3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, mail order from the brewery. Earthy, grassy nose, hoppy and malty. Nice citrus edge to go with caramel. Pretty orange amber color with a low, fine head. Earthy, grassy flavor, dry, with light caramel, minerals, a touch of veggies. Dry, hoppy finish. Not exactly revolutionary, but a solid, clean brew.

Pours a very nice English tea brown, with a light, rocky, off-white head. Aroma is nutty and roasty. Nice and smooth, roastiness is most prominent flavor, nicely malty with a fair bit of hops to balance it and a sweet finish. Low carbonation goes well with this brew; fairly solid effort.
