look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Subtle amber color. Slight lacing.
Smell: English hops dominate the nose.
Taste: Again, English hops, nicely balanced with crisp malt. Pale Ales aren't known for overflowing complexities, but this taste profile has a few layers. Mildly bitter aftertaste from the hops.
Mouthfeel: Thin, but in a suitable way which coexists well with the flavors involved.
Drinkability: This would make an excellent session pale ale with its low ABV and modest but distinct flavors.
Overall, I'm glad to say I've now tried one of the classic English pale ales. Didn't blow me away, but I wasn't expecting it to. It does deserve its status as a classic. From now on, it will be an obvious choice when I get a hankering for a pale ale.
Serving type: on-tap
