Copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Aroma of pine, caramels, biscuit malt, condiments, charred oak and licorice.
Taste follows nose. Pleasant flavor with notes of toasted malt, peppery yeast, caramel, charred oak, pine, licorice, mild herbal and tangy citrusy, English hops and green apples. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with good carbonation.
Nice American take on English bitter, tasty but still mellow. Malty but well balanced with a relatively decent amount of hops.
