A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2013.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A bright coppery-amber hue with plentiful carbonation. Forms a decent off-white head of foam that lasts for a minute or two before disappearing. Aroma of caramel malt with hints of grain, faint citrus and a whiff of diacetyl in the background.

Tastes of caramel malt with a mild finish. Notes of grain, stewed hops, the faintest hint of citrus and again a smidge of diacetyl. Quite dry, with little bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and full-bodied. Aftertaste of caramel malt and stewed hops.

Drinkable, but not terribly exciting. The malt is OK, but more aromatic hops would be nice. The diacetyl is also a minor flaw. It's unusually dark and a tad strong for a pale ale; I'd class this as more of a bitter. At any rate, not one of Fullers best brews despite it's ubiquity. I'd recommend trying the cask version.

11.2 oz bottle into a mini pint glass at Monk's Kettle in SF,CA

A - Amber tan, very active and inviting with a moderate head
S- Brown Sugar and honey
T - Balanced grain bill with a slightly citrus hop backing. Very balanced and robust without being overly bitter
M - Smooth, session-able and rather addicting
O - One of my go-to's when I am in the mood for a true English Ale
