3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought bottle at brewery and consumed shortly thereafter. Copper color with decent beige head. Fruity aroma with some caramel in flavor. Tastes to be "west coast" hopped, which makes an interesting combination on a traditionally English style. Well carbonated. Better than average, but not stellar like most of the others from this brewer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep amber red with a small white head. Malty aroma of caramel and biscuits. Flavor has notes of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, apple and ends with a touch of dark fruits/chocolate. Not too sweet.Has a pleasant, subdued hop bitterness which hits the back of the tongue. Medium body with a smooth texture and subtle carbonation. No lacing or head retention though. Overall, pretty good.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours medium brown/amber highlights. No head. Musty caramel malt aroma with some floral hop background. Flavor is all sweet malt with a strange fruit character, the yeast in the deScription I’d assume. Average but drinkable.

bottle from foolish_mortal. looks like a bitter, with a light woody color and very clear. surprisingly fruity, with a lot of strawberry flavors as well. a little bit too fruity and acidic to be a perfect session beer, but definitely easy-to-drink. a good session beer anyway.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looks a lot like iced tea. Small head lace. Light fruit aroma with some spicy hoppiness. Somewhat cirusy with a good malt backbone. Again it reminds me of iced tea with a lot of lemon.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Foolish_Mortal thru a trade. Lots of caramel in the aroma with a nice flowery hop balance. Pours a hazy reddish-orange with a small white head. Flavor is mostly caramel with a nice flowery hop balance, just like the aroma. A light citrus character in the background in the finish. Caramel malt lingers into the aftertaste more so than the hop finish.

Nice copper color with a creamy off white head. The aroma is a mix of malt and hop. Some sweet and slightly roasty malts and mild piney hop aromas.
