I like Fuller's 1845 which is bottle-conditioned and represents one type of fruity rich fresh-character English ale. Also, Fiddler's Elbow has a good English hop character. Black Sheep's beers (Yorkshire) are very good, too.
Of the many fine American microbrews, I tend to prefer those in an English style. Old Yard Ale and others by Yard in Philadelphia are examples; also, the ales from Geary in Maine, but there are many others including on the West Coast (e.g. Double Barrel Ale).
I like the American Pale Ale style too, but at its best the British-accented beers are hard to beat. I am sure some of the breweries on L.I. showcase some good examples.Gary
