Served on-tap in a Shaker pint glass at Blue Mountain Brewery (Afton, VA).
A: Clear honey-gold with 1/2-inch of off-white head with good retention and some scrappy blobs of lacing.
S: Malty aroma with bready and light caramel notes and a nice herbal hops note. There are some interesting fruity yeast and bread aromas, but they could be more plentiful.
T: A solid flavor profile, very easy drinking here, but I wish it has a little more distinct malt presence. The malt character is bready with a pleasant low-medium crystal malt note and some additional stone fruit components, somewhat more yeast based in character than from malt. The hopping and bitterness are on target with a nice floral and herbal note. No alcohol presence. This beer delivers what you expect, but it doesn't have a lot of distinctive qualities.
M: They nailed the proper feel for a British session ale with a mellow, low carbonation, fairly dry overall impression, with slightly less than medium body. There is no wateriness -- it is just an easy-drinking ale.
O: I liked this beer but didn't go for another. It seems like some more experimentation with additional malts would be a good idea to given this beer a little more lively flavor and aroma profile. That being, said, this a solid British-style pale session ale.
