2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Draught at Realtail festival at Freetail) clear deep copper, very few bubbles on the edges. Nose of honey, cereal grains, fruity. Taste of raw grain mash, cereal, mild honey, biscuit, permanent hair chemicals, and butter. Oddly drinkable with a clean finish, that remains bitter and fruity on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at the Freetail and Real Ale barrel-aged festival.
The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is strong on the toffee malts. The flavor is a little bit different. I get notes of piney and grassy hops along with some toffee malt. The hop bitterness and malty sweetness is very well balanced in this beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
