Poured the second half of a bottle into a collins glass.
Clear amber body with jonquil and gold highlights and a thin white surface slick.
Medium hop aroma in the nose, suggesting English noble varieties with hints of pepper and hay. Crackery malt base is to the front as well. I think I lucked out and got a bottle free of light-stricken-skunk.
Soft, faintly sulfur-y palate entry with dry biscuity malt cleansing the palate and offsetting the clean moderate bitterness from hops which adds a zesty quality, though not a lot of additional flavors (this isn't an APA after all). Very dry, earthy, mineral-laden suggests river stones.
Light-bodied, but not thin - low but sufficient carbonation.
A distinguished yet simple English pale ale - not as good as a proper cask offering, I'm pleased to pick this up when I'm in the mood for the style.
