A - Brilliantly clear copper colour with a thin off-white head. Head retention is low but lacing is not bad.
S - Not a lot of hops here but what is there is nice a earthy. There is a large amount of sweet malt and caramel on the nose and a touch of fruitiness.
T - Sweet malts are there right up. As the flavour moves on I get some earthy, herbaceous English type hops notes and a mild bitterness. Plenty of fruitiness from the yeast a citrusy, pineapple, peach note. There is also a noticeable alcohol note there. This isn't bad but it isn't as good as it could be.
M - Medium body with an average level of carbonation that provides crispness without being overbearing.
D - This isn't a bad beer by any means. Enough interest to make this a beer worth drinking and a refreshing quality which is quite nice.
