Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a classic English beer style is copper-colored, medium-bodied and pleasantly hopped. Its flavor is delightfully complex: tangy fruit at the start, with an assertive hop crispness and a long malty palate that one well-known beer writer has compared to the flavor of freshly-baked bread.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.
Pours a deep amber color with light head.
Smells very malty but the aromas are muted.
Tastes very malty, touch a hop bitterness on the back end.
Mouthfeel was a touch sticky.
Overall, a good beer, not something that wowed me.
