3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On cask at the brewhouse. Aroma of wheat and sweet grain. Slight orange aroma in the back. Slightly hazy copper orange with a white head that lingers down the glass. Sweet malt with moderate bitter finish and a carbonic bite at the death that is slightly off. Some floral hop flavor as well.

Cask Pour. Pours clear orange amber with a medium creamy white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel dominated, perhaps some roasty notes. Flavor is caramel, grass, a bit of metal. Lightly sweet and just some token bitterness. Medium body. Meh.

Pint in the tap room at the brewery. Very much an English style, with a smooth head and very little fizz. Darker than most ambers. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour with a white head. Bready malt aroma, some nice toast, and a good combination of floral, earthy, and spicy hops. Moderate sweetness overall on the nose. The flavor has a good malt sweetness of toffee, toast, and bread. Rather hop forward, particularly floral and spicy hop notes. Minimal bitterness.
