550ml bottle in to nonic pint glass
the apearance is a hazy nut brown color ith a frothy offwhite/lightbrown head
the smell is of faint hops and something a little sweeter that reminds me of peanut brittle, but i dont think thats it.
it has a complex yet subtle flavor that seems to be the case with most of the beers i have tried from sam smith. it has a faint hops, with some sweetness nutty flavor that is very faint. it tastes of layers that conintu e to unravel and never overwhelm. there is some malt flavors as well as all the rest, all in harmony
the mouthfeel is medium with a nice roundess that rolls down the throat leaving a very slight dry feeling
very good beer, a little different than american pale ales, and should not be compared(obviously since this is an english pale ale) but it fits the profile extremely well. very enjoyable

Pours a deep amber color with one finger of head. A bit of lacing left on the glass. The smell is light, with some sweetness from malt mixed in with a hoppy aroma. The taste has caramel maltiness and is sweet at first. The finish has a good bit of hops. The body is pretty thick and smooth, and the drinkability is nice. A solid pale ale.

A: Pours a golden orange color with 2 fingers worth of rocky head

S: Slightly fruity yeast, pale malts, and some light earthy hops. Simple, but good

T: Follows the nose. Starts out with plenty of fruity goodness rounded out with pale malts and light earthy hops that provide a nice light bitterness. Again, fairly simple, but good

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A good little English pale with a nice profile and great drinkability. Worthy of the name and a purchase

This beer pours a golden color with a bit of cloudiness. The white lacy head sticks around for a while and leaves a good ring on the side of the glass.

This beer is refreshing with grainy notes and soft alcohol taste and a bit of hops on the back of the tongue, crisp with light carbonation that is again refreshing.

Overall this a flavorful, easy-to-drink beer with the added bonus of being made with organic ingredients.
