This has a great color, but very little aroma to speak of. It has a good mouthfeel, but it is a bit heavy on the carbonation. The taste is nice enough, but nothing spectacular and a very faintly skunky undertone (probably just this particular bottle). Overall, I found this a decent ale--smooth and enjoyable, but nothing particularly exciting.

Bottle review; First impression is that this is bland. Aroma is faint, but appearance is pretty good, amber color with decent foamy head. Taste is hops and light malt. Finish is dry and abrupt.
Cask: review Lovely, thick creamy pour, head took some time to settle, and still a thick coating of cream remained. Gentle malt aroma and taste, velvety smooth body. Excellent pub quaff

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of strong pale malt, hint of hop, slight caramel malt, and metallic. Fits the style of an English Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong pale malt, hint of hop, slight caramel malt, and metallic. Overall, good appearance, but metallic aroma and body dominates and hurts the beer.

Clear golden colour with a small off white head. Light biscuity aromas with notes of fruity esters, well balanced. Soft smooth carbonation, lightly slick and light-medium bodied. Some sweetness and light fruity flavours. Finishes a bit mineral dry.

Last units in Hipercor. In Duvel glass. Playing Memoria. Nice beer. Very balanced but nothing amazing. Low alcohol makes it a good beer to drink in big quantities. Avg 3.1

25 Feb 2017: From Costco. In Ikea's pint glass. At lunch, with dorada + rice with meat. After futsal match. Very pleasant caramelish, with soft notes from the oak that combine really well and makes provides an original and distinguished touch.
