A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2015. Picked up a while back from a supermarket. The label mentions that this is hopped with Goldings and Cascade.

A: Poured into a cervoise. A deep orange-amber hue with some floating sediment and light carbonation. Yields a decent head of frothy white foam that lasts for a minute or so before collapsing to a patchy surface layer.

S: Aroma of sweet caramel malt with hints of subtle pine, mild weed, grass/hay, barley sugar, ale yeast and stewed hops. Pretty good.

T: Tastes of caramel malt and leafy hops with a restrained bitter finish. Notes of mild pine, weed, grass/hay, faint citrus, barley sugar, a touch of grain, ale yeast and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a subdued bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with prickly carbonation and decent body. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of stewed leaves/cardboard, caramel malt and faint ale yeast.

O: Not bad; won't blow you away though. Lacklustre looks - lack of carbonation and head. The aroma and flavour are alright, with a good caramel backbone and balanced hop bitterness. Body is OK. A satisfying pale ale that goes down easily enough. The only remark I have is that it isn't actually that pale. Worth trying.
