This classic English pale ale pours a clear, light mahogany hue with a small, coffee-colored head and a nice rim of lacing. A rich toasted malt core leads the way, with notes of caramel, raw sweet dough and baked apple adding complexity throughout. The medium-weight mouth is full and satisfying but remarkably clean thanks to assertive carbonation and a floral hop finish with an appropriate dryness.
