Had this tonight at a hotel bar. It had a toasted bready taste with some citrus and a grapefruit like bitterness punch at the end, almost like an IPA. It was nice but at the same time it was not a whole lot to it.

Easy drinking ale. Amber color and slightly bitter like a true English ale.

Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a strong ale smell with a hop and yeast mix.
Appearance- This is a pretty good looking amber colored ale, with an off-white head.
Taste- Pretty average ale to me, the yeast flavor isn't bad but it detracts from the overall flavor for me.
Palate- This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. It has an oily feel and has a dry finish.
Overall-Run of the mill ale to me, I love the packaging but that was the best part of the experience.
