12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: A very semi-dark peachy hazy color that looks pretty radiant in the glass. Retention doesn't linger as long as I'd hoped. Bubbles are thick and off-white, a nice ring remaining around the body of the brew.
Smell: Lingering candied fruits, sweetness, and a bit of chocolate or toffee, though the latter remains fairly mild. Definitely an English version, that's for sure.
Taste: The hops are here throughout, unlike what you can gather from the aroma. But this remains fairly mild, with a nice amount of fruit and candy flavors lingering with some mildly bitter hops on the side of lemongrass and orange.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a fairly silky carbonation overall.
Drinkability: Picked this up for $9 for the six-pack in Portland, and it was definitely a good purchase. A highly sessionable and tasty brew, and pretty perfect for this point in the summer.

Poured a light copper, almost Amber with a thin head of light foam. Aroma was spicy with a sweet fruit note. Great carbonation helped bring out the bitterness of the hops very well and finished with a sweet caramel flavor. Very nice and refreshing.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A minimal head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with slow moving bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted and slight sweet Maris Otter malt follow by herbal and slight orange citrus hops.
Taste: Chewy and crunchy bread, pale malts, herbal, and slight hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing, a little chewy, and medium carbonation.
Overall: As for an EPA, more earthy and fruity notes would be good.
Serving type: can
