Poured from bottle into unchilled pint glass after a tough workout.
Appearance: Amber-colored, average head and lacing
Smell: Getting a lot of malty bready goodness. No hop profile at all.
Taste: This is pretty good. Definitely more on the malt side of the equation, but not sickingly sweet - decent balance. You can't really notice the hops, but they must be there to provide balance.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, with nice carbonation.
Drinkability: Very sessionable, as all English pales should be
Serving type: bottle

Drank on-tap at the local Flying Saucer. Appearance is a hazy, nondescript copper, with a white head that creates no lacework and has little retention. Nose is watery, with notes of corn. Tastes like it couldn't decide what it wanted to be when it grew up: an English ale? A pint of Yeungling? As other reviewers have noted, hop and malt characteristics are poorly matched, as if someone had blended a so-so lager with an ale. Although some of the characteristics might have been likeable in a more balanced beer, it's less than the sum of its parts. I did not enjoy it at all and would certainly not try it again.
Serving type: on-tap
