This is a great example of an English Bitter. A little on the high side for alcohol but very tasty and perfect hop balance. For those who grew up in England and miss a nice pint this one does the trick. I grab a growler when ever I am passing on my way home from an appointment. (which luckily is not every day) Clear and crisp no cloudy, head retention no up to my Yorkshire standards but very nice all the same.

A pleasant diversion from the HOP obsessed IPA craze that has the US in its grips right now.

Attractive yellow-amber with plenty of foam in the wine glass. Some fruity hop notes in the aroma. Sprightly and tangy mouthfeel.

Toasty malt flavors, but with a sharpish taste.A little cracker flavor, a little passionfruit. A pleasant gulp with a refreshing edge. From the 16 oz can purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor for $2.50.

Pours with a decent sized light tan head that settles into a nice lacing above a clear caramel copper colored beer that seems to have pretty decent carbonation.

Light citrus hops aroma, that seemed sort of like canned fruit for some reason with a added weird scent coming at the end, not bad or anything just very different and kind of light backgroundish.

A light citrus fruit taste with maybe mango and pears, seems like a different citrus hops taste then NWPA's have. This light citrusy fruit taste has a different kind of taste but in the same way I like the standard west coast hops taste I kind of liked this taste also, just seemed weird that it was the same and somehow different.

A light dryish aftertaste with some of the light fruit tastes hanging around with this medium bodied beer.

A little different taste but decent within itself, I personally think I'll stick to the basic west coast hops style IPA's and pale ales.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a coppery amber with a fine one finger off white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma malty and nutty with a hint of hops. Flavor is subdued biscuit malt, nuts and grassy hops. Although it tastes a bit thin at first sip, the finish and aftertaste bring out more pleasant biscuit malt and nuts. Light to medium bodied, but with a hint of creaminess. A bit underwhelming, but true to style and well made. A nice pleasant light pale ale in the British style.

**From notes.

Picked up a pint can at Fiamma Burger, decided to save for later.

Pours a lager color into amber body in glass. Head - half finger beige head, Lacing - slippery lacing, both last a while.

Mild citrus, hoppy, lemon, smells like the fruit cups or yellow sweet tarts you used to eat as a kid. Or crayon. Hint of moldy peach and banana.

Taste is just that, tart and dry. Hint or rusty lemon.

Subtle mouthfeel to a quirky wet finish. All the kick is in the aftertaste. Initial feel is pleasant and light. Citrus hints.

Overpaid. But an average lager indeed. Don't know what's British or stylish about it. But ok.
