Pours copper-gold with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet syrupy malts (maybe a little caramel). Taste is a nice blend of malted grains and bitterness throughout the palate. All of this is balanced with the sweetness. An easy beer to drink and enjoy.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
It does not get much better than this! Wonderful estery, hoppy aroma. Great clear reddish color, nice foam retention. The taste is a wonderful balance between malt sweetness and hop presence, both bitterness and hop oil. Reminds me a bit of Belgian Orval. My only criticism is that at 5.9% alcohol, you cannot throw these down like regular beers. Another great offering from a traditional British brewery. Take that you American micros! Try to copy this!
