Tastes like Bass Ale only fresher and better than what you get from Bass in the U.S. Mild malt flavor backed with earthy woody tones of Fuggles. Easy drinkability for a session or goes great with food of various origins. Well crafted beer once again from Middle Ages.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus, honey and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character up front. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style even though it seems to lean more toward the English Pale Ale style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.

When in Syracuse, buy a like named beer!

Pours clear gold with a one finger white head that dropped to a cover but left some lace.

Floral hop nose with a slight soapy presence...no it wasn't the glassware.

Taste was similar with some floral hops up front, slight bitterness through the middle and a clean, somewhat dry finish.

Mouthfeel was on the thin side with a buttery presence. Mellow carbonation was a bit prickly on the tongue.

Nice session brew at 5%

A - Pale straw color, almost transparent, but still slightly cloudy. One finger of white head which quickly dissipated to a thin layer. Very little lacing.

S - Pine hops and wheat malts; some spice as well. Slightly sweet smelling, focusing on a dominant malt profile: wheat grain, butter, and sugar.

T - Light and bright initially, followed by a strong wave of back-of-the-throat malts, including caramel, butter, and a bit of a liquorice flavor. Hops are fairly mild, showing pine. Some earthy woodiness. Interesting flavor profile, but not my cup of tea (beer). Taste follows aroma pretty closely.

M - Extremely light and lager-ish. Makes for a quick drink, which is good for this style. Very little oily hop residue, little carbonation sting, no sense of alcohol (of which there shouldn't be, at 5.0%).

O - This seems like an experimental flavor, with some pine hops and a huge malt character, all in a light-bodied ale. It's not a bad beer, but I wouldn't dream of making it my everyday ale.
