500ml bottle conditioned: 4.6% ABV. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Poured a murky brown with a deep beige blanket of foam on top. Bitter hop feel to the nose and taste, chilled: became more malty as it warmed a little. Reminded me of some of the Californian Hoppy brews I have tatsed, so this is obviously a good try at that style. Impressed.

Bottle from alesela. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The nose is caramel, wood, caramel, orange peel, tangerine and sherbet. The taste is bitter, pine, varnish, resin, caramel, grapefruit rind and a touch of soap with a rather dry-bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a touch watery, but nice bitterness nonetheless. Decent.

Almost clear amber beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and with fine carbonation. Clean malt. Surprising amount of smoke, goes all right with the marmalade hops. Little dry malt before the finish. Not bad, not what I was expecting but not bad!
