Didn't get the appearance since I drank for the bottle but carbonation was decent. Smells of mild if any English malts and hops not bad it doesn't seem to have hard water or skunk smell. Taste was pretty easy going to me it didn't have too much of a English malt profile with any tea taste or anything mostly biscuit and some earthy hops. Body was light I could drink it easy.

Overall it was a good pale ale worth picking up but not sure I would pay 2.50 for the single again.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Bought a bottle to try on my regular drinking day. Here goes:

A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours a clear brown with almost no head or retention time. Very little lacing, indicating a poor protein content.

S: Just average for a pale ale. Lots of amber and slightly-roasted malts producing a mediocre caramel background. Interestingly, the beer has a rather bready smell reminiscent of baker's yeast. No hops apparent.

T: OK, rather follows the nose. A very bready taste complimented by an average caramel malt backbone. The presence of English hops is apparent in the aftertaste, but these are mostly masked by the bready yeast and caramel malt.

M: Good, like a regular English pale ale. Very light.

O: Not a bad pale ale, but I probably won't be acquiring it again. Caramel and amber malt complimented by English baker's yeast. Some hope presence, but not much.
