500ml bottle:
Dark copper with a large, foamy head that's domed shaped, about 2ninchea tall & holds really well with thick lacing left on the sides. Biscuit & floral notes dominate the nose with some pear & faint citrus, there's some caramel malts & a calpol type medicinal sweetness that was quite unusual. The biscuit malts carry over to the taste although the beer seems more weak & slightly watery here, there's pale, earthy touches, pear & some caramel too but it's not all that well balanced. The body was about medium with average carbonation but it didn't go down all that great sadly, the nose was definitely the high point with this one.

A: The beer is rather hazy yellow in color. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that has good retention properties and hardly died down, also leaving a lot of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with notes of pale malts and hints of fruity yeast.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of floral hops that stand out in front of the pale malts and also contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation with a slight touch of dryness in the finish. There is also some crispness.
O: I found this beer to be well hopped for a pale ale with a good amount of hop aromas/flavors/bitterness without being overpowering.

Decent pale ale but flavors were a little muddled and lacked depth. No date printed on can. Pours an amber color with minimal white head and no real lacing. Muddled aromas of malt, toasted nuts, bread, caramel and vanilla. Very faint, if any, hoppy aromas. Taste follows the nose, faded distant flavors and too much malt for me. Thin mouthfeel that was fairly smooth, medium carbonation. Not bad, I’ve just had better English pale ales.
