3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice, medium-bodied amber ale with plenty of flavor. Hoppier than most pale ales that you would actually get in the UK. A little spicy, nice malt backbone, and a healthy dose of English hops. A solid beer for the style, and a bit underrated on this site, IMO.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Soft fruity caramel aroma. Chestnut brown color, not much head. Slightly bitter, nutty, and a touch of dark fruit. Seems like a classic English pale, only crisper like a ESB. Nice sessionable body that is substantial without being filling.

12oz beer. Pours a medium clear amber with a beige head. Very true to the style of an english ale. Slightly sweet malt flavors with the english hop bitterness on the back end. Nothing spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours copper, a little hazy with chestnut hue. A fabulous head of soft creamy foam that fell off oh so slowly like a tease. It really does have a come hither look. Sticky lace and thick cap. Smells great with fat malt and light citrus. Lemon and floral are light as a feather on a bread & biscuit caramel malt spine. Malt opens up deep and sweet. Taste is gentle ,clean crystal malt with a good honey and butter sweetness, slightly nutty, alongside hops that are as gentle as a spring breeze with some earth and floral and not quite too bitter. Just enough bitter to lean in on the back palate. It was a touch watery and thin. Drank smooth and bittersweet and had a silky mouthfeel with just a bit of carbonation to tickle the throat. Really good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent amber with a thin but persistent beige head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation.
Aroma: grassy pale malt, brown or medium-dark crystal malts, a touch of roast, and fallen leaves.
Taste: toasted and caramel malts, a hint of roast, subtle woodsy hop bitterness.
Elements are all there, but lacking life and unity.

Draft at the Hartford airport. Pretty standard-looking American ale -- dark amber and clean. Crisp and cleanly delivered, mellow malt and caramel. Very, very easy to drink. (#4920, 1/17/2013)

An english pale ale with a very floral taste. Other than that, nothing too remarkable.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is mildly fruity, light caramel with light florals. The flavor is light fruits, grainy, mild floral notes, not very much.
