Pours a slightly cloudy amber. Medium sized bubbly head that fades to a fine lacing on the surface. Large bubbles visible in the glass.
First Sip: A nice mix of caramel, malt, and hops bitterness. None of them dominate. The bitterness lingers as a mild after-taste. Mild carbonation tingle on the tongue. Mouth-feel is a little thin but not watery.
This is a nice English ale. It is not dominated by any one flavour. To my taste it could have has a little more malt and a little less hops, but it is highly drinkable as it is. This is an excellent brew for a hot spring Sunday afternoon. Like all *good* English beers, it gets better as the glass warms. And the beer burp is nice.
