Appearance: yellow/brown more yellow on the spectrum.
Aroma of light malt.
Taste: not much here. light malt, slight hint of some hops.
Palate: very light mouthfeel.
Overall: depends on what you are looking for. Easy drinking beer better than your classic lager but not as good as many beers out there.

Poured cold from the bottle.

This beer poured a slightly hazy gold/amber colour with a ead that disappeared right away. There's really not much to the smell at all; a little bit of a wheat/yeast maybe. A very pronounced wheat taste that is not the most pleasing. Pretty much a craft-beer version of Bud Light...

Would I buy it again? Absolutely not.

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.

pint glass.

a -pours a hazy, pale amber color with lots of streaming bubbles visible. gave me a thin cap of sudsy, off white head that quickly calmed to a film. thin leggy lacing.

s - toffee, dark fruits, faint buttered bread.

t - toffee malt with a nondescript fruitiness and faint earthiness. finishes dry and malty.

m - medium in body with more than enough carbonation. an extremely coarse co2 profile scrubs away most of the flavor before i have time to really take note of it.

o - meh. not too bad for a cheapie, but you get what you pay for. hits most of the style points at least.

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.

A new beer in the mixed sampler 12 pack. Pours a light golden color, pretty good amount of carbonation. Faint hop aroma. Nice mouthfeel, medium bodied, surprisingly refreshing. Some hops rise through, maybe a bit of a citrus or lemon tinge, with a nice clean finish. Not the most exciting of styles, but this is a pretty damn good beer. Sipped it down pretty quick and looking forward to the next one of these in the pack.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden color with a light haze and a billowy white head. The head fades fast to give a lighter amount of lacing.

Smell – The aromas are relatively light, but consist of a bread and caramel aroma.

Taste – A malty flavor meets the tongue. A little bit of caramel sweetness is present up front and intensifies as the flavor moves toward the middle. The breadiness forms a base but toward the middle the caramel starts to fade as a lighter yeasty flavor begins working its way into the tongue. This flavor remains mild and mixes with the bread and a very light citrus flavor at the end which bring the taste to its finish.

Mouthfeel – Medium to just above medium in body with a average level of carbonation. The body suits the abv and malty flavors well. Not bad for the style; it’s very drinkable.

Overall – Not too bad. The beer is easy to drink, has great price, and has a good flavor without being too high in abv. A good session.

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.
