decent enough appearance and aroma. classicly English Ale. Seems to be unbalanced in that there is too much malt for the rest of the brew.

Clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry with good fine carbonation. Light malts, mild and unsweet dark toffee turning to a smoother sweeter caramel. Floral bitter hops and dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Medium bitter linger. Not bad.
