for the style, well above average appearance, with a sturdy white head, some good lacing that dissipates after a few minutes...dark blonde beauty. nose has a wonderful freshness of light malts and hops...very balanced. nothing complex, but that's not part of the style. so far, so good. refreshing. bold. this is where the taste ups the ante. again, complexity not at play, but there's a perfect balance of malt graininess and hop presence. if anything, if i was doing a blind taste test, i would think this was an ESB. full bodied, plenty to taste. an all-around anytime brew that i could easily session alone or with good pub fare. i can't help but laugh at how folks rate some beers so severely. remember the style. the pale ale isn't an ipa

Pours slightly cloudy, caramel color. Small head dissipates quickly. Flavors of lemon give way to cloves. Heavily carbonated. Bitter aftertaste. A very good, balanced and full-flavored beer.

Dundee English-Style Ale | Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is three fingers thick and off-white, with lateral lacing, and a clear medium amber body.


Smells like biscuit malts and lively, grassy grains.

I taste much of the elements of the scent along with a "nutty" flavor profile that so many UK beers are known and loved for. Very delicious, indeed, with an easy-going drinkability.

The mouthfeel here is crisp and clean.

Overall, I'll rate Dundee English-Style Ale | Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. with a 4.5. This came part of the Dundee variety pack, so pick that up if you're interested in giving this a whirl.

Pours an orangish-gold color into a typical pint glass with a 2 finger head. Plenty of carbonation. Smells citrusy. Initial taste also has notes of citrus, hops, yeast. Lacing is very good as well. Finish is slightly dry, but crisp. Overall a very enjoyable brew.

Pours a shade lighter than caramel, with a 2 finger head that rapidly diminishes to a ring of stable fluff. Opacity is 10%.

Aroma is of baked malts, apple cores, toffee, and barley wort. Very little detectable hop in the aroma.

Taste is actually quite delicious and crisp. It's extremely malty, especially for any type of pale ale, but I enjoy it. After a few sips the shine wears off though, and I grow tired of it. Off flavors would include soy sauce, touches of vinegar, and old discarded pine air fresheners.

Feel is super crisp, tight, and refreshing. I really enjoy the feel on this one.

Overall this English Style Ale isn't half bad for beer in general. If you're expecting a pale ale with outstanding bitterness or dashes of onion or pine, forget it. This one drinks more like a malty pilsner and actually comes together quite nicely for the first quarter of the beer. After that, it grows dull and boring and the mouthfeel is the only thing saving it.

The beer pours a beautiful dark golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light and fruity pale malt scent along with a bit of yeast esters and a bit of English hops. It's pretty tame while showcasing the malts. The taste is good. It has a very quaffable pale and Munich malt flavor. It's a tad sweet with a touch of English hops in the finish. It goes down easy with minimal yeast fruitiness that only enhances the taste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It's light and flavorful while being well balanced and quite quaffable.

This was a surprise I found in a sampler pack, pour showed a dark golden color with a small white head...head faded but some nice lace hung around. Smell was rich and full of malty hints, taste followed and some Carmel notes came out as it warmed. A nice medium mouthfeel shows a solid English-Style Ale for the brand...I'd pick up a 6 of this for sure.

Pours a very clear light mahogany color with a big fat head that had average
retention but some pretty decent clinging lace.
SMELL: Very sweet malts, toffee and buttery caramel and a little herbal peppery spice.
TASTE: Malty, with some caramel, nutty. Still sweet, yet dry at the finish.
Clean, creamy with a moderate body.
Looking at other scores, surprised at how low they are. IMO this is a beer that easily is better than just OK. To each their own.
