LongShot Old Ben Ale

12 oz single from the Longshot pack.
A nice looking pour that gives a simple, brown, clear beer with some pretty good carbonation considering the ABV. Head and lace are both adequate and better than I anticipated.
This beer is nowhere near as intense as I was expecting, which may be due to the age of the beer. It has probably calmed down a bit since it was first bottled.
Nose and tastes are pretty straightforward. Light alcohol amongst the sweet sugars (brown) and some simple raisin like notes. The beer is a bit drier and a bit less aggressive than I was expecting though. Not overly sweet, and quite muted in several areas.
Very easy drinking, and surprisingly mellow.
