On tap, in a pint glass at the brewery, on a warm summer evening. Classic and well-done version of the English Pale Ale. Amber color with no cloudiness. Aroma of light caramel with slight citrus. Mouth-feel appropriate to style. Decent head retention and lacing. Dry biscuit malt finish with balanced bitterness. A very nice beer overall.

EDIT - This review is for a dry-hopped version of the beer. This was noted in the beer name that I added but someone felt the need to change it.
This was the fourth or so installment of cask Wednesday at Draught Works.
This draws a pale, clear gold with a tightly-packed two finger head that sticks around forever and leaves really nice lace on the way down. On the nose there is a nice and subdued aroma of fresh hops, which the bartender informs me is either East Kent Goldings or Fuggles, with a malt backbone evident because the hops don't completely overpower the beer. In the mouth there is a low level of carbonation that makes it go down very easily. The floral and maybe slightly tangerineish hops highlight a doughy backbone with hints of caramel. The body is medium light, very easy to drink.
Overall, this is a fine, easily quaffable, very well-balanced pale ale. Jeff, the brewer, has described the base beer as a very traditional pale ale, and the serving style is obviously very traditional, but the dry-hopping adds just a bit extra that make this beer special. Keep an eye out for this on cask Wednesdays.

ABV 5.2% At the brewery
Pours golden with light cream foam. Nose has floral notes and faint malts, with subtle accents of grain and honey. Flavor is primarily grass and soil - very english to me. Medium body with moderate carb and semi dry finish. Meh.
