can. Poured orangey-amber with a big creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with cereal grains. Medium bodied with a creamyish mouthfeel and carbonation, sticky and tart at the end. Flavour is grainy, some caramel malt, hop presence shows as bitter-tart grapefruit note without the citrus sweetness.

Grindstone knows how to entertain with the "Broadhead Business Plan" on the back: build small brewery /brew tasty beer/ sell some/ drink more/grow beards/quit day jobs/hire friends/make rap video... but describing their beer as "not for the laid back drinker" is absolutely wrong, this is very sessionable and not offensive or abrasive. Some caramel malt and a tiny bit of hop citrus is present, but otherwise this is a light/medium bodied brew you could have a couple of, and enjoy, without thinking too hard about. Crystal clear amber body with a thin white head. Nice carbonation level. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to write bad about.

Lives up to it's name. Amber in colour. Very grainy aroma. Bitter finish and a bit metallic. Very strange taste at the end. One was enough.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smell is very grainy, cereal, pours clear amber with an off white head. Fairly light bodied, mildly bitter but in a somewhat "off" way. A bit of a dirty taste. Needs a bit more, tastes pretty standard.
