3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours unclear golden orange, amber-ish, with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. nutty and fruity caramel, very fruity - small red and yellow fruits, grassy, peppery, hint of licorice and other belgian-esque spices - imparted by yeast and not added spices - beautiful spicy esters in fact. moderate carbonation, light body - nice texture, balanced grassy-earthy-spicy finish - very nice mouthfeel. solid bitter - bomber for myself. much enjoyed!

An amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops, faint herbal odors, OK. In mouth, a nice nutty caramel malt with grassy hops, rye bread, not bad.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours maple syrup dark with a one finger cap that fades quickly. First few sips are a bit of a surprise -- is something wrong here? There’s something assertively vegetal happening here, almost like they brewed this with cabbage or something. Oh my. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Bitter poured a deep orangey red colour with a nice, fluffy, off white head. To the nose there are scents of caramel, cereal and malt. First sip was kind of thin with watery texture and not a lot of flavor. Light flavours of roasted malts, caramel and hay most predominant. Finsh is malty with a mild roasty flavor. Pretty good but needs to have more balls.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - pours a clear shimmering red-amber with a sticky off white cap that laces well. Light carbonation. Aroma is demure but distinct- sweet amber malts over spicy hops and a hint of fruit. Creamy mouth feel malty-fruity character, medium-light body. Flavour has hints of caramel, succulent fruit tones, spicy hopping and a solid malt back bone -. goes to a clean lightly bitter finish. This is a good example of a craft session bitter - I could tilt a few of these in a sitting - mild but flavourful, drinkable in the max!
