3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle with a best by date of July 2018.
Aroma is slightly sweet with some faint caramel and lightly toasted bread, but otherwise the malt profile is cereal. Light floral hop notes with a bit of a spicy, herbal note.
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a rocky, white head, about an inch tall that exhibits alright retention as it falls into itself. Light lacing and small legs.
Flavor is also slightly sweet with hints of caramel and toasted bread, but mostly cereal and crackers. Moderately strong bitterness with a moderate woodsy, herbal, spicy hop note that is slightly rough. Dry finish.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, an alright beer with a decent malt profile, but the hops are definitely not my preferred type with too much wood and spice notes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy straw with a decent but not lasting head. Hops in the nose and it dominates the taste. A bit floral but mainly bitter. Well crafted but a bit too one sided. Long entertaining dry and bitter finish, some white sugar there.
