3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A clear, fizzy light amber ale with a short head. Mild aroma of oak, soft caramel malt and light herbal hops. Not an exciting beer, but it’s appropriate for the style. Mild bitterness with a hint of malty sweetness. I’d like it better with 10 more IBU and a slightly more assertive malt note.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16th July 2014 on-tap at the Hanger bar inside the Tustin (Orange County) Whole Foods store. Good clear amber look, the head an off-white covering. Caramel malts in the semi-sweet nose and taste, some mild hops keeping the sweetness in check. I enjoyed this beer and would have had another but my time was short and I wanted a couple more ticks before the women came for me! Nice body depth and overall a very pleasant first beer of the day, managed two more until they arrived.

Beautiful beer for this style. Buttery, nutty, bread flavor that is typical. Great balance of hops at the end. Easy to drink and great taste.

Orange golden, good clarity, white head. Nose is biscuity, toasty, fresh apple esters. Flavor is same plus mild citrus and herbal bitterness, hints of oak, honey. Really nice interpretation of esb, very under appreciated imo

355 mL bottle. Nice looking cola brown beer. Mild, fairly typical malty aroma. Not bad. Nice tasting, though, with nice mouthfeel for a 5% beer. Malty, bruised fruit, some earthy hops. Very sessionable.

Enjoyed on move in day. Thirst quenching! So refreshing and still so flavorful and full of character. Nothing heavy or dominating to ruin things. This was the perfect beverage on a hot sweaty afternoon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Mild oak flavor with some watered down malt. Reasonable bitterness, but this suffers from a lack of a solid malt backbone.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fad: Orange ravfarvet klar med et lille skumhoved. Lidt kedelig duft af malt og en smule citrus humle. Skuffende men drukket på strandpromenaden på Avila beach trækker gevaldigt op på oplevelsen.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle bottled 3/17/14. Pours a near crystal clear copper orange with a half finger, off white head that thins to a ring. Aroma has some fruity esters, a nice caramel, and a hint of barrel. Taste is slightly sweet with some nice barrel characteristics. Caramel, and slightly fruity with a short finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a lively carbonation. Overall very tasty and flavourful. Smooth barrel notes with some great caramel and fruity yeast taste.
