On tap at Brit's Pub in Minneapolis

A: Copper color Nice head that fell into a thin collar.

S: Slight apple scent and a little bit of some tropical fruits, smells a little sweet.

T: Nice balance of malts with a tiny hint of hops on the backend. Has a nice sweetness and tartness come through from green apples. Nothing overpowers, all blends well.

M: Medium bodied beer with minimal carbonation.

Nothing overpowering or unique here. Good beer to have at the pub, would have again but nothing too special.

A: Nice bright amber color, with a foamy head.

S: Malty and nutty, slightly sweet

T: Tangy, very slightly bitter with a hint of caramel.

M: Not overly carbonated, a little tingle. Pretty much just wet.

O: A very nice pale ale that seems a lot more like an amber. Very drinkable and delicious.

Tried this the other day at St. Georges Tavern in London. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful thin head and the semi-cloudy body. What a site! The first few sips tasted like a typical english bitter, but after that you start to taste cream. Lot's of cream.

I did a short beer run over in London and this is by far my favorite beer I tried. If you can get it on tap then please do it.

Also, it went great with my lamb shank pie.

That is all.

A - Clear copper brew. A small head, scattering dots of lacing.

S - Malt and an earthy hop. Simple, but pleasant.

T - Slightly sweet, with a slight wooded taste with a minuscule sour bite. Aftertaste is a little odd with some weird earthen flavor and a bit of a bland wood.

M - Watery, a little harsh and a little drying.

D - Not awful, but not great either. I could see why it would be easy to drink a half dozen of these with some british pub food, but I'd rather drink something else.

Poured from a 330 ml bottle into a pint glass, best by 11 Jan 2012. This pours a nice amber color with a big bubbled very short lived head. The smells are of bready malts, a little caramel and maybe a hint of hops. The feel is medium to light. The taste is like it smells some nice bready malts, a little caramel / toffee and a little hop bite, far fewer hips than the American version.
