Copper hue with a creamy white head. Malty toasted nose. Slightly rusty taste with a fairly good balance. Has hints of caramel and vanilla and a medium finish and malty backbone.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad ale. Dark brown color, somewhat cloudly. Light head. Aroma of malt and English hops. Some bitterness on the finish, but really a classic English Ale(except the color which I thought was a little to dark).

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not the most enjoyable aroma, but this beer surprised me after I tasted it. A thick toffee, almost chocolate malt flavor in this pale ale with a bitter but balanced finish. I liked it.
