Loved it. One of the best, if not the best, examples of the style I've had.

Golden orange Color. Almost like a burnt sienna. Nit a whole lot of head due to the tulip glass.

On the nose I'm getting floral notes along with some caramel or cracker.

Taste is caramel, toffee, musk, floral hops, grass, toast and butter, peanut brittle, and spice. This is not to say that hops are not present! They are, and they're glorious.

This beer goes down smoothly. It's medium bodied and very creamy. The flavor adds to the smoothness.

I think this beer is underrated. This is one of the best English pale ales on the market. Flavor is complex as hell and keeps me wanting more.

Pours a dark Amber color. Hints of caramel on the nose. Taste follows the nose. A so so pale ale not my favorite
