English Ale. Easy to drink if you're accustomed to the heavier stuff. Athe 5.5 ABV, it's an easy beer to drink everyday.

Even with an aggressive pour, still a very light head.

Nothing flashy or fantastic about this beer. It's like a dependable domestic partner. A decent pale ale that does the trick. Will pick it up again. Looking forward to visiting the brewery.
