650ml bottle (@4% ABV) - not a lot of this style kicking about around here, so good on this brewery for taking a stab at it.

This beer pours a mostly clear, medium copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves some random chunky and sudsy lace around the glass as things slowly subside.

It smells of bready and biscuity pale malt, a bit of apple and pear fruitiness, indistinct earthy spice, further wan citrusy notes, and some tame leafy, weedy, and herbal noble hop bitters. The taste is grainy and doughy pale malt, a bit of muted caramel sweetness, very plain pome and citrusy fruity esters, and more meek earthy, musty, and floral verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its palate-coddling frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and more or less smooth, nothing really having the cause or will to interfere here. It finishes trending dry, the gentlemanly malt, understated hops, and fading fruitiness the order of the lingering day.

Overall, this offering totally evokes memories of drinking in parts of Scotland and England many moons ago - 'd'ye want a lager or a bitter'? Opting for the latter, what one received was a slightly bitter, weakly hopped, and generally malty low-ABV brew. So, yeah, this.
