If I were the type of person to buy beer 12 or 24 at a time instead of one by one, this would be one of those fridge standards I'd likely keep around. Middle Ages makes some of the best niche UK style brewed in the USA beers I have had but this is their ale for the guy who just wants an ale. It pours light amber with a white skim of a head, it has a great soft mouthfeel that matches the rich fruity premium pale malt and it framed by the husky graininess and edgy hops. The yeast is creamy but the overall effect is incredibly refreshing. Some advocatonians find it too buttery but that is a matter of taste.
Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.
Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."
Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."
