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.

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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: Deep amber, inch plus white head receded to a thick surface foam and significant lacing.

s: Mild malt.

t: Excellent maltiness without much hop bite. This is my second one, for some reason the first was not nearly as memorable.

m: Medium, very smooth.

o: A fine English style ale. Which is to say for me, a very fine brew indeed. It's clear many if not most of us Americans tend not to favor this style. When it's good, I love it, although admittedly it is not necessarily the most refreshing summer brew.
