La Mi Dòna

$1.99 for the chance to try this at tower on Piedmont after this beer originally retailed around $5.99. An old(er) bottle, but with no discernible date on the label I feel totally justified in reviewing it.
Pour has a mid brown color that looks decent and promises a touch of richness. Head and retention are not great.
Nose and tastes are distinctly malty (as an English Pale often is), but it lacks much (if any) of the distinct, biscuit malts that the real thing would have. In that regard it’s not at all authentic for the style, even if the beer does still manage to deliver a decent, malt-based experience.
Some caramel lightness which I like, and perhaps even a few notes of toffee.
Decent enough, probably much better fresh, and perhaps a beer that I would give another chance to.
