A traditional English style which is light brown to amber. This beer has a malt presence with mild hop bitterness. Malt flavors tend to predominate along with a light crisp aroma. We added a bit of Cascade to this one because we like the aroma better than the traditional Fuggles or Golding. Evidently others agree its a three time Best of Show Winner.
