This poured to an amber and copper color with a medium head that shrank but never disappeared. The lace is medium.
The smell is somewhat light, but nice and full of biscuit and malt flavor. The taste is classic and bold while giving way to a substantial hop flavor in the end. It's solid in the mouth and easy to drink.

a very subdued, clean, easy-drinking, decidedly American version of an English bitter (not quite of ESB proportions)... arguably the most enjoyable of their lighter offerings
A: light golden-amber, slight chill haze, yet later clearer.... small amount of spitty foam clinging round the collar.... looks like a pleasant drop
S: clean aromas... mild pale malt with a slight toasty, cereal tone... very-lightly daisy-like floral (hoppy?) tone but the malt is most present... some light golden bread crust
T: very light caramel up front, immediately followed by a nearly moderately-bold dry-grass flavor from the hops.... just bitter enough to take notice, nice balance... the caramel flavor carries through and is merely in flavor, not sweetness
M: quite crisp and clean (perhaps a little too...) but not without a lovely mild honeyish roundness kissing the tongue.... could've used a bit more of that roundness - considering how it drops off fairly dry, there'd be no danger in giving it a lil more body
O: tried quite a few of their beers in the 3 visits I made to the pubs - this definitely stuck out - something that anyone could enjoy, something with some memorable character
Serving type: on-tap
