Draft... Pours orange with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is fairly nondescript, but since I’m in the description business, I’ll go with “grainy.” Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is too sweet, even for English-style pale ale. Biscuit and honey malts really stand out. Finishes sweet with a light tinge of bitterness - aka bitter-sweetness. Under attenuated?
