This beer is rather hyped up so I guess the question is why?
Well, the appearance is pretty generic. A nice orange color, head doesn't last and not lacing. The aroma really gives of a good bit of cereal malt sweetness and a hint of tea perhaps from the hops.
The flavor is rather complex...extremely so. I really like the yeast that fullers uses. There is a certain fruity flavor it gives off that is really nice. From there the malt is grainy and the hops are well English (BTW the big difference in american an english pales and ipas is often said to be the amount of hops. This is wrong. It is the TYPES of hops!) and frankly I just can't get excited for English hops. They just aren't for me.
Easy drinking beer with a LOT going on.
I love how complex this beer is. I really won't bother trying to put words to the flavors. The thing is I'm somewhat indifferent all and all on this one.
