A well executed, authentic pale ale. Sweet, malty aroma with notes of burnt sugar or molasses. Appearance is bright, clear copper, with a light, relatively fast-dissipating head. Flavour is quite sweet with a strong hop-layered finish, that lingers and hints at toffee. The balance is slightly toward bitter, but a well-balanced beer overall. The mouthfeel is generally light and effervescent, and contrasts sharply with the complexities within the malt and hop flavours.
