Look: It pours cooper with a slightly off white head. Head retention is low.

Smell: The aroma has moderate malt with caramel and moderate fruit most like stone fruit.

Taste: The initial flavors are moderate bread with moderately low nuts. There is a bit of a toffee flavor in the background with some stone fruit.

Feel: It has a medium body with medium low carbonation. It also has a mostly dry finish.

Overall, a very easy drinking and flavor able beer.

Off white head. Copper color.

Bready malts and some toffee. Caramel. Very English ale forward. Biscuity. Smooth with a nice mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Well done English style ale.

Had a pint on draft at P.F. Chang’s for $4 on happy hour

Half inch of white head, slightly amber body, minimal lacing

Aroma is sweet bread, not much else

Taste has a slight earthy hop but mostly sweet biscuit flavor, maybe corn?

Feel is watery and light, maybe refreshing to some but personally was very reminiscent of a session

Overall I know English variants aren’t meant to have any hop character but I guess I expected more from the Malts

If this is a proper representation of the style I have no need to revisit.
