Very middle of the road. It’s easy drinking, though. Aroma is not particularly aromatic with floral, citrus hops, but it does have some of your typical citrus character. Taste is similar. It’s not over the top and more subtle than the aggressive ipas of today. Finish is pleasantly bitter with a lingering malt sweetness. Overall, a very steady, easy as she goes type of beer.

Pours amber with medium head, that is quite resilient. Aroma is slightly yeasty-sour, not quite what i’d expect, some hoppy notes kick in, some grapefruit alsoijust when you take that last breath. Taste is slightly sour, with medium carbonation, that works up your taste buds and leaves an excellent dry finish, which you would not expect from the aroma. A very nicely balanced beer, with a little dry surprise at the end =)

Growler fill from Kreston, Middletown Memorial Day 2015. Orange pour with good head and lacing. Sticky sweet aroma or caramel malt and wet fruit. Lots of English biscuity flavorrs and caramel. A bit too sweet. A decent amount of floral/pine hops to balance. I probably won’t buy this again, but I hadng had an Anchor beer in years and I wanted to try this. It wasn’t terrific, but my 32 oz growler pour made for a satisfying afternoon.

Robe ambrée, mousse peu persistante. Nez assez fruitée, caramelisé et malté. Bouche assez nette, peu de bulle, une amertume marquée et une finale un peu trop abrupte à mon goût.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, caramel malt and oranges. Body is full and crisp. Citrusy, herbal hops, caramel malt, brown sugar and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry, herbal, grapefruity. Too much residual sugar in the taste for me.
