3.28/5 rDev +0.9%
Beer pours a solid amber color, with a little bit of white foam.
Beer smells a bit grassy and slightly of sweet caramel malts. Not very hoppy.
Beer taste sweet and malty, with a bit of spicy and slightly floral hops on the back end. Not too terribly overpowering.
Mouthfeel is slightly carbonated but very easy drinking.
An OK pale ale.

3.18/5 rDev -2.2%
A blighty good brew the bottle says... Well its certainly an "ok" one...
Appearance: Quite bright, almost florescent straw color with a hint of caramel. Not much head going on but there seems to be some nice lacing an a halo of foam around the meniscus.
Smell: Straight forward, simple and understated. Gently hopped with what I presume is traditional English bittering hops. Good malt balance. Slight metallic note but nothing truly off putting.
Taste: Pretty well balanced but unremarkable. No off flavours really. This would be very drinkable stuff.
Mouthfeel: Nicely carbonated, and nice bitter finish
Overall: Not great, but decent. A good addition to their excellent and world famous brown ale.

3.1/5 rDev -4.6%
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature Glass.
Color: Clear amber with a khaki head.
Smell: Bready malts up front followed by cinnamon and brown sugar.
Taste: I get the bready malts and cinnamon up front follwed by the brown sugar.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, Smooth with a medium dryness on the palate.
Overall: Light bodied with an OK blance. Not a bad brew by any means. Just not going to go buy a six pack of it. Worth a try for sure. Cheers.
