A: Has the look of a cider with a decent lace.

S: Biscuity with light floral and fruit scents.

T: Multi flavored up front with a good balance of hops towards middle and end.

M: Medium bodied with low carbonation and a semi dry finish.

O: Nothing really stands out, but it's a very balanced English Pale Ale.

Poured the second half of a bottle into a collins glass.

Clear amber body with jonquil and gold highlights and a thin white surface slick.

Medium hop aroma in the nose, suggesting English noble varieties with hints of pepper and hay. Crackery malt base is to the front as well. I think I lucked out and got a bottle free of light-stricken-skunk.

Soft, faintly sulfur-y palate entry with dry biscuity malt cleansing the palate and offsetting the clean moderate bitterness from hops which adds a zesty quality, though not a lot of additional flavors (this isn't an APA after all). Very dry, earthy, mineral-laden suggests river stones.

Light-bodied, but not thin - low but sufficient carbonation.

A distinguished yet simple English pale ale - not as good as a proper cask offering, I'm pleased to pick this up when I'm in the mood for the style.
