Love their ESB and therefore decided to try their regular pale ale. Here goes:

A: Orange-amber, small head but good lacing, clear. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. 4/5

S: Mild smattering of hops, some bready baker's yeast, and caramel and amber malts. Somewhat grainy, which is not necessarily a plus. However, the caramel malt is pretty distinct, which makes the beer smell pretty good. 4/5

T: Good, but not great. Hops aren't really apparent, the baker's yeast adds a nice, bready feel, but the malt is somewhat underwhelming. By this, I mean to say that while the caramel is nice and all, it's barely present relative to the grainy characteristics. I guess I was expecting the ESB. Beer is nice and toasty, however. 3/5

M: Nice and crisp. Very sessionable. 4/5

O: A good beer with some drawbacks. Not as good as Fuller's ESB. More malt would improve the beer substantially.

Date: 9/2/14
Location: Halftime Mamaroneck
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: An Amber beer in color that moves towards a light orange when held to the light. Moderate white head with plus retention. Not much cling. The beer lets a lot of light in, the beer is not difficult to see through when held to the light.
Aroma: English malts hit me first with a very light white bread aroma. The hops follow second as a get a slight bitterness involving orange peel and maybe just a hint of lemon.
Taste: The malts evolve more as a flavor in the taste as I'm now getting more bread, a little nuttiness, and some pale malts. The hops move to the back as the flavor does not hit me as hard as the aroma but I'm still getting orange peel, orange water and a hint of lemon.
Mouthfeel: Medium light to medium in body. Medium high in carbonation. The carbonation is of note because it's helping to keep many of the hop flavors on my tongue for an extended period of time. It's really quite refreshing. The malts add a hint of coarseness at the back of my throat but they are working well within the beer.
