Look - Pours a crystal clear honey orange color, a thin ring of off white head, no lacing.
Aroma - Grainy, sourdough, apple, yeast.
Taste - Red apple, apricot, fresh biscuit, sweet grain, spicy and floral hop halfway through. Good amount of bitterness towards the end. A dry and yeasty aftertaste.
Feel - Not quite medium bodied, well carbonated, dry, smooth.

Overall - Everything an English pale ale should have, very balanced and smooth drinking. Definitely recommended if you love the style.
