A: This beer pours a nice, bright copper with a fairly short lived 1-finger white head. A bit of lacing for what little head it has.
S: Mild but spicy hop aroma filters through the pear and lightly sweet caramel. There's a bit of bread crust but overall I don't get an overabundance of breadiness in this brew.
T: This brew finishes semi dry beer with a slight sweetness. There's a piney hop component that comes through with some bread crust and a mild pear flavor. It balances a bit to the bitter side but barely. I personally like the balance. It's bitterness is present but not overwhelming and has a low to medium low carbonation. The piney hop lingers in the aftertaste for a short time. The hop bitterness tends to intensify a wee bit as the glass warms.
M: light to medium body, not too thin. a bit more body than a pale ale I think.
O: This is one of my favorite brews. Overall it balances nicely. This beer will appeal to English IPA and brown ale lovers as it has some components of both but balances well enough to pick out these differences. As a fan of English ales, I'd give this one a try.
