S - Haze,honey mostly. With some malt.
T/M - Very drinkable. Low carbonation,sweet high bitter aftertaste.

I really enjoy drinking this fine brew. I've also had it on tap while I was visiting London a few times. This one is sort of in a class all by itself... it has just about the right balance of everything.

Appearance - A slightly hazy amber color with light carbonation, poured with a nice 6 mm head that diminished ever so slowly... although I may have consumed it too fast to truly tell. Left a considerable amount of lacing around the glass. The overall appearance is very inviting.

Smell - Sweet malty aroma with a hint of hops. Can almost imagine I sense some barreled oak
with a mix of fruits and flowers as well. No citrus is evident.

Taste - Difficult to tell but I do sense a hint of vanilla and some berries on the aftertaste. Whatever it is... it is quite good!

Mouthfeel - Just about perfect. Extremely smooth beer that went down begging for more. Would definitely go very well with an order of fish-n-chips or a sheppard's pie!

Overall - Please don't pass this one up if you have the opportunity. It is very well crafted and has earned it's right to stand amongst the very finest ales in the world!

330 ml bottle into pint glass, best before 12/22/2013. Moderate gusher upon opening. Pours slightly cloudy deep golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toffee, pear, apple, grape, biscuit, toast, floral, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with very well balanced malt, hop, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, pear, apple, grape, biscuit, floral, grass, herbal, light pine, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, pear, apple, grape, biscuit, toast, floral, grass, herbal, light pine, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a god bit. Very well balanced and moderately robust malt, yeast, and hop flavors; with a moderately crisp malt/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a damn nice English pale ale! All around good balance and robustness of flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
