look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Brilliantly clear copper color, with about a half inch of bubbly head that hangs on for a minute or two. The nose has a doughy malt character with touches of fruit and a light grassy hoppiness. It's clean yet complex at the same time. Not too intense, but quite lovely nonetheless.
The malt has a butter cookie-like sweetness that melds well with the bittering hops lingering through the finish. Clean, with a light body, it seems slightly watery but workable for an ale of it's strength. The carbonation feels light, yet prickly on the tongue.
A very solid English Pale. It is balanced and easy to drink, but if I'm having a Fuller's I think I'll stick with the ESB most of the time.

A: Beautiful copper hue with a thick one inch head and great retention and solid lacing
S: Very bready with some grassy elements as well as a touch of lemon and tea leaves--so bready; what I love about these aromas is that they are seemingly simple yet so layered and deceivingly complex
T: Bready yet there is a nice grassy hop bitterness--a touch of a lemon and tea leaf flavor on back end but mostly grassy and grainy hops and malts--so refreshing
F: Creamy; nice light carbonation; good chewy medium body
O: Such a fantastic, easy drinking, refreshing, beautiful beer; what every session-like ale should try to emulate

On tap at Brit's Pub in Minneapolis
A: Copper color Nice head that fell into a thin collar.
S: Slight apple scent and a little bit of some tropical fruits, smells a little sweet.
T: Nice balance of malts with a tiny hint of hops on the backend. Has a nice sweetness and tartness come through from green apples. Nothing overpowers, all blends well.
M: Medium bodied beer with minimal carbonation.
Nothing overpowering or unique here. Good beer to have at the pub, would have again but nothing too special.
Serving type: on-tap
