3.13/5  rDev -8.5%

Had this on tap at Moon River.

Poured a medium copper shade and with a small head. Smelled of slightly sweet malt. It was decent tasting, although a little thin and light.

The low ABV is not for me but probably works well with the southern heat. I moved on to something more hearty.

On-tap at Hotoberfest - sampled multiple times.

Pours a slightly hazy deep copper color with a one-finger slightly off-white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of smooth pale and caramel malts with solid amounts of floral hop aromas. Also present are mild amounts of toffee.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Moderately dry caramel malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by earthy and somewhat leafy hop flavors. The hops fade out a bit midway through the sip and the flavor profile sweetens with hints of mildly sweet toffee. The hops then return to carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with smooth carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall this was a solid beer for the style although nothing really seemed to pop. Still, it's worth a shot.

On-tap on 8/3/11. Poured into a Nonic Pint Glass.

Poured a clear, dark amber with a thin white head that fades to a thick ring and a slight haze. Aromas of crisp, sweet malt and earthy hops. Taste follows the nose closely, notes of sweet amber malt, a touch of toffee, and some earthy hops. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Solid English-style Ale, lots of flavor in a nice sessionable package.

On-tap at Moon River Brewing Company, Savannah, GA

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down quickly, leaving some lacing on the surface, which eventually faded away and left just a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of caramel and toasted malts in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of caramel and toasted malts along with some hints of malty sweetness. There is a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a low amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is very easy to drink and goes down smoothly.

Poured from a growler into a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, honey-gold coloring with a thin, filmy, surface coating of white head. Nose of subtle toffee and caramel, with citrus highlights, and hints of roasted notes. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with a solid dose of roasted toffee and caramel. There is a subtle bitterness in the backbone, with a steady roasted character, too. Smooth and light bodied, with a tangy sweet, slightly bitter aftertaste. The finish is smooth, light, and slightly dry. Very drinkable.

Served in a modified imperial pint, the beer is a hazy bronze with a skim of beige foam.

The aroma is of lightly roasted malts, something sweet like brown sugar and a bit of pine.

The beer has an earthy with moderate hops bitterness. I like the notes of toffee and pine. I would classify this more as an ESB than an English IPA.

Smooth silky mouth. Easy drinker, I had two. Fits the bill of a session beer.
