3.33/5  rDev -14.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

This bitter pours a some what hazy pale or dull orange, little or no head to speak of. Scent is yeasty and musty, a bit floral, lemony. Taste is more malty than yeasty but with same mustiness, and thats not a bad thing. Taste has some caramel notes in there as well. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. Overall, a decent bitter. This beer needs to warm a bit.

Into a pint glass.

A: hazy golden/blonde colored body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that dies within about a minute leaving some nice clingy creamy looking lacing, light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace

S: mainly sweet through the malt and the grain coming through in a clean yet somewhat soapy way like most English Bitters do, also I got some light corn as well

T: sweet through the English malts and gives off a creamy English malty aftertaste that just clings around the mouth, dry bitter (but in that English sort of way) finish

M: light to medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation is actually somewhat smooth and ends up showing a nice creamy sort of aspect that I usually get when I have an English bitter

O: ABV- what ABV? There's alcohol in this? Haha, it doesn't seem like it to me. The low ABV helps a ton to try to make it sessionable, but the creamier body gives it a nice English aspect to make it feel like beer. I'd probably have again perhaps with some fish and chips.
