bottled: 1SW; 3rd week of September, 2011

A: Copper with a transient finger of white foam which falls quickly to a broken sheet of the same. spotty lace. excellent clarity.
S: Smells like english malts. Sweet with hints of toffee.
T: Tea flavors with strong malts and subtle, earthy hops. Pretty simple and easy to drink.
M: medium bodied with moderate over low carb and a semi dry finish.
O: I can see why this beer made it big. I can appreciate the approach-ability of the beer. It's just mediocre to me.
