3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Vince. Bottled 3/02/15. Clear amber orange color, a bit darker for a pale ale. Good off-white head, leaving decent thicker lace. Toasty and caramel malt, mild earthy hop, touch of citrus. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter to moderate carbonation; sort of slick texture. Nice biscuity flavor. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, good balance to the taste. Touch of a macro / metallic edge, but a very solid, flavorful english pale ale overall.
