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!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance is amber with an ok thin head and good lacing.

The aroma is of mild English hops and malts. Quite inviting.

The taste is, again, mild English hops and malt with marmalade and honey notes and a bitter but mild finish.

Mouthfeel is medium.

Overall this is a good, well balanced English bitter. It is not spectacular but certainly enjoyable.

My mark out of 100 is 79.
