Can: a large, 440mL blue can with an old schooner on it. Decent, though I still have an issue (unreasonable or not) with cans.

Appearance: pours a slightly orange amber colour with sporadic carbonation. A half-finger off-white head hangs about for a time before dropping to a thick ring. Little lacing.

Aroma: smells of bread malts, with a touch of caramel and some floral hops. That traditionally English earthen aroma also - refreshing.

Taste: fairly close to the aroma, but with that earthen flavour bigger in the mouth. Definite bread malts and floral notes. Pretty good.

Aftertaste: the earth drops away somewhat to be replaced with that caramel sweetness on the nose. Lovely.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with moderate carbonation also. I think that is what makes this a better pale ale than most that come out of England - it has a decent amount of carbonation - it doesn't feel as flat as a lot of others.

Overall: quite a decent English Pale Ale, and for an incredible price. Where most of these are well over $80 - $100 for a case, this one was AU$55 for a case of 24 x 440mL (2014), putting it in the same price range as a standard Aussie lager. A good beer for a great price.

Enjoyed 12 oz. on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Bright golden yellow with a small quantity of white head, I am immediately struck by the tropical hop aroma, starfruit, watermelon, and tangerine with an unexpected smokiness. Unique "English golden" ale in that the smoke carries over onto the palate (!), thin and fizzy yet with a robust biscuit and nutty maltiness and a hopping regime that delivers robust citrus/tropical fruit flavors, along with the expected English floral/earthy character in the finish. Includes Citra hops and crystal rye malt which could account for these unique attributes.

Clear amber, thin white fluffy head, nice retention.
Smell is full of biscuit and caramel, with a faint tropical note covered by tasty lime and tangerine.
Taste: grainy biscuity malts, with a nice hoppy fruitiness at first, citrusy tropical as in the smell, a bit toned down. It goes through some pine, quickly to a dry leafy tobacco bitterness in the finish. Slightly salted grains throughout make up the mostly malty taste of the beer.
Smooth medium body and carbonation, refreshing at first but the bitterness piles up quickly, rather dry.
A nice English ale, reallly good in its style.
