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

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.

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.

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!
