Into a pint glass:

A: crystal clear copper yet transparent colored body and has a light amount of carbonation seen rising. The small white head only lasts about a minute and then dies. It leaves spotty yet foamy rings as the beer goes down.

S: pale malts with some fruitiness. However, I did detect some soap as well.

T: very light bitterness with the pale malts and the fruits coming back, however there really isn't much exciting about this beer.

M: light, and a bit watery with not a whole lot of carbonation. This is a pretty drinkable beer.

O: this is nothing special. I was hoping for a really great Spring brew, but am slightly disappointed. I'd only have this on tap depending upon what else was served.

Poured this traditional English Pale Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a clear copper color, produced a think white head, poor retention and left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of toasted malt, caramel and herbal hops. Medium bodied, a foundation of toasted malt, caramel and some slight hop bitterness. It starts off with a decent dose of malted grain but fades quickly and has some what of a watery character. Much to thin for my liking-

A light and bright amber with a foamy, two centimetre thick head that looks quite creamy and stays for a good while even leaving some lacing on the glass.

Almost no noticeable smell from this one other than some toasted bread, very light malts and a sort of earthy, nutty aroma but on the whole it is pretty weak on the nose.

Earthy nut aroma with some bread, toasted malts and slightly sweet toffee taste and hints of caramel. This one was basic and just what I was expecting from the style.

Light medium with medium to strong carbonation and slightly grainy finish that is quite dry.

Another pretty basic and fairly standard pale ale here, it wasn't particularly enjoyable and the smell was almost undistinguishable but nothing in the beer was offensive or harsh, just a little plain.

A: A medium amber with good clarity. A half an inch of rocky, off-white head with good retention.

S: Esters dominate. There is a moderate fruitiness that is kind of between cider and apple with a moderately-light malt sweetness with a light toasted aroma. No diacetyl, no hops.

T: A moderate malt sweetness with slight grainy and toasted notes. Moderately-low hops bitterness and almost no hops flavor. There is more of that pear and apple in the taste as well. The balance is fruity and slightly bitter with an off-dry finish. Aftertaste of bitter and apples.

M: medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slight dryness on the back of the tongue.

O: This was fruit and odd without enough balance and a bit too much sweetness.
