On tap, pours hazy amber with creamy off white head. Aromas of tangerine, caramel, bread, Taste is filled with crystal and sweet caramel malts, some pine and orange also present from the moderately bitter hopping. Medium bodied.

750ml capped ceramic bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles to reveal some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and earthy hops. Taste is a nice caramel malty sweetness coexisting with a wonderful earthy and citrusy hop bitterness. A very nicely done English style bitter that begs to be tasted.
