Bottle. (RBNAG 07) A hazy, golden-orange beer with a small, off-white head. A bit sweet, fruity aroma with some hoppy fruityness, leads to a flavor that is quite fruity and hoppy, but too low on maltyness for an English pale ale. Slightly dusty, medium full mouthfeel. Sure a decent beer, but quite boring. (071103)
