3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a clear copper with low bubbly white foam. Instant familiar nutty toffee aroma of a British ale, musty at first but opens up pretty well and shows bright toasty malt and oak. Similar taste, caramel malt sweetness, toffee, toasty woody notes. I get vanilla later down the glass. It’s got a decent amount of carbonation, reasonably light. A faithful representation of the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from AEON liquors. Drank straight from the can. Aromas of grass, astringent toffee and herbal notes. As it warms up a big of woodsy oak I suppose. Scratchy carbonation on the palate. More grass and burned toffee. Bitter finish with light fruit. Refreshing and feels light though. Very lager-like in mouthfeel and nose to me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber copper with some lacing. Aroma is loads of cinder toffee but if you keep sniffing it’s oak and vanilla too. A regular bitter with a bit more booze flavours tagged on the end. They’re a better brewery than this portrays

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can.
Aroma of hops and caramel.
Appearance is good lookin clear Amber with lacing.
Tasting a healthy amount of hops, piney and floral, caramel malt, something herbal, yeast, marshmallow, oak. Has a sort of medicinal aftertaste.
Palate is well balanced, nice drinkability.
Overall, quite good, but I’m a bit put off by the aftertaste.

Pint at an applebee´s in Camarillo, CA. Clear amber in the glass, fine small light beige head. Decent malty on the nose. Taste starts malty, light toasted, little bit fruity. Followed by a hopy sequence, with some citrus. Malty aftertaste. Fresh and easy to drink.

From 12oz can to english pint glass. Pour is a nice brown/orange color, thin white head. Nose is roasted malt, light hop, caramel, doughy. Light medium bodied, sweet taste. Finishes super crisp and stays on the palate. Such a balanced beer, unreal.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery in Paso. A dumbed down craft Pale Ale. Certainly malty rather than hoppy lift. Has the style but very commercial. Reminds me of the commercial Burton beers.

Smoking meat, and a buddy dropped this on me on a wonderful summerish day. Smells of sweet vanilla and hops, tastes of slight vanilla wish a finish of sweetness. This is a very refreshing brew. Well worth trying out!
