Ushers Founders English Ale from Thomas Hardy Burtonwood Limited
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.
