look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: In a style filled with stellar-looking brews, this one isn't particularly special. Somewhat hazy honey-yellow with a white head and poor retention.

Smell: Yummy English pale ale-ish buttery notes are the first thing I notice, reminiscent of crackers and marron glacés. A sweet, caky Belgian yeast character is noticeable in the background, along with some clear vodka-like alcohol, orange peel (which expresses itself sort of like Cointreau) and subtly fruity-floral hops, redolent of apples, pears, cider, and carnations.

Taste: Very English, in a way, with a pronounced hard water quality that doesn't quite gel with the beer's otherwise delicate estery tones. Orange is quite pronounced in a subdued way (if that makes sense), like pleasant background music. Vanilla, buttery biscuits, honey, nutmeg-like spice, and triple sec round out the flavor. Finish is very yeasty, with a lingering bready tang.

Mouthfeel: Airy and medium-bodied; dry, but not too dry.

Drinkability: This is a very nice beer with a somewhat unique character for the style. The alcohol comes through rather strongly for a beer of only 7% ABV, but somehow this doesn't make it less drinkable. Recommended!

Hazy golden beer with a big, rocky, white head. Quite a bit of lacing ended up on the glass. Light fruit and spice in the nose, quite sweet with some alcohol. Flavour is sweet up front with some pear. Light bitterness that leads into a medium dry finish that has some pepperiness and alcohol warmth at the end. Texture is a bit creamy, medium body, carbonation on the lower side.
