for the style, well above average appearance, with a sturdy white head, some good lacing that dissipates after a few minutes...dark blonde beauty. nose has a wonderful freshness of light malts and hops...very balanced. nothing complex, but that's not part of the style. so far, so good. refreshing. bold. this is where the taste ups the ante. again, complexity not at play, but there's a perfect balance of malt graininess and hop presence. if anything, if i was doing a blind taste test, i would think this was an ESB. full bodied, plenty to taste. an all-around anytime brew that i could easily session alone or with good pub fare. i can't help but laugh at how folks rate some beers so severely. remember the style. the pale ale isn't an ipa

The beer pours a beautiful dark golden color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is decent. It has a light and fruity pale malt scent along with a bit of yeast esters and a bit of English hops. It's pretty tame while showcasing the malts. The taste is good. It has a very quaffable pale and Munich malt flavor. It's a tad sweet with a touch of English hops in the finish. It goes down easy with minimal yeast fruitiness that only enhances the taste. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good drinking beer. It's light and flavorful while being well balanced and quite quaffable.

I poured the bottle into a glass and it has a golden color with a very slight cloudiness. The smell is reminds me a lot like Harp. The taste is very good. It has a slight wheat taste with a great after taste. The beer is very smooth and really easy to drink. Over all this is a good beer, but isnt anything I would go out of my way to get.

I kinda like this stuff, I'm surprised. Just taking a break after a few heavy-IBU IPA's.
A= deep golden, nice big foamy white head, lots of lacing, some rimming.
S= interesting-- nice musty sweet malts, and notes of something like berry & watermelon.
T= slightly crisp, slightly to the watery side of average but very nice-- sweet malts, slightly grassy; lingering berry watermelon notes. Typical English hops in modest but balanced amount.
M= minimally astringent on tongue, with the lingering malts and berry-watermelon notes or whatever.
O= interesting offering, a decent blonde, more creative than many in the micro craft realm, surprisingly.

A: Golden orange with a thin white head. Carbonation is visible.
S: Caramel and biscuity malt with a bit of citrus hops.
T: Follows the smell with some biscuit and caramel with a bit of citrus hops on the finish.
M: Medium with medium carbonation.
O: Solid beer at a decent price. Good one to have around.

From a mixed twelver bought at Sprouts in Round Rock.
Honey gold color, soft fluffy head that laces nicely..slightly cloudy. Nice looking beer in a pint glass.
Sweet bready malty scent...a bit buried though.
Taste follows...lightly sweet cooked sweetbread initially, followed by a a slighty astringent aftertaste...hop bite is there, and a bit of flavor, a bit more buried than I would like though...but not too shabby.
A very smooth beer though, super easy to drink...a good session brew for those who want low abv but a bit of flavor.
Dundee has put out a very respectable English Pale Ale here. Give it a try.

When I am not drinking beer from a CAN and I am at home, I do not mind bottles. I am somewhat curious to try the entire Dundee oeuvre and I recently found singles of most of the ones that I have not previously reviewed.
From the bottle: "Classic and Clean"; "Back in merry olde England, the roadside inns were abuzz with banter and smiling glances from buxom barmaids - barmaids who we might add, brewed the ale they served. In their honor, our brewers treat each batch of Dundee English-Style Ale they brew with the same love and care as the barmaids of old, combining pale and caramel malts with Columbus and Cascade hops for a malty, slightly sweet finish. Now, if only they'd stop dressing like barmaids ...
I like it when a busty bamaid winks at me while drawing me a cask ale. Here, she's even stirring the pot all the while! My pour netted me just over a finger of dense, tawny head with great retention. Color was a deep golden-amber with NE-quality clarity and lots of carbonation in evidence. Nose was very malty-sweet. Mouthfeel was medium and it was a very pleasant beer to drink. It was on the sweet side, but not so much as to be overwhelming. I also got some great lacing beginning to appear in the glass. Finish was semi-sweet but quite quaffable and satisfying. Once again, at the price point, it was definitely worthwhile.

Pours gold with the slightest amber hue. Medium white head stays in the form of a thin cap and leaves small strings of lace.
Malty, buttery aroma with some grassy hop. Flavor is much the same. Sweet malt, butterscotch/caramel and fruitiness is balanced by an earthy hop quality. Finishes sweet and turns a touch dry.
Medium Body with crisp carbonation.
Not the best EPA I've ever had, but not unpleasant and drinkable enough.

i thought this was a much better beer than the people here are giving credit for. it pours clear and boring, a little copper in color, but too flat in luster for that, and with only a quarter inch of white fading head. the smell was also a little pedestrian, with english caramel and pale malts being the most visible, and some hop i cant immediatey identify, but its bitter and ancient, some goldings or something. the flavor is the same, but the finish makes this beer, its dry and clean as a palace floor, with some low key hops crackling over the palate. love the way this feels, bubbly carbonation above the dry finish, and a plenty drinkable light medium body. some toasty notes to wash it down, this was a good offering from dundee, not spectacular, but a step in the right direction for sure. the star of the most recent mixed box.
