Appearance is brownish copper with a finger of fizzy head that had some modest retention. There was an oddly sour note to the nose. The upfront flavor is malty with a healthy dose of dry bitterness on the finish. Not quite as hearty as a top tier ESB, but still very good, for sure.

This poured out as a nice looking reddish copper color with a thin white head on top. The head settles and leaves a light retention and scattered lacing. The smell of the beer gives off some sweet malt aromas with some mild floral hops. The smell is unique to say the least, it's almost sweet and herbal also. The taste of the beer has a nice malt profile, mild bitterness in the finish with the sweetness throughout. The mouthfeel of the beer is smooth and very drinkable. Overall it's an interesting brew, moderately different than some other English Bitter's I've had. Still really nice.
