4.15/5  rDev +12.5%

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a clear orange color with off-white soapy head that left minimal lacing.

S- Pretty rich malty aroma full of bready notes, caramel, toffee, and white grape..

T- Rich bready notes, lots of white grape and bright citrusy notes, caramel, cream soda, and toffee.

M- Very smooth, prickly carbonation, dry, and medium body.

O- This is such a well-balanced, flavorful, and smooth English Ale. This one caught me by surprise, quite a treat.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an orange-amber color with a thick one finger white head that has fantastic retention. The head slowly fades over a long time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The nose of the beer is sweet and malty with tons of caramel and toffee sweetness as well as a good deal of a grainy and toasted bready malt smell. Along with these aromas comes some smells of a sweeter fruitiness as well as a bit of an earthy and piney hop smell.

Taste – The taste begins much drier then I would have anticipated from the smell with a toasted malt flavor along with just a bit of a more caramel sweet taste. The bit of sweetness that is present upfront fades as the taste advances with just a hint of a lighter butterscotch flavor taking its place. Joining the toasted malt flavor are some flavors of grain and a bit of a hay-like malty taste. Hop flavors are largely absent upfront, but as the taste advances some flavors of an earthy and herbal hop flavor come to the tongue. Along with a little bit of nut and a very light happening of some toffee, one is left with a malty and slightly dank hopped and sweetened flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side for a brew of only 5.6 % abv. For the style and tastes of the brew, which consist of malty and dank hops, the thicker body and lower carbonation level are rather well fitting and make for a nice mouth coating feel.

Overall – A decent bitter overall, but really nothing all that fantastic.

Had this on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Louisville, my ninth review of a Sierra Nevada offering. Call me old fashioned but I think I prefer my bitters to be...you know, bitter. This one is very mild, and the fruitiness wasn't really welcome either. The color is an orangish-amber, not a bad look. It's all right, just not my favorite.

Bottle from the mix pack. Pours deep hazy copper colored with a one finger white to off white head. Aroma of characteristic SN yeast, some light bitterness, bready malt, straw. Flavor is malty to the core, bready with some fruits in there like figs and apples, clean crisp finish of straw and sugars. Light bodied, crisp, medium plus carbonation. Not bad, easy drinking, seems on style, but a style that doesn't excite me that much. One of the better in the style for me though.
