A: Pours a hazy, murky amber with a thick, puffy off-white head.

S: Aromas of minerals, toffee, dates, and ripe plums mingle with peppery hops on the nose.

T: Notes of toffee, minerals, roasted chestnuts, black walnut, plums, dates, leather, soda bread, and peppery English hops wash across the palate. The finish is straight-forward and quenching with toffee, nutty malt, and spicy hop flavors.

M: This ale is on the lighter side of medium in body and quite dry. Carbonation is firm. Very drinkable.

O: This is one of the better English pale ales I've tried in recent months. I am particularly impressed with the complexity of the flavor profile. Highly recommended.

500 mL bottle,

A: Pours a translucent amber with a finger of white head, great head retention and lace throught the whole pint.

S: Maris Otter malt, some fruit and lemon, but quite light.

T: The flavour is impressive. Strong toffee and biscuit malt, balanced well with some dry, earthy and hearty Goldings flavour. Twinge of sourness mid-palate and finishes bitter.

M: Smooth, medium-bodied but not heavy. Calming hoppy aftertaste. Light carbonation makes it very quaffable.

D: A very nice bitter/pale ale right here. Wish it wasn't so expensive, it could be my new easy drinking British ale to stick with for an evening.

I had this bitter at Chaucer's Pub in London, Ontario. Deep ruby colour with orange hues. Pours a gian rocky white head, leaving plenty of pretty lace. Very fruity aroma off the start (plum), very malty with a good dose of hops. Biscuit and bread as well. Maybe a touch of cherry. The flavour profile is a nice of balance between the sweetness from the malts and a bitter almost piney flavour from the hops. FInishes creamy, buttery maybe, with nice bite from the hopping.
