look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: standard 500mL brown bottle. I'm sure there is a lot of history behind the label, but I can't help but think it looks like a tacky, home drawn 'old boys' label that makes the beer look a bit cheap.

Appearance: pours a mid golden-amber colour with minimal carbonation. A small head pops up and settles to a flimsy cap. Great lacing - all together, it looks pretty decent but not mind-blowing.

Aroma: really not much here - a touch of English hops and some sweet malts. A bit surprised, considering the high priase from the Brits - perhaps it has suffered some on the trip over?

Taste: again comes through with a nice sweet malt and a touch of earthen and forest characteristics. Not as complex as I had expected, but certainly a very quaffable beer.

Aftertaste: the malt and earthen flavours linger for a short time, with a hint of hops bitterness.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with a low to medium carbonation.

Overall: after seeing the massive amount of love for this beer, I have to admit I was a bit let down. It isn't a bad English Pale, but I certainly wouldn't say it was full in flavour and not all that complex. Worth one every now and then, but at a cost of $90 a case ain't worth it.

Served from a 16.9oz bottle into a Woodcock Brothers Imperial Pint glass. Served around mid 50 degrees.

Appearance- Amber with 2 finger fluffy off-white that lasted long and left nice lacing.

Smell- Fruity/biscuity malts. A lot of light stone fruits present. Very mild earthy hops. Malt forward as expected.

Taste- Starts out malty, but the fruit presence comes in and finishes lightly bitter. Mild hop flavor and plums and pear present themselves nicely. Well balanced for a Bittish pale.

Mouthfeel- Pretty well carbonated with extremely light body, but it still has a nice viscosity to it.

Overall- I'm not a huge fan of traditional style brittish beers, but this easily takes the cake. Truly a great Brittish beer that I would drink regularly.

Poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin, slightly off-white head that dissipates into a thick ring around the glass. Nice aroma of sweet caramel and biscuit malt, light fruit. Flavor is mild, but complex, with light citrus and light pear and apple juice, biscuit and caramel malt, finishing with hints of tobacco, molasses and light tea inflected, grassy hops. Sharp, peppery carbonation. Amazing variety of flavors in this low ABV pale ale. Nicely done.

500ml bottle, with one ruddy looking fellow on the label. Everything about this just screams out 'English', and 'public house'. That, and calling a 4.1% ABV offering, um, 'strong'.

This beer pours a crystal clear, medium bronzed amber colour, with two fingers of puffy, cushiony, and mildly bubbly off-white head, which leaves some decent dripping paint splatter lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of punchy grainy, biscuity pale malt, a touch of bready caramel, a subtle drupe fruitiness, and crackling herbal, leafy hops. Very ESB-like, thus far. The taste is more biscuity, grainy pale malt, with a certain warming spiciness, almost rye-like in character, a hint of fresh tobacco, warm lemon juice, and earthy, floral, and herbal hops.

The bubbles are a tad frisky, but generally easy enough to get along with, the body on the good side of medium-light weight, and smooth amongst a low-key tackiness. It finishes off-dry, barely as that spicy, biscuity character just seems to carry on and on, to the overall delight of this crowd.

A heck of an enjoyable version of the style, the peppiness of the decidedly un-American hops taking this thing all the way through, complex flavours abounding. And with the rather low ABV, this is obviously the definition of a session-worthy brew, the kind you hope to keep seeing reappear on the well-kept bar in front of you. Sigh.
