500ml bottle - rated this before I realised the brewer. Noted "like a weaker, thinner version of Hobgoblin". Loses it in the body for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that settles slowly and leaves a healthy spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some caramel, citrus and earthy notes. Taste is caramel malty sweet with some light roasted grain bitterness supplemented with a light citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium in body with generous carbonation leaving the palate pleasantly teased. Slightly more robust than the Organic Original and highly recommended.
