Clear amber, with a medium frothy head, some lacing. Aroma of ale malts, caramel and light citrus. Taste is malts, caramel, butter, yeasty funk, some citrus and light notes of tropical fruits, all quite mild. Medium bitterness, light body, thin feel, lively carbonation at first, slightly bitter finish. Boring. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle to English pint glass, the appearance was a semi-bronzed copper color with a slight transparency more so along the sides of the beer. Fingers worth of foamy white head slid off at an even pace. Not much lace.
The aroma had some biscuity dry malts, somewhat like crackers with some dried hops (Fuggles, I think). Little bit of earthiness, grassiness and dried citrusy pulp.
The flavor leaned towards the malts with a trying sweetness. I hate to use the word bland but I almost want to say that here. Not much aftertaste and a slightly sticky malty sort of finish.
The palate was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. To be honest, its pretty smooth along my tongue.
Overall, some English pale ales have that diacetyl that can be overbearing, at least with this one though I wanted to say bland in this, it didnt have any diacetyl I will give this beer that. Hoponmate (309) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2017
A refreshing slightly bitter malt forward beer. Refreshing clean but dissapointing no fruit pale ale. Ngejo (979) - Jakarta, INDONESIA - AUG 15, 2016

Punainen pöllö puskee kitkerää kielelle, mukava ja hiljainen rakastaja. Saarivaltiot osaa. Beerheart65 (1503) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2016
Blind tasted. Deep amber with bit ruby, clear, beige head and bit lacing. Swwet and malty, dark bread, bit toffee. Malty, dry, alcohol evident, low carbonation, dries bit to finish, bit wood, medium body, soft feel.Minimal but balance ok, works for me. mrjez (612) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
Bottle nearing its drink-by date.
L: pours a hazy copper, small head that doesn’t last long.
S: very malt-forward aroma, toffee, caramel. Very faint citrus and pine notes, perhaps dulled by time.
T: quite sweet malt base that pushes to the fore, follows the nose, ends with a light citrusy bitter hop flavour.
F: nicely carbonated, good full body for the style, the sweetness is balanced out nicely by the bitterness.
O: solid. I really like a British ale and this is such easy drinking.
