12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/8/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of big lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, light fruitiness, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Good amount of dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very good English pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

On draft for $4.00 for 22oz. Darker straw yellow. Faintly malty sweet aroma. Starts off better than it ends. Better beers often release better flavors as they warm, inferior beers often suffer when they warm; this beer is the latter. Adjunct bitterness pervades at the end when it warms.
