On the label it says "they call it a bitter, we call it a pale." I call it neither.

Smells just lovely, like a Belgian dubbel...raisins, bread, yeast...nice. pours a cloudy copper with...omg...the most head ever. This has to be the most carbonated beer I've ever had, right?..foams up like a misused dish washer on a sitcom...but then, the suds subside, and the beer itself is mildly carbonated...weird.

Taste...well, again, I'm tasting a somewhat watery Belgian style...tastes like someone poured some tonic water into a Chimay red. It's not unpleasant, though, and it's much more interesting as it warms up a bit...cold, it doesn't have much character.

This is an odd beer. I kinda like's just labelled completely wrong. I'll try it again.

Bottle into shaker.

Pours a light amber with fluffy, eggshell white head that settles to soapy froth.

Aroma is caramel, nutty English malts, faint clove, sweet bread, and ever so light floral and citrus notes.

Taste is an almost exact interpretation of the nose. Very English bitter like, with some earthy and spruce like hop bitterness. Easy drinking, smooth.

Body is light with a nice English pale light carbonation detail and creamy finish.

Overall a tasty American interpretation of an English pale/bitter. Expected more American influence bur this shows little Yankee character.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin white head that dissipates to patches and a thin ring around the glass; light slippery lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt, tea and mild citrus and floral hops. Flavor follows aroma; biscuit, mildly toasty malt forward with grassy, mildly citrus hops. Light to medium bodied with peppery carbonation. An interesting and quite drinkable mash-up of ESB style malts and more American oriented hops, although the hop bitterness level is similar to a bitter. Fairly faithful, but nicely balanced in its own way. A nice sessionable English style ale.
