Review: Ushers Founders English Ale

Ushers Founders English Ale from Thomas Hardy Burtonwood Limited
Rating: B

Appearance: Pours a red/ruddy color, clear, with a nice tan head. Little retention, but nice lacing.

Smell: Rich and malty, with roasty and sweet caramel notes. Herbal and spicy hops beneath.

Taste: Toasty and roasty malts, with some caramel sweetness on the middle, on a backbone of earthy English hops. Not bad. Balanced, but tilted toward malt. Slightly nutty as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, good carbonation. Clean finish, unobjectionable aftertaste.

Drinkability: A nice malt-focused English beer, sessionable at 4.7% abv, but could be quite filling.

Thanks for the info Hunter, sounds like a nice ale. My husband and I love our beer and regularly by online from The Drink Shop as the local selection near us is pretty poor. I will check to see if they sell Ushers because I would like to try this.
