12 oz bottle, drank up out tha bottl'

smell is skunky, malt with earthy hops. taste is much better, a full feeling, medium bodied, semi-hoppy lager. white bread malts, some toast and roast going on, i'll say it again: earth hops. English.

"With a bank shot like Alex English I get distinguished"

Pours amber/honey color with thick foamy head with excellent lacing. Floral/fruity aroma - more of an apple aroma. Malty taste up front, followed by very mild hoppy taste with an apple maltiness on the end. Aftertaste is more fruity. Good beer for the style. Very representative.
