I was pleasantly surprised after pouring this from a 12 oz bottle. The color was a rich, nutty brown with a decent off white head. The aroma was very malty with just a hint of hops. The taste backed up the aroma with a nice caramel malty flavor with just a hint of sweetness in the finish. The mouth feel was rich and the carbonation level very good. I would recommend this one to any fan of English style pale ales.
