Pours a dark golden colour with a thin white head. A lot of fine bubbles in the glass.
First Sip: Slightly sweet biscuity malt and a nice amount of citrusy hops bitterness up front - not the WAH HOPS! I was expecting. Mouth feel is smooth with a little foamy carbonation, and slightly astringent. Nice beer burp. Goes very will with cheese scones.
This is a rather nice American Pale. I was expecting something either insipid (it's 2.8%) or very over-hopped - the way Torpedo and Urquell is too hoppy. But it's not; it's very drinkable. I could easily go a session with this, especially on a hot day.
And it does wash down cheesey scones very nicely.
