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

A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some light apricot highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to a medium sized patch of mottled very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts with hints of caramel sweetness.
T: Upfront the beer is slightly sweet with a moderate flavor of biscuit malts and just a touch of caramel notes in the sweetness. Hints of butter and toffee with a light note of earthy hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.
O: Easy to drink and sessionable. Nice complexity of flavor and definitely one to enjoy again.
Serving type: bottle
