4/5 rDev +9%
12oz brown bottle with pry-off cap bottled on 06/10/2014. Poured into Saint Arnold "Barrel" glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear, copper amber with 1 finger of head
Smell: A mix of floral hop and biscuity malt with a slight caramel
Taste: Hop bitterness up front with some pale, biscuit malt in the middle and the barrel character doesn't come into play until the finish giving a little complexity.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and finishes quite clean with a slight sweetness
Overall: The barrel characteristics make this interesting and deters it from being another run-of-the-mill English pale ale. There is a nice balance of flavors between the malt and bitterness. I'd really like to try this cask-conditioned.

a. Beautiful clear brownish red color with a 2 finger head on the pour. The head dissipates but remains in a thin layer across the top. The carbonation never stops.
s. Malt on malt. Some grape notes and alcohol.
t. Malt shines with a bit of fruit on the back end. Very good taste but a bit watery.
m. Goes down very easy.
o. Very very good beer. More body would have put it over the top for me, but this is a good beer for a summer day. Drinks very easy for an ale.
