On tap at Tap East Stratford. Amber brown with a slight haze lasting near white head. Oxidised aroma. Some ok toffee caramel malt in the mouth not much hop on the finish. Flavour is better than the aroma. It’s got some ok fruit peel flavour a bit like an esb. Oxidised aroma is poor though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy/creamy beige head. Mild citrus hop aroma. Something sweet underneath that could be maple. Or malt. Med body. Flavor is caramel with some earth and a touch of citrus. Not getting a lot, if any, maple. Seems to finish dry. Sort of refreshing, but there are no stand out flavors in strength. Certainly better than many ambers.
