Picked this up at Ammersino Feine Getränke in Vienna. Clear copper-orange pour with two finger off white head and great lacing. Big floral, perfumy nose with a bready, caramel sweetness. Toast, tea, toffee, and a solid bready, biscuity, sweet malt backbone in the taste. Hints of butterscotch and caramel, and the bitter hops really kick in nicely as it warms for a really well balanced English IPA. Extremely smooth and slightly chewy with a nice bitter, dry finish. For me, this is the definition of a perfect session beer. Full flavored but not extreme. Had no idea this was a seasonal brew. I'm kicking myself for only getting one of these. Fuller's was already one of my favorite breweries, but this beer totally surpassed expectations. Have to get more!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Orange/amber, with a hint of hazyness. Average foam.
In the smell earthly hop, english, with peppery notes, some tea hint. A bit warming. And floreal.
Pleasant taste, good maltiness, good english hopping, not light, but neither too strong. Balanced.
Bitterness in the aftertaste, not too long, with pepper and tea notes.
Good, great drinkability.
