Never Summer Ale

$1.69, 12oz single from Charleston Beer Exchange, Charleston, SC, USA.
Nice looking copper colored body with light lace and some fine, tan head that falls back to give a ring of lace and some fine bubbles. Looks good.
Light, buttered and toasty malts along with some whiffs of sherry get in the nose.
Lovely, full flavored beer that reminds me of some of the best English bitters. There is a touch of winter spice that does lend itself to the WW category, but to be honest it seems to blend perfectly with the toasty malts so it becomes one with the remainder of the beer. Very well integrated. Sherry notes again come through.
Extremely tasty with a nice full mouthfeel and a really satisfying, light hop ending. Very moreish and with about 1.5% less alcohol this would be a “go to” beer for me.
Really impressed, VERY tasty and definitely woth seeking out if you like a simple, well brewed malt based brew.
