I wanted to order their apparent current seasonal, the English Mild, but was informed that they have a new seasonal, a celebration of Brewsters 20th anniversary. All right, then, party on...

This beer arrives at the table in an American pint glass, and appears a clear, dark golden brown, with a single finger of slightly beige head, that leaves no lacing. It smells of caramel malt, yeast, and earthy, fragrant hops. The taste is more caramel malt, old-world hops, a bit more BOY (Brewsters Own Yeast), and some sourdough breadiness. There's above average carbonation, lending a kind of prickly feel to an otherwise decently solid body, and it finishes with a tad more caramel sweetness. A respectable effort, but it would have been more interesting for Brewsters to push a few more style limits for the big 2-0, rather than stick so close to their standard ale offerings.
