Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a dark copper almost amber hue a 3-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Biscuity aroma with a malt sweetness. Some caramel scents followed by hops.

T: Malts and biscuits flavors up front followed by a caramel and hop backbone. Silky smooth finish.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent English Pale Ale. Well balanced and went down easy.

A - Exits the can a golden and bronze, a small off white head floating atop.

S - Quite a fruity punch to it from the hops; orange, peach and strawberry.

T - Again the immensely fruity elements that came through on the nose, strawberry, peach, citrus, pale sweet malts, maybe a hint caramel and peanuts. Has substantial fruity hop bittering qualities.

MF - A tad on the watery side (at least I find it so in the canned incarnation), medium bodied, but overall isn't too unappealing.

O - An enjoyable fruity pale ale, one of my regular brews because of its wide availability. This was my first real beer when I started out a year and a half ago, one I liked from the get-go, and it retains a special place with me!

Ah, I have fond memories of this one. One of the first cask ales I ever drank while I was in London. Let's see how it holds up in the bottle.

Pours clear amber with a thick off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Smells of caramel, toffee, sweet fruits, and malty goodness. Taste is heavy on the malts, but not overly so. caramel, honey, biscuits. So drinkable. Feels so smooth in the mouth.

I don't entirely remember what the cask version tasted like, but I know for sure that this bottled one is great. Should be my go to English pale ale.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours clear copper with a tall, off-white head. The head dissipates very slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. A few streaming bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is of sweet, bready malts and citrus from the hops. The taste follows the nose. The beer tastes bready with some mild background sweetness. The hops provide a nice citrus balance as well as faint back end bitterness. This beer also tastes clean. The body is light with some carbonation. The finish is smooth and slightly dry. The drinkability is very high. This is an excellent and very sessionable pale ale.

A: Pours a clear bronze color with a large thick head that slowly fades to nice lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, some caramel sweetness with a bit of citrus. Seems to be a trace of honey and nut in the background.

T: Nice malty taste of caramel sweetness with a sort of mild honey and nut mixture. Good bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Medium body, smooth, almost creamy and very well balanced.

O: Very easy to drink. Good example of the style, not to mention very session beer.
