3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint 9 bottle shared.poured a medium orange with white head. Malty aroma with a mild bitterness in the flavor. This beer is not over powering just well balanced with the flavors there may be a mild citrus thing going on in the middle. Getting some orange peel in there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a crystal clear, classic golden color with a short-lived pure white head. If the head hadn’t attenuated so quickly, I would’ve assigned a five for appearance. The aroma is reminiscent a crisp malt liquor. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and wet with a perfect amount of carbonation for the style. The flavor is akin to both a malt liquor and a bitterer pilsener. A bit of Chardonnay grape or two. This is an enjoyable bitter.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Right after the pour, the nose is skunked, caramel. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is skunky, caramel, tea leaves, vague hoppiness. The finish is a mix of English hops, floral, remnants of skunk. Medium in body, a little thin. Terrible. WTF? Maybe this really needs to be drunk super fresh.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a very small white head. Nose is a little bitter, but not much to it or very strong. Taste is a tad bitter, with a hint of chocolate coming through, which shocked me. Interesting.

Looks well-carbonated for the style. Uncomplicated but nicely bready nose leads to a simple, clean, drinkable bitter. Clear malty backbone nicely balanced by rather spicy hops, fairly strong, which linger, but finish clean. A well-done example of a sessionable bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazelnut color with almost no head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, candy sugar, bubblegum. Taste is light sweet, light sour, light bitter at the end. Light body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation. Not bad.
