poured from bottle to teku glass

A- pours a clear, deep amber color with a nice two-finger creamy off-white head that retains nicely, eventually leaving behind some nice lacing

S- caramel and buttery malt, earthy and fruity hops, sweet doughy bread

T- buttery caramel english malt, fruity hops with some herbal and earthy notes, bready malty finish with a caramel linger

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth and silky finish

O- loves the bready caramel sweetness, my favor interpretation of an english pale thus far
