3.88/5 rDev +0.3%
Copper color with a two finger off-white thick head with low retention.
Nice fruity aroma from English hops and sweet malt. Hints of guaraná.
Fruity and bitter balanced flavor. Notes of spicy yeasty, earthy hops, dark fruits, sweet guaraná, caramels and biscuit malts. Dry aftertaste with a pleasant elegant bitterness.
Light body with mild carbonation.
Good exemplar of an English Bitter, very sessionable and still flavorful and pleasant. Recommendable.

Orange amber colour with a thin head about a centimetre tall and slightly frothy. It settles to a fine lacing after about thirty seconds though.
Mix of sweetness and biscuit malts along with some vanilla and a hint of fruit and berries. There is an earthy hop aroma.
Some sweet malts in the taste along with some vanilla and a little honey. The beer taste quite sweet with a lot of fruits bended throughout and a bit of biscuit that is rounded of with a creamy and bitter finish.
Quite creamy with a medium to full body and some sweet and earthy notes mixed together and low carbonation.
Not a bad beer really, good and creamy with nice vanilla and even some honey in there. It is a good example of a pale ale & one that went down well.

A - rusty copper with a thin clinging head
S - sweet malt biscuit. Bizzarely, I get a hint of throat lozenge
T - malt biscuit, caramel with molases. Moderately hopped, but the farewell gives a peppery hop boost.
M - medium bodied and nicely carbonated.
O - the label descibes it as a "classic premium pale ale" but I look at it as more of a premium/special bitter. A favorite english tipple of mine since first tasting. Recommended.

A: Clear amber. Off-white head.
T: Lots of honey but very dry. A sour, dry tanginess which I don't like at all - common in northern style English ales. Faintest touch of marzipan.
O: Decent enough, but not my idea of perfection. Very British, but nothing like the best of what Britain has to offer.
