Our flagship. This is a classic British pale ale with a nod to the legendary beers of Burton-on-Trent. Copper-colored, dry, clean, and crisp with lots of late hop taste, in an appetizing complex with ale fruitiness from imported Hampshire yeast. Original gravity - 1047; alcohol by volume - 4.5%; two row English malt (pale, crystal and chocolate); Cascade, Mt. Hood, Tettnang and Fuggle Hops.

Looks good but tastes like cardboard and old malt.

I was not overly impressed. In fact, it seemed to personify mediocrity in every way...

12 oz bottle - no date

medium copper color, thin white head. the aroma is a bit stale, earthy. the taste is a bit similar. bready, no hop flavor at all. medium body and carbonation.

I have a feeling this bottle might be quite old, but no way to know.

12 oz bottle from beer of the every other month shipment poured into a tulip glass.

A - very clear brownish copper body with a very thin head. Not good lacing but might be more to do with choice of used glass.

N - toffee and baked bread with a little fruity or spicy hops. Buttery yeast as well.

T - no surprises following the smell. Not overly bitter. More malt than hops but with an interesting flavor profile. Sweet and grassy and a little fruity. Ring wood buttery yeast flavor. Not bad here.

M -bubbly and a little hot? Not watery but not heavy at all.

O - pretty good English style. Cheers!
