Clear burnished gold appearance. Little to no head but a nice gentle stream of rising bubbles.
Typical aroma of English hops and sweet malt.
Again a taste that reflects the flavour of most English summer beers at the moment. Well balanced.
Nice feel due to the bottle conditioning.
Nothing great but a sound pale ale.

(on cask at Victoria Freehouse - served in a 20 oz proper pint)

A: pale gold liquid, relatively clear.... attractive, compact, creamy foam - fantastic retention, big bands of sudsy lace

S: bold golden raisin esters... sugar cookie dough malt... herbal, grassy hops - the quality of aroma like fresh, not-quite-dry hop cones

T: smooth, sweetish, light-toffee, graham-cracker-y malt with a fairly aggressive herbal-leafy bitterness that keeps the palate buzzing... faint toastiness and perhaps mint in the aftertaste

M: exceptionally smooth with a mild sugar/resin residue... absolutely ideal

O: just damn tasty... crazy moreish for anyone who enjoys their bitters

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith Imperial Pint Glass.

Nice golden color, with a two finger head that dissipated quickly.

Medium bodied, clean and crisp beer. Tasted some caramel and finished with a nice bitterness that lasted for a while.

Over all wasn't bad, but would love to try from a cask.

I poured this nasty looking concoction into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was sorta tea colored and dead looking. The beer poured absolutely no head whatsoever. The beer smelled yeasty, looked yeasty and tasted yeasty. I was not liking this beer at all and struggled to finish it off. Will not buy again.

A: The beer is crystal clear copper in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high frothy light beige colored head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of floral hops in the nose along with hints of fruity yeast.
T: The taste has flavors of floral hops as well as biscuit, caramel and pale malts. A slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a bit chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a great balance between the flavors of malts and hops and is very sessionable. The bottle conditioning definitely improves its taste.
