12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/8/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a good English pale ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Disagree with others who felt that this is a flavorful beer. For me, initial flavor is malty/biscuit with limited other flavors, although did note some clove finish. Not as much bitterness as I would have liked. Overall ho hum, would not buy again, but was not so bad that I couldn't finish it.

Purchased as part of a mixer pack. A good example of this style. I was expecting a darker brew though

Pours a very clear light mahogany color with a big fat head that had average
retention but some pretty decent clinging lace.
SMELL: Very sweet malts, toffee and buttery caramel and a little herbal peppery spice.
TASTE: Malty, with some caramel, nutty. Still sweet, yet dry at the finish.
Clean, creamy with a moderate body.
Looking at other scores, surprised at how low they are. IMO this is a beer that easily is better than just OK. To each their own.

This was a surprise I found in a sampler pack, pour showed a dark golden color with a small white head...head faded but some nice lace hung around. Smell was rich and full of malty hints, taste followed and some Carmel notes came out as it warmed. A nice medium mouthfeel shows a solid English-Style Ale for the brand...I'd pick up a 6 of this for sure.

Pours slightly cloudy, caramel color. Small head dissipates quickly. Flavors of lemon give way to cloves. Heavily carbonated. Bitter aftertaste. A very good, balanced and full-flavored beer.
