Pours translucent light amber with an off white head with beautiful lacing down the glass.
An aroma of English malt base with some hops with subtle hints of peach and tangerine. Taste is very clean and dry, slightly bitter with medium carbonation. Overall an excellent example of an English Pale Ale.

Had on the handpump at the Bulls Head on Sep 24. While it looked fine in the pint taper glass -nice and gold with a generous head; the aroma was somewhat musty and I couldn't pick much else up. The taste was also musty like some other types of fermentables were used and I couldn't identify the hops which were somewhat muted. Mouthfeel was OK but not a very satisfying beer and unusual for this maker.

growler fill, poured into my curved pint glass.
A- a perfectly translucent light amber/orange, with a very fluffy off-white head. Great lacing down the glass.
S- a biscuity/english malt base, with some hops that are really quite nice. Notes of hemp, peach, and a restrained tangerine note.
T- Taste is pretty good. Certainly an English Pale as the malts are a little drier and the hops a little more restrained than the American interpretations. A nice Biscuity malt base, not too sweet, leads into a hop bitterness, but the notes of peach, hemp and tangerine I get a bit of on the nose, are really harder to pickup on. (but they are there)
M- light to medium at best, and very drinkable. A nice medium carbonation as well.
O- A well done pale. If they could get the hops to transition a bit more flavor, it would be epic. As it is, it's still pretty darn good.
