Princetown Jail Ale

Quite surprised to see this one already in the database. Purchased from an independent, gourmet food store on the high street in Okehampton, Devon, England.
Very impressed with the color of the pour, and quite surprised at the depth and richness of the head and lace. More than I was expecting. Color is a distinct, fairly dark copper, and has nice clarity and good depth.
A simple malt based brew, typical of the style but also with (for an English beer of its type) a rather raised hop profile. Of course, the hops are more gentle, subtle and floral than one has become used to in the US, and for that it is a Godsend.
Finish is a little dry, but the malts seem to hold up well in terms of their length.
One of better brews that I drank on my most recent trip home, and one that I would look for (if not exactly actively seek out) again. Tasty.
