look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: This beer pours a beautiful, slightly cloudy, deep amber orange with a one finger thick pure white head.

Smell: This beer has aromas of toasted caramel and grainy malt. There is a pleasant fruity ester of pears or honeydew. The sweet malt aromas come across obviously, but do not overpower the more subtle elements in the nose.

Taste: This beer has a definite light fruit character meshed with a bready, malty, goodness. There is a sweet honeysuckle nectar character along with the flavors of fresh warm baked bread and subtle bitter cherry aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a light and pleasant mouthfeel with a low to medium low carbonation. It is amazingly easy on your palette and extremely refreshing.

Drinkability: I could kick back quite a few of these over the evening at a pub or while sitting on my porch during the summer. It has nice flavors, without being overpowering, and a light body that makes extremely easy to drink.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: I think this is a fantastic beer. It has a nice flavor and aroma profile that is complex enough yet not too over the top given the light, playful nature of the body. It definitely has more character than your traditional English styles, but is reminiscent of that same vain of easy drinking subtlety flavored beers. I think it would pair fantastically with typical pub grub like fish and chips or mutton stew. Or, it would pair fantastically with a six pack of it's buddies on a hot summer dark or while raking leaves in the fall.
