No head. Nice color. Good taste but does not blow me away.

3.73/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving: On draft into an imperial pint
Served: 25 October 2014

Appearance: A somewhat hazy, soft yellow color with a soapy, bright white head. The head does collapse relatively fast, but leaves some light lacing.

Smell: Doesn't smell like much, but there is a soft hoppiness in the nose along with some sweet malts.

Taste: A nice well-balanced beer between malts and hops. The hops are soft and not very assertive, while the malts provide some decent white-bread sweetness almost. Significantly less hoppy than most pale ales, though I attribute this to the style (English vs. American). Malts do provide a hint of strange astringency.

Feel: Great carbonation and medium body.

Overall: A good beer and one I could drink in quantity here. It's nothing that'll blow your world, but is a serviceable beer.
