Good bar poured head. Leaves rings after every sip. Dark gold and quite clear.

The smell is a combination berry-like sweetness and floral hop. A bit of muted pepper in the background.

This beer has caramelized malt of an English Bitter with the hop bite of an American pale ale. Very easy to drink. Full bodied with a decent carbonation. Not complicated. Bitter swallow with a lengthy aftertaste.

Had this on tap at a Thai restaurant in San Diego. Pours a deep amber color with a small creamy white head. Aroma is light wet dog and some caramel malts. Not a whole lot going on there. Flavor follows with big time malt kicks, caramel, biscuits, with some definite pine bitter to balance alongside. Mostly highlighting the malts but definitely not a super sweet beer. Slick mouthfeel with medium-to-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent beer, and pretty bold for the style.
