3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dirty copper pour with a 1 finger, soapy beige head. Aroma is apple skins, toffee, light nutty notes and fruity and herbal hops. Flavor is toffee and apple skin up front, some cereal, light metal, a hint of roast, some planty sourness that reminds me a bit of rhubarb and some mineral notes toward the finish. Light, dry body, medium carbonation. Good stuff overall, a little weird with the slight sourness, but good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber ruby color,light head,some lace. Aroma of mineral,slight caramel, and slight roasted caramel. Mostly minerally. Minerally taste with some roasted carmel, smooth light malty with a more roasted carmelly and light roasted malt character.Light general bitter with some citrus/earthy character. Good/ ok... and kinda what I was expecting, like their others more. Nice session English ale though. Finish seems to get more citusy and peppery leaving that on your palate.

Bottled. One word: delicious! Fruity tea herbal like aroma. Malty taste with again some herbal tea tones with a mild bitter longlasting finish, just like tea with no sugar. The low carbonation meets exactly my level. A great beer in its class and price level.

A very good offering from the Coniston people. Masterful hopping, great color, not too much alcohol, some fruit, excellent. Nice label in their very recognizable house style, not a great design per se, but quite original.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured pale amber with a smallish white head. Aroma of floral, slightly spicy hops and some caramel and bready malt. Flavor is of a solid but slightly boring classic english ale. Bready malts, spicy, earthy hops. Some fruity esters, touch of honey. I love that combo, so I dug this beer. But still kinda boring.
