Pours a dark amber, with a medium, creamy head that fades slowly and clings to the glass. Very fine cabonation bubbles in the glass.
First sip: A lot of caramel/toffee and toasted malt up front, with citrus mixing with the hops to leave a mild bitter aftertaste. Mouth feel with quite full, with a lot of tingly carbonation.
London Ale is a yummy bitter. The taste is quite strong but it's highly drinkable. Once again, the beer tastes better as it warms a little.
I can see myself drinking this with a pile of smoked meats and some strong cheeses.
