A: Clear reddish orange with a fantastic head. Big bubbles mostly - dissipates in a marbled fashion. Good retention and lacing.
S: Smells really good for a pale ale - caramel and maybe some toffee malts, with nice-smelling English hops in the background.
T: I didn't get it from the smell, but caramel and a slight amount of coffee dominate the taste! Flowering hops and sweet caramel malt come in second. Finishes with a sweet and slightly smoky bread flavor. Slight alkaline taste that is evident in the first to drinks. A fine pale ale - my favorite so far.
M: Medium-light and perfectly carbonated. No way to improve this area.
D: Goes down smoother than other pale ale's I've tried. No problem finishing this one. My girlfriend even stole some from me - and she doesn't usually like beer!
Serving type: bottle
