addition of a slight caramel sweetness. The aroma is more malt than hops and a little light with a subtle earthy note.
Hops flavor really comes up to the forefront, and is surprisingly strong given the aroma. The balance in the flavor is better than I got on the nose, and the fresh hops taste really makes for a good EPA. There's a gentle sweetness underlying and a good grains flavor as well.
This one was really quite smooth and crisp with just a bit of a bite from a moderate carbonation. Body is medium.
