Pours a coppery amber, almost no head, and no lacing. Decent clarity, with mild carbonation visible. Moderate citrus hop presence in the nose, giving way to light honey and biscuit. Okay, but was hoping for more.
Buttered toast and light biscuit up front, but citrus and hop resins dominate the taste. Moderate carbonation goes well with a decent hop presence. Interesting enough to be pretty sessionable, but in this category, I'd prefer, say, Fuller's ESB because it's better balanced between malt and hops.
This is a damn good approximation of a British bitter. It's quaffable and makes me interested in their brown ale.
