A- This beer pours a snow white head with a slightly hazy dark orange with an occasional bubble popping up.
S- The gentle malt touch has some nice honey malt aroma with a flinty stone note in the finish.
T- The nice fresh malt has a touch of sweetness with a cracker note with a note of fruity ester that grow as the beer opens. The finish takes on a green bitter note that takes on a dandelion green note to a dry finish.
M- This beer has a full mouthfeel with a creamy texture and no alcohol heat.
O- This is a very sessionable beer with a nice smooth malty flavor and a good hop snap.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Goose Island Clybourn in Chicago, IL for $6. Tapped from the Goose Tap Handle w/ a white head & black beak & Goose Feathers labeled on it into a 16oz Pint Glass. Enjoyed this brew before the tour.
Aroma- Very light aroma... Malt and sweetness are involved but nothing else. Very clean and to the point. Should be a bit more.
Appearance- Received with a 1 finger head that dies immediately. Has a golden body that is very clear. Leaves no lacing or suds at all! At least the color was on for this one!
Flavor- Has a strong malty start and then finishes with a sour note. Very strange! Has a very light bitterness and the hops are only light-medium in rank. Tough to pick up anything in this!
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Light Carbonation, Smooth, and not much else. The body was good for the style but no other attributes make up this one.
Overall Impression- An easy brew to start out with but wouldn't go back to it... More of a Golden Ale or Lager more than an English Bitter. I went for this one because of never hearing of it and knowing it was a limited one from BA. Will say, be ready to order another one because this one went down quickly!

A - A golden colored beer with a little bit of orange tint to it. Small white head that faded away to nothing. Very translucent.
S - Some pale malts, lightly toasted grains. A bit of sweet caramel and light honey with some mild bittering hops on the end.
T - Tastes a lot like a sweet pilsner to me, while avoiding being hot like some of them get. Lightly toasted sweet malts with a touch of honey and some mild bittering hops on the end.
M - Crisp, slightly syrupy, medium bodied.
O - Not bad, although not what I would expect from an English Style Bitter. Seemed more like a Pilsner to me. I liked it less and less as I drank it and it became kind of sour.
