3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-amber, thin head. Aroma is vague, bit crackery. More in the palate - crackery, earthy, foresty hops, a bit like bottled Bass or a 1990s bitter...not up to speed on what English pale is in England these days.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: When I saw this was an English Pale Ale I thought to myself, another skunked beer. Well, until I realized it was made locally! To my amazement, this one was a soft tea and citrus bitterness, with a soft smooth malt background. A touch musty, but very smooth. This is way too easy to drink. With the American hops you might think it would be over the top, but this one has balance. Soft hops, smooth malts, and a touch musty. Bang On might be correct. Well done!
