I recently had this beer at a stop over in London and I thought it was pretty good.

Look: clear copper hue with a thin off-white head.

Aroma: caramel and citrus

Taste: It's malty, bready, caramel, some citrus, very refreshing. I think it is very good.

Feel: Light to medium body with light carbonation

Poured a clear slightly dark amber with a 2 finger head that dissipated quickly. Very little lacing. Nose is floral hops, a bit of earthy hops and caramel. Taste of faint caramel and earthy hops. Medium body with medium-light carbonation and a slight creamy feel.

Light copper. Nearly clear. Thick inch of shiny beige head.

Nose is rye malt and apple. A bit of mineral.

Soft caramel malts, appley fruit, dried apple. Vegetal hoops, wet leaves, flower buds. Dried herb bitterness but mild. Lots of depth to all those flavours.

Smooth and almost creamy. Lighter body and decent amount of micro bubbles give a bit of pep.

Rewarding pint with plenty to chew on but delicate enough to show off the nice organic flavours.

This pours, at least in the bar light, an amberish color. The head was white, and frothy.
The nose is malty. Smells like bread in a way.
Taste is quite malt all around. Some sweetness.
Feel is moderate, and it has a creamy feel.
Overall not a bad beer. Nice execution. Nice malty beer.

Decanted from a 11.2 oz (330 ml) bottle into a Weissbier vase; best before 03 Dec 2017.
A: Pours an inviting, clear amber color with a less than quarter inch white to eggshell white head which dissipates quickly. No Belgian lacing or legs.
S: Floral nose blended with aromas of orange and caramel; pepperiness also present.
T: Bitter up front with caramel and citrus evident throughout; crisp, lemony finish.
M: Light bodied with light carbonation.
O: A very refreshing and high quality example of an English Pale Ale. This is as good as this style gets.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a semi-dark red to orange color with a slight clearness rising in the beer. Streams of carbonation are seen rising into the light white one finger head. There was a decent lacing after the death of the head. The smell had a dry caramel graininess running underneath. The taste starts with this dried caramel graininiess and lends a light sweetness to allow a mild bitterness for balance. On the palate, this one sat fairly light to show a decent sessionability about it. There was a mild dry bitter caramel finish. Overall, this one was a decent bitter I think I could do again. Pass the fish n’ chips....? Sounds good.

Look: Clear golden (touch of brown) hue with crazy amounts of foam that tends to linger. (Maybe because it was poured from a can?)
Smell: Bready, malt, some slight floral notes.
Taste: Straight up ale with light hoppiness that does not overpower the malt characters.
Feel: Feel like I am in a traditional English pub. It brings back memories.
Overall: Excellent brew that could be a mainstay in any beer fridge.

Clear amber. No head to speak of. Has a hard feel to it. Definitely taste whiskey and biscuit. A little on the smoky side. Not bad.
