Good solid easily drinkable beer. Not extreme in any way but well balanced all around. Just slightly fruity, crisp and refreshing.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear, straw gold with a small white head that lingers throughout. Very nice lacing as well. Mango, passion fruit and peach on the nose with some light melon notes as well. Medium body with very soft carbonation. Toffee-like malts are there with good fruit forward hops, but not dominant. Very well-balanced and interesting take on a British pale. Lightly bitter finish with some piney, resinous notes.

This was quite a nice beer, but I had just finished a Parrotdog Bitterbitch, so this really was the younger sibling, who tries hard but will never beat the original. Think Owen and Ben Franks, or Sam and assorted other Whitelock brothers.

While I would generally say this is a rather standard, non-description English pale ale I would also add that it is quite well done and would not let you down upon having a glass. Lightly malty with crisp hops. Pleasant.
