This beer pours out a clear copper color with a huge foamy head. As the head slowly recedes a fair bit of lacing is left behind.
I mostly smell caramel and malt (probably part of the caramel as well), something else is in there too, but I can't quite nail it down.
It tastes very good. I haven't had many bitters style, but this one's pretty good to me. It tastes smooth, almost buttery, with that caramel that I smelled, as well as those smooth tasting malts. At the end there's just a little bitter hoppiness, but not enough to be unpleasant.
The mouthfeel of this beer is surprisingly smooth, and I would definitely be OK drinking this for an evening. Overall, a very enjoyable beer.
