look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a golden copper with a one-finger, creamy, off-white head. Leaves some lacing
Smells of good malt and little hop.
A wonderful malty taste with a good hop finish. This is much more enjoyable than I expected.
Extremely creamy smooth finish with just enough hop bite in the end. Very refreshing. Some graininess.
Overall, I like this much more that other BA's do. Will get again.

12 oz. Bottle
ABV: 5%

Poured into a chalice a pretty nice clean/clean golden amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, kinda yeasty, with some toffee. The taste is pretty nice, malty, kinda yeast, with some toffee, nice little sweetness. Medium body, ABV hidden pretty nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

looks: Golden copper with nice lacy head that last
Smell: Toffee, malty and slight hint of hops
Taste: bitterness with a malty toffee with a hint of butter- very smooth.
Feel medium feel - easy drinking
Overall: On high end of Special Bitter Ale class. Not an ESB due to hop rate an ABV.
Very pleasant English ale.

The beer is a reddish amber color with a thin but lasting smooth, silky head. The beer smells sweet with a strong toffee aroma with a slight hint of bitterness. The beer is malty and sweet and very typical for this English style. The beer is super smooth with a dry, slightly bitter finish

From a 500ml clear glass bottle.
L: Clear red/amber colour with a thin head but lots of lacing.
S: Lots of sweet, malty, toffee goodness.
T&F: Creamy, sweet & malty. Light body with a crisp finish.
O: A classic English bitter. The slightly higher ABV gives it a subtle edge and a lift. Smooth, soft & refreshing.
