Poured on tap into a snifter glass at Churchkey. Boyl'Rmayk'R ?

Bright bone white head presented on the pour, with about a finger, and some nice lacing. A little creamy retention that sits on a deep brass and lemon yellow body. Head falls normally to a small puck, with a good coating.

Very closed nose on this. Sense of wetness and clean character, some faint grainy toast. Hard to get a sense that this is wood aged at all. Nothing offensive or off putting, and in that category it gets scored down the middle.

Well and extremely crisp and light bodied palate, and very watery. This feels more like an English mild. Faint toasty grains of brown bread, and some faint balsam wood. Watery consistency doesn't really hold the flavors here and it's tricky to search around for something to mention. Some warmth though does bring out more of the mild caramel sensing sweetness but it washes away so quickly.

The beer gets a little better with time as it warms and you have more of it, but the appeal on this for an English Pale Ale (at 7 %?) with a mild character it just does not appeal to me. I don't get this beers angle and what's the point of making a sessionable tasting high abv beer that is mild in flavor? This comes off as more of a we did this cause we could, and it sort of has impressive elements, but why make a beer this big this mild? Anywho there you have it.

Serving type: on-tap
