love the look of the bottle, with the english flag emblazoned on a shield. when poured this ale appeared a dark copper color, with a decent sized head (near white in color) that dissipates quickly with just a few bubbles working their way to the top. looks very inviting. head retention and lacing are just about nil. smells are of hops, lightly roasted malts, and a bit of bready spiciness. the fuggle hops on the palate are apparent right up front, and are certainly not overwhelming, but offer a nice tangy bitterness throughout the sip. a thick breadth of malty sweetness accompanies the hops that i really enjoyed. good combination of fuggle hops and the crystal malts. has a slight toasty flavor i appreciated also. can't put my finger on the spice that is showing through. the finish has a spicy zip with a nice balance of that hop bitterness with the sweets. this ale has a medium body, with moderate carbonation. very nice. i found the drinkability to be a strong suit. i have yet to find a wells that i didn't enjoy. a splendid ale.
