This beer poured a pale golden color with a small white head that ran quickly to lace. Retention was very... 'english'
The aroma was mildly bready with earthy hops dancing in the background. Clean grains and a touch of minerals in noticed as the brew warms.
The taste is where this beer gets ya.... A nice clean profile with a hint of light caramel malts and a touch of toasted bread. This is followed immediately by a grassy, garden fresh hop flavor that's a nice change from many American made IPAs. The finish is clean and dry with a nice lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel's a tad bubbly for and 'English style', but it works with this one.... Light and dry, very clean. Surprisingly cool and refreshing for a beer approaching 7%.
Overall, this ones a winner. I'll definitely buy this again!
