Poured a translucent ruby brown color with an off-white one finger head that vanished quickly. Little to no lacing. Aroma is very light malt and a bit of bread. Taste is the same with a little hop bitterness on the end followed by a tinny aftertaste. This is surprising as it was bottle poured. Thin-moderate body without being watery.

Dark color,low carbonation but still had a nice full satisfying feel. Sweet malt with a background of hops which was appealing as I am not a fan of hop bombs. The sweetened malt dominated but didn't mask the other components so it seemed well balanced and made for an easy drinking quality

April 3rd, 2015. This was poured into a pint glass on tap at Batdorf, Annville PA. The appearance was a nice looking dark red to ruddy brown color with a slim creamy colored head that dissipated within seconds leaving a sligh running lacing softly glazing the sides of the glass. The smell had the mild English somewhat "soapy" malts running in and out under my nose. The taste was mildly sweet through the malts leaving a constrained palatable aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. It’s definitely mildly carbonated like a good English mild ale should have. Overall, I say this was a pretty good English Mild ale, definitely a good food beer.

Was pleasantly surprised by what came out of the bottle. Deep beer in color, caramel.amd toffee, nice English floral hops, lower end of carbonation. Very drinkable.

Looks- nice red coppery color, small 1/4 inch off white head, little retention, some lacing.
Smell- malty sweet floral smell, but light, not overpowering.
Taste- Clean finish, good balance. Slightly spicy floral notes.
Feel- a little thin, high carbonation, but that's being picky.

Overall I love this brew. I'm not an IPA guy, I like mild ales. Tastes like beer, but not like you're chewing hops. I will certainly get this again, as it's easy to drink and reasonably priced.
