Poured from an undated 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

This beer pours out a hazy orange color with two fingers of head. The aroma is sweet and bready, with some fruity and herbal hops. The taste is smooth and bready, with a bit of prickliness and fruitiness from the hops. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and easy-drinking, and the drinkability is good. It's a solid English style pale ale. Won't blow your mind, but it's a good drink.

A: Pours a crystal clear copper in color. The beer has a three finger tall creamy light beige head that reduces into a very dense finger tall head that is slightly thicker at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Light aromas of pale malts with moderate aromas of earthy and floral hops.

T: The taste of this beer follows the smell... The beer starts out with some pale and caramel malt flavors and then the hop flavors come in. The hop flavors contribute some earthiness and just a hint of floral notes. The beer is very well balanced.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Very smooth.

O: This beer is very enjoyable and very easy to drink, I find it to be extremely well balanced. This would be a great summer beer for drinking at cookouts. I could easily pair this beer with lots of different foods. Definitely sessionable.
