2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazy gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma of bread, grain, planty grassy and slightly skunky hops. Flavor is toast, doughy bread, biscuit, dishwater, citrus, grass and a little skunk. Light vegetal notes build on the back of my tongue as I drink, cabbage-like, Light fairly neutral body with a moderate carbonation. Tastes a little off, but I’ve had worse.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/8/2014. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a good English pale ale style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not hoppy or malty at all. Has a little bit of a creaminess. Goes down smooth with a sweet caramel flavor. Not a lot of aftertaste either. Not too familiar with English style ales but this is not to bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper with a pretty nice foamy lacy head. A little cloudy. It’s unfiltered, and I love that! Well, there’s not as much sediment as what I would expect, so I would guess slightly filtered.
Aroma is caramel roasty, and maybe leathery. I’ve never really smelled a beer quite like this one. Light cloves maybe. Not that it’s bad, but different often is good.
Taste is caramel and nutty roasted malt. First taste isn’t all that great, but subsequent tastes are better. I like it! But somehow, I was expecting more.
Mouthfeel is very dry. Medium body. A little bitter, but not a lot, and slightly astringent. Not loving it so much on mouthfeel, I may have rated it a little high.
Overall, I’m a little disappointed. It’s still pretty good all around. Good character and flavor, but the mouthfeel is off. Not one I would likely seek out again.

bottle. Poured a dark amber with a thin creamy off white head. An inviting malty aroma. Light-medium body, average carbonation with a tart dryish finish. Sweet flavour, notes of caramel, toasty with just a touch of herbal hops.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Dirty yellow brew with a very nice dense head. Aroma of caramel, a little toffee, fruit and a hint of grass. Taste is light sweet caramel at the start with a mild bitter at the finish. Not so complex but tasty.
