355ml bottle. Paddock Wood's summer 2012 seasonal release. Excalibur imagery, well beer-ified, is depicted on the label.

This beer pours a slightly cloudy, burnished medium copper hue, with a half-finger of loosely foamy dirty white head, which hies away in very little time at all, leaving nothing but a low lakeshore berm of lace around the glass.

It smells of sweet, bready, and biscuity pale malt, some caramel/toffee notes, soft indeterminate field fruit, and earthy, musty, and leafy hops. The taste is toffee wafer candy bars, some further musty caramel, a plain Jane graininess, mild marmalade-esque citrus, and a low-key earthy and leafy hoppiness.

The bubbles are quite restrained - timid, even - the body on the lee side of middleweight, but with an adequate amount of sugary heft to complement a decent smoothness. It finishes clean, and not as off-dry as I had expected, with a nice late-arriving, sassy and bitter leafy hop rejoinder.

Overall, a decently rendered mild pale ale, one that possesses the flavour to punch a weight class higher, that's for certain, and should surely do nicely as a lower ABV summer option, I would think.

A - clear bronze, short head quickly dissipated to a few random thin islands with no real lacing
S - big molasses and burnt sugar aromas, biscuity, light leafy and perfume linger
T - toffee and sugar cookie, mild musty and leafy hops, light fruit syrup, grainy finish
M - light with mild carbonation, some sticky sweetness, finishing with a grainy dryness
O - for a light ale it is big on flavours, a very easy drinking light ale, decent for a summer session but not something I would buy regularly given the vast selection out there

341 ml brown bottle with pry-off cap poured in a pint glass. Purchased at Willow Park in Regina.

Light copper in colour and fairly clear. White head is 1/4 inch on the pour but quickly recedes to a thin ring. No lacing to speak of.

Well balanced aroma of malts and herbal hops.

Nice balance on the palate. Caramel and biscuits balanced by herbal and citrus hops.

Medium bodied and moderately carbonated. A little resiny from the hops.

Above average but not great ale. Nice session ale on a hot summer day.

Appearance- Pours a dull rust colour with no head.

Smell- Toffee, earthy/musty hops, biscuity, plum/cherry

Taste- The toffee and earthy hops come through initially followed by the plum/cherry and biscuity characterstic. Finishes bitter from the earthy hops. Flavours are decent but there is nothing that makes it stand out.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with light carbonation. A little on the watery side.

Overall- For Paddock Wood's summer seasonal, I feel this brew fell flat in many areas including the body which needs some fine tuning. This is good for trying something different, but it doesn't have that "umph" factor.

355ml bottle poured into pint glass 5/7/12

A light copper body with plenty of bubbles but only a thin film for head and it leaves a single ring of lace

S butterscotch and soft caramels with lots of dry cereal and faint fruit, decent but pretty straight forward

T mimics the smell quite well, some earthy notes, but mostly grainy caramels

M not as much carbonation as I would guess from looking at it but still far from flat, light bodied but pretty smooth

O easy enough to drink and you could have a few under the Sun without falling over, not going too blow you away but a decent session beer

Not sure the style for this one as I couldn't find it on Paddock Wood's web site but English style ale's named on the bottle and I felt Pale Mild was the best fit

Spied this as a single @ Trackside's 'build your own sixer' shelf...a 'new-to-me' offering from a good brewer.

Wow...the head behaved much like George Costanza's splenky after he got out of the pool...seriously. Other than than the colour and brightness are fabulous.

Nice toasted malts with hints of diacetyl...some caramel candy in there as well

tasty indeed...lot's of different malty goodness...butter caramel being the most prevalent. Enough bitterness to keep things from being two 1 dimensional.

Other than 1 brief moment of wateryness the feel fits the ABV.

Certainly worth trying...especially if you're able to get it on-tap and fresh
