3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper pour with a 3 finger, frothy, chunky beige head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, tree and berry fruits, cereal, toasted bread, floral, citrus and tea-like planty hops. Flavor is all toast and fruit up front, then nice apple and sweet stone fruit notes, caramel, citrus and a little pine. There are some decidedly English yeast notes in here, despite the APA listing. Light body, entry is somewhere between creamy and crisp with a medium, blanketing carbonation and dry, nicely crisp finish. Really good stuff overall. As it warms it get a little messy.

Drank beer about 3 weeks before the best before date. I got a sweet, crystal almost sour note. No hops. Thankfully not an oxidized crystal malt flavor but sweet with no hops. Either old or just not very good.
