2.35/5  rDev n/a
look: 2.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

A - Poured a brownish amber colour with very little head that disappears rather quickly

S - Sweet fruity aromas with some lemon and a little musk or candy

T - Very odd in taste. Slightly bitter and a little grainy. Slight sweet hoppiness but nothing fantatic

M - Light to medium bodied and medium carbonation

O - Very ordinary for a pale ale. Would not recommend.

Gifted a bottle by @lacqueredmouse and shared with my Dad.

Pours a brownish amber colour, decent off-white head. Sticks around nicely with decent lace. Pleasant-looking English pale.

Smells lemony, grassy, with a bit of barley sugar to it and some green wheat notes. Little bit sweet at times with a touch of brown sugar on there as well, but pretty decent for the style.

Taste has a toasty flavour overall, a bit of brown sugar creeping in as well. Decent toasted grain with EKG and grassy notes, a touch of lemon myrtle that overall gets a bit earthy late on the palate. Maybe just a whisper of coffee towards the finish. Nicely bitter pale, well-grounded and nicely balanced. Good example of the style.

Full body, bitty at times. Not bad.

Really quite a pleasant English ale. Good cleanser but also lots of likeable character as well. I won't pretend the beer had me leaping for joy but I'd be pretty happy if there were more of this type of well-crafted English style brew and fewer POR-hopped beers around.
