3.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Undated bottle at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head small (2 cm), fizzy, off white, quickly diminishing to 2 mm ring and scattered bubbles
Lacing none
Body light amber, clear
Flavor of light malt, slight hoppiness, and just a hint of diacetyl. No alcohol taste. Flavor very short-lived.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Very nice ale, have consumed many and would recommend it. The fizzy head and lack of lacing detract from the appearance. Still not a tasty as a Yorkshire dark ale.
