Poured into a stemmed tulip glass from the 12 oz. bottle.

a: Appealing amber topped by an inch plus white head which faded slowly.

s: Lightly malty, reminiscent of British beers at English pubs.

t: Mild maltiness balanced by a light hop element.

m: Light to moderate, quite smooth.

o: A good solid English style pale ale. Nicely complemented the Montesino Napoleon Grande cigar in the gazebo on a mid-70s breezeless evening watching fireworks on the telly. Glad I chose this ale to go with that top ten time of the year.

Looking forward to drinking the other three from the variety twelvepack. A great value, by the way, since I paid only $11 for the twelver when it was on sale. A helluva buy for 92 cents a bottle.
