look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very clear golden amber color with a thick, pillowy head that reduced into a half inch white cap with little lacing. Smells faintly fruity. The taste is full of bready malt flavor; buttery in the finish. Subtle hop presence. Despite the difference in styles, I thought this beer had a distinctly Heineken-like flavor. Medium bodied and viscous, it stays on the tongue. Overall, a fine session beer. I'd have it again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Good start to the head but it dies out relatively quickly. Spots for lace. Dark gold color. Clear.

Leans to the crystal malt aromas. There's enough hop to provide some balance.

The flavor is similar to the smell--quite British (earthy with dry caramel) with a good dollop of hop bitterness in the swallow. Relatively short aftertaste. Spritzy body. Round body.

3.44/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Clear transparent copper with a solid finger of white foam; short retention, mild lacing.

Caramel malt aroma, biscuit and bread forward. Slight sweetness to the scent.

Definite caramel malts, slightly dry hops. Sweetness about balanced with the nose - neither much more nor less.

Light feel, although there is a slight hop oiliness. Very balanced.

English pales aren't my favorite, but this is a balanced, easy-going beer. It actually reminds me of a slightly drier, slightly less sweet Boston Lager. Not a bad beer, and I wouldn't mind grabbing it again, but I'm not going to seek it out, either.
