I know it's described as "English-style" on the label, but it's still surprisingly malt forward for a pale ale. Not as balanced (or to my taste) as more hop-forward pale ales.

Pours a copper color, with moderate lacing.

Smells of toasted, bready malts with a hint of grassy hops.

Tastes much like it smells but with a stronger hop presence. There is also some caramel malts in the flavor. Overall, very well balanced with nothing being too extreme, but the malts are stronger than many Pales, as the English style in the title suggests.

It's on the heavier side of medium in body, and carbonation is fairly heavy for a Pale Ale, but it still manages to go down fairly smoothly.

Overall, this is a fairly solid offering. While certainly not the best Pale I've ever had, it's certainly makes a great session beer and provides a nice alternative to most other Pales. I should add that it also goes well with most food.
