Pours amber with a reddish hue, small-to-medium head, and some lace. Nose is flowery and herbal...mild but reasonable. Taste has some fruity malt and more of that earthy/herbal quality. All-in-all, it isn't a bad beer, but it isn't really doing much for me either.

500 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Purchased while on vacation in the UK.

Appearance - clear but dark amber in color. Decent finger of white head and sparse lacing left behind.

Smell - clean, with some English hop presence, a subtle spiciness, and a very gentle fruity aroma as well.

Taste - a little more fruit, dark berries, currants and plums. Some earthy and leafy hops backing. Gentle sweetness.

Mouthfeel- super easy drinking, smooth, with moderate carbonation.

Overall - another fine English beer enjoyed while away.

On cask, poured into a nonic. The aroma is very mellow and muted with light notes of citrus and resin. The beer pours an oily, deep caramel colored hue with an off-white, fluffy foam head that retains well and leaves a good, fluffy lace. The taste is a blend of medium sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is oily and slick with a flat, smooth carbonation, and a medium light body. Caramel, nuts, and tangerines compose the flavor profile with a smooth finish with mostly flavors of caramel and orange. The aftertaste is sticky and waxy with a citrus and bread crust quality.

Draft pint in pub. Adequate head with lots of lacing. Nice amber colour Very hoppy with citrus flavours. Clean taste to it. It's very nice but nothing very special.
