Pretty sweet and malty. Not really my thing. Drinks kind of heavy and sugary.

i like it. the sour mash and lower hop flavor the beer is nicely malty unpretensious and quenching. it is flavorful and leaves you wanting more. although it seems something is missing i think its just my jaded tastebuds learning to appreciate again. old ale character with easy booze that you cant even tell. big old flavorful session.

OK for style, meaning this is properly boring but easy to drink. Dark amber pour with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Some mash malt. Some light citrus peel, but not super well integrated. Tap at Rosslyn brewpub.

Cask @ Albion. Murky dark amber with medium sized beige foamy head, doughy aroma, sweetish taste, low carbonation, thin body, long bitter finish. Typical bitter.

An interesting pale ale. Has flavor of banana okay but not a pale ale but a pretty good beer.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 2/2/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good robustness and balance of bready malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very solid English pale ale. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt, earthy hops, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
