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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tumbler: color is a dark copper, transparent, fine bubbled efferevesence; head is off white, presents 1/2 inch thick then dissipates quickly to a ring and some fine froth.

Smell is very pleasant, begins with a lightly sweet malt presence, coming through as toffee and caramel, but no over sweet; hop earthiness follows, light grass.

Taste is also very good: sweet malt presents first, fairly crisp and clean flavors, maltiness is toffee and caramel, though light, some subtle fruitiness from the ale fermentation provides a sweeter character; hops are crisp, nicely bitter with a flavor of grass and earth.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing: very appropriate levels of carbonation and nice lingering malt sweetness and hop drying qualities.

Overall, this is a a great english style pale ale, very crisp, great aroma and flavor and mouth presence.
