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

Poured into a beer mug.

A: Pours a glorious golden copper color with incredible clarity and vibrant carbonation. The head is a three finger vaguely off-white shade with a soapy texture and low retention.

S: The scent is a slightly weird cornucopia of butterscotch, toffee, hazelnut, mint, caramel, and earth. Very malt driven with only a slight touch of hop aroma.

T: Quite nutty, not to brown ale levels, but the initial sips have a nice hazelnut quality to them. Eventually, this will smooth out to a slightly buttery, earthy biscuit flavor (the diacetyl is kept in check to a decent degree) in both the midtaste and finish. A simple brew, but nicely balanced and refreshing. Fine for what it is.

M: Medium bodied with low carbonation and no dryness to speak of. The feel really gives it an amazing refreshment quality, but feels a bit lifeless on the tongue at the same time.

O: Well, James May gives it his seal of approval, but I can't be so generous. An OK session ale, nothing more, nothing less.

Golden-to-copper color, perfect clarity. Head dissipates pretty quickly, leaving a half-finger on top. Grainy, almost flour-like aromas on the pour. Almost reminds me of animal feed, with some toasty overtones. Zero hops in the aroma.

Maltiness is the defining characteristic on entry, and the grainy character holds through throughout the first sip. The flavor has some depth in sweetness from the malt, but meshes very well with the grain in the nose. Bittering hops are evident at entry and then especially at the aftertaste.

Wow, this is a well-crafted beer. Everything is in sync, and the flavors are very well-balanced.

Ap. Medium amber with very little head. Even warmed up there is little head.
Sm. Some pine and mildly grainy beer. Lowered my expectations right there.
Ta. Faintest bit of chocolate, clean fruity essence, faintly candy, sharp *and* mild candy bitterness at finish. Very long finish. Way better than the smell indicated.
Mf. Light and clean.
Dr. Very good for a lighter beer. I like it.
