look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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 and a little lemon-lime. 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 black tea-like finish. A touch of spice and evokes gummy candy with the alcohol 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 a more assertive American hop regime.
