Poured a very nice burnished copper color with some nice head and decent lacing throughout. Decent scent with a bit of maltiness and a bit of nice earthy English hops. Nice flavors, with some nice two-row (I'm guessing), a slight caramel hint, and some very excellent earthy and slightly floral hop tones; a very nice merging of hops and malts. Goes down very smooth, this is a wonderful brew that delivers a very nice bitter style.
