I poured this beer cool from the bottle and it poured a very dark and clear amber/mahogany with a one finger tan head that stays as a ring around the glass and leaves nice light lacing, but not much.
There are aromas of roasted grains, dark sweet malts and bread. mmm Bread! only very light though. I don't get much in the way of fruity esters perhaps a tiny bit.
The taste is straightforward and roasted malts with some caramel sweetness with a dry and very mild hoppiness at the end. It's almost balanced but more sweet than hoppy. Nothing about the flavour is over the top as the beer is a bit thin which keeps it all in line.
Mouthfeel is of a sweet nature with the body kind of lighter than you would expect with a beer of this colour. It more has the body of a lager. The carbonation can feel flat, and perhaps that is why I feel the body is thin. The carbonation seems more apparent at the finish. It's different!
Overall I find this beer incredibly good especially for a session beer that you could drink all night as it has the roasted notes and caramel that I love in a British beer and is yet not overly sweet. The body is a bit lacking but that is why it is sessionable and fits with the style so I am going to have to give this beer at least a 4 out of 5.
If you drink butweezer, put that urine down and try one of these. I would be a great beer to help ease yourself off of your addiction to garbage!

this is my first airport review!
reddish copper color with no head, but i wouldn't trust airport glassware to be optimal for froth (froth certainly isn't encouraged in such establishments--or the rest of the macro-drinking nation)
sweet aroma. husky/grainy
breadcrusty flavors with esters that grow as the beer warms; appropriate bitterness. not much depth of flavor but that might be acceptable in this style. softer nutty elements creep in with the warmth
Serving type: on-tap
