Looks slightly hazy and has an off white head with solid lacing. Overall color I would call a dark gold.

Smells like fermented sweet corn and your classic pale malt. I cant add too much to this due to my terrible sense of smell.

Starts off kinda sweet then starts to reveal very mild earthy notes. I really did not pick up hardly any after flavors...Very mild finish that tapers off into basically neutral.

On a carbonation scale from 1-5 I would give it a 2. Very smooth beer that I must say could be guzzled if so desired, but at 4 dollars U.S. here in the states I do not think I will give in to that temptation.

Overall this is pretty tasty and pretty drinkable but I couldn't pick up anything else special.

Pours a hazy mahogany color, opaque, with a thin bright white head. The head has little retention and eventually leaves an attractive creamy white circle around the perimeter...nice lacing.

Has a flowery, citric smell. Malty.

Nothing jumps out at me. Malted barley, only the slightest touch of citrus. Flowery finish.

It's mostly bitter from beginning to end. It's never overpowering, but there's just not much else there. Initial pop of Earthiness from the barley quickly turns bitter and continues with the hops til the wet finish.

Overall, it's only slightly better than average and that's because the hoppiness never overpowers anything else. Pretty typical of an English pale ale.

500ml bottle –nice flying witch engravings on the collar. ½ Pint glass. Enjoyed on jun´12. Golden amber color headed by white, medium bubbled, slowly dissipated froth. Some spotty lacing on sides. Herbal aromas with hints of honey & ripe persimmon to the nose. Mildy malts too. Crispy upfront, spicy bitter touch with subtle strawberry notes. Maltiness is carried on by a satiating mineralized underlying river followed by clean bitterness in the middle. Ripe apple texture. Medium to high body, medium to high carbonation. It was a hazy & lazy sunny day afternoon & I´d really enjoyed it very much.

500mL bottle poured into Fuller's half pint glass
Best before: 28 Feb 13

A: Light apple juice. Barely 0.25 (soft white) fingernail head on vigorous pour.

S: Blah - just loads of bitterness here with a touch of white bread. Sad.

T: Follows smell, but a bit worse. Dry cracker with a touch of butter. Not much else. Bummer!

M: Light body with soft carbonation.

O: Not enjoyable and unimpressed. Such goes life...time to move on. It happens!
