On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy orange with a short-lived white head. Aroma is of ripe fruit, some citrus notes and caramel. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Caramel and biscuit malt, herbal and piney hops and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Long dry finish. Tasty brew.

Supposedly its own style of beer (nearly extinct per Phantom Canyon's web site -- http://www.phantomcanyon.com/brewery/1942-burton-ale/). Originally brewed at Anchor Brewing, Southwark, London UK. This is is part of Phantom Canyon's Revival Series (#16).

The body appears a murky orange with a quickly dissipating white head. It emits a slightly sweet, fruity smell. Taste is much like the smell with some nice bitterness at the finish. The body comes across light, clean, and dry.

A fair stab at an ale style, I suppose. Its crisp, sharp bitterness is its strong point, otherwise unassuming and uninspiring.
