Pours pale rusty orange with a cratered off white head that fades to patches quickly with some trailers. Nose is an English malt sweetness, apple and grain and some hops spice. Pear tart malts with tobacco and cinnamon hops. Dry finish, lager-like crispness. Tighter and fuller than expected. Gets less English as it warms(?)
More english bitter than lager. I can see where Sam Adams was modeled on this. Pretty MOR now, but must have been a lighting bolt back in the 70s.
