First had: on tap at Teresa's, Wayne, PA

"Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence."

Served in a shaker pint, a hazy darker amber color with a firm half inch of ivory head that retained and laced well. Aroma of toasted grains, bready malts, light hops. Taste reflected the nose well, toasted grains, caramel, hints of citrus zest and orange blossom, slightly piney, mildly hopped. Smooth, light-medium body, and went down delightfully easily. Very nice overall. Extra points for naming an English bitter after one of my favorite bitter Englishmen! Cheers!

On cask at Station Taproom 2nd Anniv. party. Cask of their Special bitter dry hopped with Cascade.

Pours a cloudy golden amber with a fluffy khaki head that fades to a thin collar and a few thick rings of lace. Nutty and pine nose, biscuit malt and mild sweetness. Medium flavor, nutty malt, dry and resin body and a strong hoppy pine finish. Medium thick body, creamy and smooth with light carbonation. A refreshing, hoppy bitter, infinitely drinkable. Boom.

Had this on 2012-04-21 in Downingtown, PA at the Station Taproom 2nd Anniversary. Had this again on 2015-07-03 in Lancaster, PA at The Fridge on tap.

A - Cloudy orange with a 1-finger white head with good lacing.

S - Orange marmelade, spice, grain, very pleasant. There were a lot of food smells in the bar, which impacted my ability to distinguish more aromas if they were present in the beer.

T - Light-medium roasted grain, orange citrus, nice amount of hop bitterness. Very fresh and flavorful.

M - Medium body and light carbonation. Refreshing.

O - A delicious session brew with tons of flavor. I would look for it again.
