The aroma of this beer initially came across as a mélange of fruit: strawberries, raspberries, cherries, and stone fruit with a touch of honey. The flavor features nutty, biscuity malt with hints of caramel and toffee that fade as a sharp wave of minerally bitterness washes through mid-taste. Earthy, herbal hop flavor is subtle and includes a touch of fresh mown hay. The moderate alcohol presence makes this a very sessionable beer. The beer is sensitive to temperature and less chill makes for a more appealing overall balance for this fresh, approachable example of an English ale.
