A: Light golden color, with big foamy head at the top that barely leaves any lacing, this looks like guiness basically.

S: Not to much of a nose on this brew, some malts and some sweetness, nothing crazy.

T: Same as the nose, bit of maltyness, some sweetness, and slight hint of hops, no to much going on here.

M: Medium bodied, smooth, and creamy.

O: Nothing crazy, a simple pale ale.

Let me begin by saying I am not a super fan of British ales, with the exception of bitters. Take that in mind when reading this review. This is one of the sexiest pours I have ever seen from a lighter brew. Even with an experienced pour, the head will consume nearly 3/4 of the glass and quickly "roll up" the glass into a uber creamy 2 finger head. This creamy head sticks around. The nose is slight, but includes bananas and some malt. The taste is a disappointment from such an attractive pour. It's a little watery, with notes of bananas and very mild floral hops. I enjoy the creamy mouth feel and the brew isn't bad, it's actually very drinkable, but it's lacking in complexity and I wish it were more robust. All that said, I honestly have a similar view when drinking most standard British pub ales, at least this one pours sexy and has a cool mouth feel.

Appearance - Pours a somewhat clear, light orange hue with a thin creamy head.

Smell - I can smell the bitter yeast and floral notes.

Taste - Pretty bitter. Has a subtle sweetness, along with a floral and bready aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light body with low carbonation.

Overall - This is definitely one of the better pale ales.
