2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite similar to their other pale ale - sadly, it also carries some similar flaws - a bit of a burnt/charred peanut skin character pops up in an otherwise fairly straightforward and easy drinking pale - earthy hop flavor, but not much bitterness - light caramel sweetness - nothing particularly stand out, which makes the one glaring flaw hard to ignore - meh.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear rusty golden, almost bronze, with a lovely toffee backbone on the nose with nice subtleties of caramel, and semi-bitter grassy grapefruit. Flavor is nicely balanced with lots of toffee malt and slightly subtle grassy hop notes, a touch of lightly bitter grapefruit, and a clean toffee malt finish.
