3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one pleasantly surprised me. Poured from a bottle. Honey orange color with little head and minimal lacing. Aroma is orange citrus and floral. Taste is citrusy with light clove. English malt flavor is subdued accompanied by mild hop bitterness. Overall, well balanced. Mouthfeel is moderate. Fairly smooth drinking - could easily be a session beer.
