This stuff is amazing! Excellent example of the style. As noted in other reviews, there’s a lingering lace and plenty of foam ‘round the glass. It’s pretty to behold and tastes exactly as an English bitter should. Great job!

Slightly hazy with 3/4 inch head that dissipated quickly...powerful aroma if citrusy hops...excellent balance of sweetness with a mild bitter finish...mild citrus flavor with a good malt backbone...medium thick mouthfeel and the flavor really hangs on as it warms

Golden yellow in color with a light haze at first that clarified as this warmed. Poured with a moderate, soapy, bright white foam that led wet sticky lacings on the glass despite the medium low retention. Bready malt aromas with hints of toasted crust and herbal hops. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and light creaminess. Herbal and minty hop flavors with a bready malt base. Medium light bitterness from start to finish. Finished dryly with light minty hop and bready malt notes. Very tasty with great body and feel for a sub 5% abv ale. Most certainly an underrated style considering the number of disappointing session IPAs out there.

The chill hazed but clear golden amber-colored beer pours out into a Duvel glass with a 1 1/4” full fluffy white head that recedes slowly but visibly while leaving lots of foam and scattered lacing around the sides of the glass. Eventually there’s a cap but as the lacing thins a bit the cap persists for quite a while. Sipping creates a few small patches and legs of lacing. Eventual the cap of foam becomes a small ring around the glass and a large thin irregular island of foam.

The aromas are filled with toasted malt against a background of citric zest that seems to be mostly either orange or tangerine.

The flavors include some caramel and the zesty citrus flavors expected from the nose. The balance between sweetness and the citric bitterness changes as the beer warms. Initially the gentle bitterness is more up front and more noticeable than the malt backbone and its sweetness, but, as the beer warms, the fruity bitterness softens a bit and then recedes a bit allowing the malt background to show a bit more.

The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium-bodied and fairly smooth from the gentle, persistent finely bubbled carbonation. The finish begins as most everything begins to slowly fade away leaving the long ending to the slowly fading of citric bitterness that ends up way in the back of the throat where it persists and persists.

Overall a nicely brewed bitter which is both enjoyable and drinkable. It would be easy to repeat and at 4.8% the ABV is a bit higher than I’d prefer in a proper “session beer,” but nonetheless it could serve nicely for an evening of slow sipping of a few pints when good friends are gathered for a comfortable evening chat. Is it as well done as the best of those in the UK? Not sure about that but it is tastier than some I've had. It touches many of the right bases for me and it brings back some nice memories.
