Very hazy deep amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Mild fine carbonation. Mild minerals. A little creamy malt, slightly thin. Mild sweet orange and pine. Finishes neutral. Decent and manages to evoke English tangyness!

Whoah! A bottle from ericandersnavy. Eat your friggin hearts out on this one. Poured into the SA super glass. Comes out ruby tinged amber with a multifinger foamy beige head. Aroma is pretty much nice malt. Incredibly, fruitily hoppy flavor. Burns in the mouth. Any Englishman who tastes this would likely just curl up his toes. This could be my go to beer. Bet it would be, if I lived in Texas. It’s not harsh, just incredibly, smoothly, fruitily hoppy. Oh to live in Blanco. Maybe not though. Might be too far from an international airport. But if I was drivin’ through Blanco, I’d be packing back a whole bunch of this. Drink this, and your tongue will not pass into the corruption of death. Was that over the top? So is this ale!
