3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Fynnís of Temple Bar. Pours a hazy orange/gold. Pretty carbonated. Bubbly cream head. Aroma is mildly hoppy citrus (no pine) and bready, with orange, honey and a little cinnamon. Medium body. Not overly flavourful. Mild caramel malt up front, with a medium finish of lemon, grass and a bit of mineral. Little hint of coke or root beer. Warms well. Nice little standby.

Decent and very drinkable beer. Nice balance of prominent malt character with a good, american-style hop profile. Not hoppy enough for an IPA or APA in my mind but nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: Pours a roily copper colored ale in the tumbler, smallish cap lasts and laces. Decent aroma; pungent cereals mingle with fruity esters and spicey-grassy hopping, some musty earthiness. Flavor is well defined, deep bready malting balanced off with spicy-piney hops, fruity...mild character, soft mouth feel,...finishes long wet and bitter with an extended wet metal taste. Nicely done pale ale in the old Burton style.
