on tap at BCBB into a tumbler

Appearance is a clear caramel/copper with a nice clean white head and a good amount of carb visible. There is actually some lacing at the top. Smell is somewhat subdued and consists mostly of floral hops also featuring a light fruitiness and some caramel malt. Taste is quite floral again, reminiscent of light roses with floral/fruity notes. Mellow British style malt also very apparent in the taste. Mouthfeel is medium carb (on the low end) and medium weight (again on the low end).

Nice light and floral beer that still has a good amount of malt going on. Extreme drinkability coupled with a malt forward taste, the British touch? My first English pale ale, so I cannot compare that well to style but based on my other British tastings I can definitely pick out the British malt. Reminds me a bit of a maltier and less hoppy A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale.

Well the style isnt listed. Its served from a beer engine, very creamy and smooth. Big amazing looking head.

Pours very dark straw, almost amber. Thick white head. Looks beautiful.

Smell is malt forward. The smell isnt rediculous, but thats what ive come to expect from an English PA.

Taste is what youd expect. No real hops or bitterness to speak of (in comparison to American IPAs). Soapy malt presence makes it drinkable. Maybe I really like English IPAs.

Cant exactly pin it down, but I really like this beer!
