16 ounce can into imperial pint glass, best before 4/2017. Pours clear orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and creamy off white head with incredible, retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense creamy lacing clings down the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, biscuit, honey, light pear/apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, biscuit, honey, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and no lingering hop astringency after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Light carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/grainy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a nice English pale ale. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Looks great, smells ok. Taste is average but below my expectations.

Has good mouth feel and finishes very smooth.

I wouldn't buy this beer again, it was sub par.

When this beer is poured out of it's can into a clear glass it is mesmerizing. The thick, fading head is fantastic! The head is sweet and ultra-creamy. Can't help but tp drink half of the beer in it's foam form. Once settled you can an enjoy a more typical pale ale. It has a slight bitterness, long lasting finish.
