Caramel-amber ale with a rich white foam with a malty green hop aroma. A very pleasant ESB - or even perhaps English IPA come to think of it - with dry fruit and apple malt, some chewiness to the citrus and green hops as well as soft water from the chalky water table beneath the town - if the brewer is to be believed. A pronounced but not stark drying finish, not unlike an russet apple, from the hops.
Given my druthers, I would likely still go for a Hen's Tooth if I could find one. But not by that much.
