What is it about English ales that they all taste so...English? I agree with everyone else on this one. Prominent malt presence, hops provide good balance and nice hoppy aftertaste. While I can't put my finger on why exactly, I just love this stuff.

A fairly typical English IPA. More sweet malt presence with a restrained hop profile. Only a mild hop aroma noted. Overall has a clean and smooth palate with a bready malt flavor. A good ale, but not as assertive as you may think an IPA would be.

Brown, slightly cloudy appearance. A little too hoppy for me................
