Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Really clear rich amber brown color. A light cream head dissipates to a spotted film of white. Light spots of lacing remain.

Aroma: Sweet roasted grains and barley dominate with a really sweet caramel and toffee behind all of the earthy grains.

Taste: Sweet, malty, and earthy with tea leaf tanginess in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, slightly dry.

Overall: Well balanced and quite frankly, very flavorful.

Just found out today that Hays, KS (or Hays America as locals sometimes say) had a brewery! As a caveat, I'm a fan of the English style bitters, mild ales, and pale ales.

Poured into a standard US pint glass (e.g., it's really only 14 ounces), and had a nice thick two finger heard which settled down to a pencil thick foam with nice lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell is mild and on the malty side with maybe some light toffee.

Taste is malty with very little hops noticeable. Bit of tea like astringency.

Mouthfeel is dry and light to medium body.

Overall, a really nice example of the style. I hope this new, small brewery doesn't go under as this is a very sessionable beer that will now be in my rotation of regular beers.
