Lots of carbonation out of the bottle. Two finger head died down pretty quick but left a nice cover. Smelled of biscuity malts with floral hints. Tastes like a solid Pale Ale with hops up from and some malts following. Slight bitterness a the end. I actually found it did not deliver enough on the smell for me to give it higher marks here. I good clean refreshing beer that meets its mark but just didnt find it "outstanding."

pale golden with generous foamy head, aroma is slighty hoppy with malt with a hint of pineapple, flavour is rich and rewarding,, strong malt with caramel, a little lemon, nice balance of sweet and sour, really nice beer, very drinkable.

500ml bottle poured into an English pint glass.

Look - Poured a beautiful reddish gold colour with a small but nice looking fine, white head.

Nose - Amazing - very expressive and malty with biscuit aromas, some light spice. Complex.

Palate - Very smooth and well balanced. Complex malt flavours, some orange and toasty flavours and a little spice. Complex Lovely.

Mouth - good and full but not as good as some other similar English Ales.

Some lacing. Medium carbonation.

Wonderful brew. Sessionable.

Highly recommended.

Chalky marmalade on lightly toasted dark bread
In London, it's an honor to review such a classic Pale Ale.
However, our taste is so attuned to more powerful IPAs and Stouts that a pale ale just doesnt hit the higher marks. (That's my jaded mouth.)

A - Pours a crystal clear dark amber copper with a two finger foamy beige head that reduces to a thick rim and leaves significant lacing is observed. Adorable.

S - Moderatearomas of earthy hops along with fruity yeast along with biscuit and cracker. A bit of spice and nut.

T: Taste follows smell with earthy tones. Gets sweeter and better as beer warms, with marmalade as the biscuit and cracker malts. That twinge of orange rind in marmalade on lightly toated dark bread.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and dry in the finish.

O: Infinitely sessionable. A great example of the style.
