12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.

A - clear bright orange copper color. Nice foamy head with good lacing and ok retention.

N - yeasty and malty . Floral hops. Tastes British, appropriately.

T - light and floral hops. Toasty biscuits. Ringwood yeast.

M - light and crisp. Really drinkable.

O - Reminds of summer. Ive had a lot of these over the years and I will probably have many many more.

Best by 7/2013.

Pours a hazy light orange with a foamy light tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy broken rings of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with some grassy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp but somewhat medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a pretty good smell but the taste doesn't match up in my opinion.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Relatively clear. Slight chill haze. Deep gold that falters a bit at the edges. Head is bright-white and drops to a small creamy collar and spotty head. Moderate carbonation pulls throughout.

Smell: Floral and fruity. Apples and flowers. Touches of citrus. Strong pale malt presence. Vaguely bready with a sharp soggy cracker. Ringwood yeast asserts itself from the start. Sweet, decidedly so. Biscuit dough.

Taste: Sweet caramelized biscuit dough. Layers of flowers and apple skin. A bit grassy with a decidedly herbal overtone. Cooked and caramelized malts. Big punch of yeast on the finish. Hops are minimal allowing the pale malts to take over. Some darker, amber, malts as well.

Mouthfeel: Light body with a moderate carbonation. Relatively clean with a lingering yeasty flavor.

Overall: Ship this anywhere but here.

Not a terrible beer, but not a great beer by any stretch. Pale and sweet. Easy to drink with low impacts. I guess I can see the appeal.
