3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Purchased from Half Time Beverages.
Bottled on Dec 11, 2011
It pours a clear deep gold copper with a 2 finger head of white foam. My imperial pint glass looks so gorgeous right now.
It smells grainy with a fruity backbone and has some light bitter notes.
The taste has some grain like in the smell, more bitterness than the smell, a kind of aspirin bitterness that doesn’t hit my palate all that well. It finishes slightly on the sweetish side where the medium light body gets a bit thin.
This is not a bad Bitter. The abv is nice and low and drinkabilty as far as said abv goes is great. The flavours just don’t mesh as well for me as I hoped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep amber-hued body with a foaming, short-lived, white head. A few spider web streaks of lace on the descent.
Smell: Toasted barley husks in the nose with an ill-defined sweet-scented trace to it, discarded fruit skins, and some earthy, woodsy English hops.
Taste: A taste of wet toast with a little, light caramel sweetness that quickly recedes away. A bit of apple skin, a bit of red grape skin. Earthy, woodsy, faintly herbal hop character with medium-light bitterness. Faint toastiness remaining in the predominately hoppy (though, even that’s still quite restrained)
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Falls a little shy of a medium level of carbonation for an overall soft mouthfeel.
Overall: Enjoyably subtle.

Bottle. This brewery continues to impress with yet another classy bitter,Crisp and sharp with a slightly malty finish. Bitters sometimes bore me-this one didn’t. Definitely worth checking out.
