Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- a good aroma of caramel malt and some earthy notes. Appearance- A nice copper colored brew with a an inch thick tannish head. Taste- A great tasting beer in a style that I have not fully appreciated yet (ESB). It has a very nice caramel malt flavor with a backdrop of hops. Palate- This is a medium bodied beer that has moderate carbonation. this is a great combo. Overall- This brew is a very good, I would definitely recommend others to try. Oh and did I mention the awesome label art?

1 PT 0.9 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in an imperial nonic

A - It is clear and amber in color. It is capped with several inches of off-white head.

S - I smell fresh cut grass. It also has a metallic smell.

T - I taste some toast and light caramel.

M - Thin

O - I have noticed that every beer label that has to proclaim itself a "premium" beer is usually not good. This is no exception.

Clean copper appearance, with a good foa, off-white, and long standing.
English smell, with some pepper, som etea, and earthly notes. Standard, but pleasant.
Similar notes in the mouth, clean and drinkable.
Well done beer, balanced, classic, easy to drink.
