Had this beer today for the first time in awhile, and I was not really very impressed. I personally always find myself being very sensitive to cooked vegetable, like corn which i found a bit of on this, both on the nose and palate.
Pours nice enough, a somewhat rich straw type colour, little to no head.
Get a lot of buttery cream corn type thing on the nose, with a little light nuttyness.
Tastes again like butter cream corn to me with a slight dry nuttyness, not bad but not great, and not much my style or preferred taste.
Mouth feel is good, medium weight and drinkable, definitely a good session beer for many (not me though).
Probably wouldn't seek this out or really get excited about trying it again, but for an inexpensive session beer it's alright, although I expected more.

Pours a burnished golden amber with ample off-white foam that breaks quite quickly. Looks and behaves like a pale ale. Aroma is very sweet, bready pale malt, yeasty esters that evoke peach and apricot. The flavor is subtle and understated but pleasant, apricot and grass. Hops are English (green, a bit earthy) but take a back seat to the fruit and malt. A little marmalade citrus in the uber-smooth mildly bitter finish. A touch of spice and evokes gummy candy with the alcohol there but well-concealed. Fairly thin body. A bit of an outlier pale ale in terms of flavor (especially in North America, this thing is sweet!) but I like it. Would appreciate an amped-up version with an American hop regime.
