Deep, clear tawny orange colored ale. Rich tan head that receded quickly, leaving minimal lacing.
An almost musty, earthy aroma to this beer, something Ive yet to smell since Ive been trying different beers and ales. Some sweet caramel malt is also noticeable
Nice rich malt in front that tasted slightly nutty and caramel-like. Hop bitterness lurks underneath initially before making its self known more towards the finish. Some metallic taste was also apparent, but that only added to the englishness of this ale. Finishes dry from the hop.
Smooth and medium bodied, this ale goes down easily. Could be a session brew for certain.

12oz single purchased from Wegman's in Collegeville, PA. BB date of June '14. Appropriately (or inappropriately) poured into an '09 NY Yankees World Series Champions pint glass.
A-crisp, clear golden/orangish color. ton of bubbles. solid finger of white foam, decent retention. looks refreshing and tasty. good amount of lacing left on the glass.
S-citrus. some bready notes. I don't detect a whole lot. no hop aroma.
T-toasted flavor. some caramel malts. lemony/sour finish
M-light bodied. little carbonation-which is strange given the continuous bubbles rising. very smooth, creamy texture.
O-easy to drink. low ABV. smooth and refreshing. These factors make this a very drinkable ale. however...there is nothing that makes it stand out. definitely wont satisfy those looking for the big hop flavor. not a favorite, but could see myself putting another back as I'm grilling after work.
