A perfectly clear, golden-yellow. A two-finger eggshell colored head. The head looks great and leaves some decent lace, but the head itself is short-lived.
Some faint malt and earthy hop resins. Good, but nothing to write home about.
Medium bodied and crisp. The flavor is earthy with some pale malt and a slight sweetness toward the middle. A very run-of-the-mill English Pale Ale flavor. Not at all a bad thing. It finishes earthy with a bit of resin like hop oil that gives it a dry aftertaste. You could definitely drink a few of these in one sitting but it probably wouldn't be the first beer on my mind as I headed to the bar.
