Hearty sweet toasted malt backbone that is resplendent with toffee and caramel. Pretty smooth, if not a little on the chewy side, light chocolate notes and some ripe fruit intermingle with some light spice and fir notes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from GBBF 2011 and drunk at home. Clear russet colour with thin lasting off white head. Certainly a decently intense hop aroma with some toffee there too. Some empty toffee in the mouth. But more hops on the end are quite decent. Like some American beers, this almost seems to clean for its own good. Not a lot of yeast character and the malt flavours are not as full as they could be. Bit of boiled sweet on the toffee and some earthyness on the hop flavour. Decent level of bitterness. ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a nice caramel color with a slightly off white head. Aroma had a strong caramel malt profile up front and was balanced out by a nice bitter hop note. Flavor was well balanced between sweet malts and hops. Finish was smooth and a little on the light side. Somewhat two-dimensional but it worked. A decent session ale.
