Orange Amber pour with a thinning quickly fading head. Smells malty with some grassy hop. Taste is grassy, lightly citric-sour, crackers and malt. Light body with a crisp carb. Finish is clean. Lingering sour hop. Overall is okay, enjoy the clean finish but the flavors aren't my favorite.

I love the reference to my favorite comedy troupe and in English fashion this seems to emulate an English Pale Ale pretty well. Low on hop flavor it drinks with a significant barley and grainy maltiness. Very light and easy to drink it may be a bit on the carbonated side.
