Very smooth and well balanced but has a bland, lacking after taste. It feels good in my mouth but could stand to be a bit crisper.

Juha (49) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Aroma is slightly piney, malty, mouthfeel is very rounded and soft. Taste is crisp, refreshing, with some grapefruit and resin but not that much. A solid performer still after all these years.

alang51 (43) - Essendon West, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2015
The classic pale ale that started it for me. Pours a clear, bright caramel. Love the good pine taste to it, and some citrus flavor, even a slight hop spice.

sudomorph (815) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled 25/03/15. Pours a clear, bright caramel with a one finger head that thimst to a film and leaves mild lacing. Aroma has smooth notes of citrus, pine, bread, and slight hop spice. Taste is balanced. Bread, caramel, mild pine, citrus, resin, and slight hop spice. Medium body and carbonation clean and very easy drinking in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall a really nice, easy drinking. Beer. Bready caramel mild pine, citrus, and hop spice.
