Currently listed as an APA. This is not an APA in anyway. I would best describe this as an EPA.

Bright light gold with a thin white head and mild carbonation.

Aroma is loaded with herbal and grassy hops. Lively and spicy. Floral too. Like a walk in an English garden in the spring time.

Flavor is just great. Biscuity and grainy malts balance loads of very interesting and complex hops. There is a lot going on here and a full array of flower petals, Mediterranean herbs, and touches of spice can be tasted.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, round, with moderate bitterness and wonderful herbal/spice qualities.

Sessionable.

A-Slightly hazy copper with a thin off-white head taht left spotty lacing.

S-Weak earthy hops and a slight bready malt aroma.

T-Rather unexciting. Decent malt body but when you expect a nice hoppy bite to accompany you don't get it! Not very happy with this, was expecting more.

M-Medium-light, thin for the style. Where is the creamy textures? Not to exciting.

D-Boring to me, not what I want in an Enlgish Pale on cask. Dull, not worthy of another pint...why waste the alcohol on something so bland?!
