3.49/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Poured a semi-hazy, golden color with a white, yellowish head that was surprisingly foamy and had a slow dissipation rate. It left a solid lace and cap as well.
Smell: This had a soft smell, but the hops bled through the most. Perhaps a bit of malt came through as well. The smell was a little too soft to pick up anything really specific.
Taste: The beginning gave a bready malt flavor with a foreshadowing of some hops; the middle cranked down more on the hops, but it was rather light and only semi-bitter; the end is where the bitterness peaked and finished with herbal tones.
Mouthfeel: The feel was very light and consistent through out.
Overall: I'm not too familiar with English-style ales of any form. In general, it was slightly above average, fairly decent. It had a nice look and the taste wasn't overbearing in anyway.
Serving type: bottle
