3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Unfiltered orange-amber color. Big, fluffy off-white head. Slightly odd seawater aroma. Rather straightforward English Bitter. Mild, toasty malt backbone, touches of butterscotch. The hops are sort of one-dimensional, just giving some soapy balance. Sessionable, nowhere near a World Class offering.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sort of a blond ale w/ some English characteristics. It is cloudy orange yellow in color w/ a head of mixed bubbles. Nose is very light and mild, slightly grainy w/ some faint herbal hops around the edges. Lightly sweet and malty w/ low carbonation giving the impression of it being a bit more weighty than it really is. This is very nice for such a light beer and I think mine was a bit the worse for wear from sitting on liquor store shelves. I would probably have to take a trip to England to taste this in its prime but I’d definitely like to.
