4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured an orange to amber color fading to a lighter shade towards the bottom of the
glass. A light tan head forms on top, about a quarter inch high, staying there and not moving from that height. The malt is striking at first scent, followed by a light grassy scent and the brief fragrance of citrus at the end. Bread and yeast burst from the glass at first taste, that is soon followed by a red grapefruit bitterness, that is very mild in strength. It finishes with grassy and tobacco flavors and those flavors linger for some time. The feel is a tad watery at the front, growing to medium bodied feel, it thickens even more as it reaches the back of the palate. This is an easy sipping English ale, a great session beer, that brings flavor, aroma and texture to the table. Plus, it goes really well with fish and chips.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a tasty brew that goes down easy. Has beautiful sunburst color that reminds me of a Gibson Les Paul. Hoppy aroma balanced by a soft caramel smell, soo good. Taste is of malty goodness along with grassy hops. Full of flavors for it's medium body. Low in carbonation but manages to keep a very thin head on top. Overall this brew rocks! I can see myself coming home from a long day of work and having one or two of these pint bottles in a nonic. Definately will be buying this again. Excellent!
