12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, golden/amber color with a quarter of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma at all, but I do get faint notes of toasted malt and caramel, but only faint ones at that, and nothing else.

Taste: Pretty good. Nice flavors of toasted malt, imparting notes of toasted English muffins, followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, a touch of black pepper, finished by a touch of nicely balanced hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some decent carbonation. With an ABV of 5.6%, there’s no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good pale ale. Good flavors, nicely balanced. Good session beer.

Poor a rich brown color with a head of redness. Good lacing left around the glass. Smells like most English Pale Ale's I've had. I smell toffee and maybe some caramel as well. A nice malty taste and has a nice sweetness to it as well. One of the better English Pale Ale's I've had in a while, and probably my favorite brew at OBH.
