Amber color with a small white head that dissipates very fast. I smell malt, honey and white bread. I taste the same with some sour hops. Nice....

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As "Pennant Ale ’55," best by Aug 2014. Pours deep golden to amber with a fair creamy khaki head that settles quickly and leaves a few touches of lace. Very subtle nose of mild toasted malt and some fruit, perhaps a bit of dust. Somewhat sweet, a bit tart, mildly bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, oily, with a lengthy toasted and tart fruit finish. Certainly drinkable, pleasant if not very exciting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy dark copper with really no head to speak of and absolutely no lacing at all. Pretty poor all-around.
Aroma is caramel and toffee along with a touch of dark fruit. Maybe a little grass from the hops.
The flavor closely follows the smell. Very malt heavy with toffee and a bit of roast. Dark fruits are prominent as well. Medium bitterness with some hay and grass. Sticky finish is a little more than I was expecting.
Overall, I’m not very impressed with this one. There are some ice flavors buried in there but it is a little muddy overall and a bit too sticky.
