3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy golden color; small creamy head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, mellow, with some late oranges and bubblegum. The malt/toffee flavor is reasonably good, the hopping is quite satisfactory too, although a bit rough (more bitter than aromatic); there are some decent fruity components from the hop. Strong and long final, a bit cheesy. Good beer, not exciting though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has plenty of hops on the nose but nothing else. Has an okay light brown body with minimal head. Flavour is very hoppy with just a hint of citrus. Bready finish. Like all Big Ridge stuff, it’s reasonably well crafted but hardly a standout.
