Color rojizo intenso,vierte mucha espuma de retención escasa, olor y sabor a maltas bien tostadas, muy buen paso de boca sin apenas amargor y dejando buenas sensaciones, con pos gusto fresco y maltoso.

The color of the body is a beautiful amber hue with very good clarity. Its head is a creamy off white colored foam which is slow fading. A quick swirl of the beer will keep a small cap of foam on top till the last sip. The head also makes some cool slick and spotty lace on the glass. It has a light modest nose with light toasted gain notes equaled by some herbal like hop notes. The flavor takes after the aroma. It has some pale bready and light toasted malt notes. It has mellow sweetness and more of a raw grain character. This is complemented by a balanced herbal and an almost floral like hops which has just a very slight lemon/orange peel note as well. It finishes fairly dry with mellow hops bitterness and the palate is light to medium bodied with balanced carbonation.

Nevéhez hűen vöröses színárnyalattal rendelkező főzet, melynek némiképp visszafogott az illata, íze hasonlóképpen, anélkül azonban, hogy hiányérzetünk lenne. Megtalálható benne ugyanis a főbb összetevők mindegyike: érezhetjük a kellemesen pörkölt malátás alapot, a háttérből némi komló aromájával megtámogatva, de éppen csak annyira, hogy egyikük se legyen túlságosan hangsúlyos, vagy előrenyomuló. Egyszerű, mégis ízletes darab.

De espuma blanquecina pero que se dispersa al instante, esta cerveza tiene un atractivo color rojizo y una aparente transparencia. Las grandes burbujas sin estar demasiado intensas se mantienen en el vaso aportando frescura y acción. Los primeros aromas son claramente al lúpulo, dándole un carácter afrutado. Al primer sorbo acertamos a comprobar el buen cuerpo de la cerveza, el sabor a café o chocolate negro que una malta bien tostada le aporta. No es del todo refrescante, pero su cuerpo le aporta personalidad y nos hace trasladarnos a una taberna inglesa clásica, que es el recorrido final que nos deja esta cerveza junto con un característico e interesante amargor.

WVHouseofBeer (791) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Eh just a step above the macro pale lagers. Light aromas and flavors of caramel, toffee and just a hint of hop crispness. Thin bodied. A forgettable beer but not a bad beer.
