Clear coppery golden color with a small compact whitish foam keeping to the top with solid staying power. Lacing is pretty sticky and placed in large amounts of lightly broken sheeting.

Nose to this is herbally toasted and English-like in dryness. Somewhat light to medium in strength but clean with a feathered pale fruity sense and toffee.

Taste is clean and herbal with a nicely set toasted dryness and smooth breadyish malty backing. Lightly dulled with a mellony citrus play underneath with some smurfings of toffee stickyness. Finish is welcome with a light dancing spice of herbal hops. Semi grassy and wood stained.

Feel is about medium with a dryish nature and paled malt fluffyness. Finish has a slight nudge in some off metallic notes in with the hoppy spices. Dryness gets a bit tiresome, could use a little more roundedness. Kinda English IPA/Amber-like.

I liked at first but for some reason the dryness and overall paled sense kept me from enjoying it fully. Not really all that bad of a beer really it just wasn't doing it for me.
