3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BCBB, Durham. Very nice deep orange pour, quite clean looking and with a sizable foamy head. Fuggle-icious nose, with some fruit and bright malts. Body a bit watery but the flavor I found quite pleasant, with its mix of vibrant fruits and dry hops on the back end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery. Medium amber with a moderate white head. Nice balance between hoppy/bitter and malt/sweeter flavors. A little on the tart side, again lending to the English-style beers I have become accustomed to trying in the states and especially from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewery. Pours soft clean orange amber with one finger of sandstone tan head. Nose is super biscuity and toasty with a nice citric and herbal hop character and mild malt sweetness. Bready and biscuity flavor, big on the toasted grain and biscuity character. Hop character is initially very herbal and earthy and then gives way to some very nice and delicate citric and floral notes. Nice and dry finish with an upfront bitterness and light body.
