3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, sent from LateStart (thanks Jordan), pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of iced tea, some earthy notes, and a little sweetness. Flavour brings out notes of iced tea, earthy hops, a little sweetness and some light alcohol notes. Quite full-bodied and flavourful for a cream ale, with all notes in harmony. Very enjoyable for a style I’m not usually fond of.
