It pours a hazy orange/brown with a white frothy head and had hints of bread malts, herbal hops and a big note of caramel. This is a bold malty brew with a pronounced caramel sweetness and a mild hop backbone. A tasty easy to drink brew with a low ABV, which allows for the consumption of multiple beers...

Nose butterscotch, malt, faint hay & biscuit. Taste sweet bready malt, caramel, toffee, light herbal hops with a slight bitter finish.

A: Reddish amber in color, nice tall off white head on top.

S: Caramel and bread aromas, with a nice flower and herb hop smell.

T: Good caramel flavor, with bread notes. Some light toffee, and a touch of erbal hops in the finish.. there is a touch of a tannic finish.

M: Medium in body, with a fairly creamy feel. Carbonation is fairly high.

O: Overall pretty tasty. Although I wish there was a little more character from the English Hops. Although perhaps that's just because I was really craving a Fullers ESB, and settled on this. Still a fine beer.

Pale copper-amber colour, just over one finger of white head, little lace. Smell is malty with a bit of a toffee and caramel, fruity as well, earthy and lightly metallic hops. Taste is fruity with a light bitterness up front, malty-toffee like sweetness, light fruity earthy points as well, overall flavours were fairly muted but well balanced. Lightly carbonated, medium-full body. Solid stuff and very easily drinkable, would have liked more pronounced flavours though.
