Poured from a 550ml bottle into a tall goblet.
A. A rich amber colour with an off-white head that gradually subsides to a rim of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S. Bready malts and Golden Syrup-like sweetness.
T. A really good balance of sweet malts and subtle hops which come together in a taste that's greater than the sum of its parts. The sweetness is not overdone but there's still a good malt flavour to get your tongue around, and the hop character, while subdued, leaves a delicate bitter finish in the back of the throat.
M. Light to medium.
O. While there's nothing outstanding about this beer there's nothing wrong with it either. It's a very good, well made example of the style. Not every beer has to blow my socks off - most of the time I'm looking for something that's just plain good, and this fits the bill perfectly.

this pops out of the bottle like a 16 year old popping a broad for the first time, golden brown with an amber hue, the head fades quickly, lots of carbonation keeps what little head there is alive, lacing is spotty, the brew is pretty clear, an average looking brew
strong brown honey musty note, herbal hops with some biscuit notes on the end, distant lemon notes enter the fray, mostly you get the malt as the dominate player here, bad
much like the nose this is sweet malt forward, pretty hefty weight wise, the carbonation is prickly (I would actually like a smidge more bite here), the hops have a slight bittering but mostly herbal almost slightly medicinal flavor to them, nothing great, nothing offensive
ok, nothing special, well crafted but decidedly mild
