3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle # 119579 and served in a Fullers nonic pint glass: Plae amber with a smooth frothy head but minimal lace. The aroma and taste are a bit young and missing that richness character found often with many of the FVA. In fact the malt character of this is quite disappointing... where is the Optic, Maris Otter or even Golden Promise? Whatever organic malt this is, it is not up to FVA standards IMO. The Sovereign hops piney notes also seem out of place. Too bad the outstanding 2012 EKG crop got wasted here. Add the the mouth feel is thinner than often found in the FVA series and you have an utterly disappointing brew. I do not think age will help this in the least bit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gorgeous amber colored beer with a thick off-white head that lasts. Nose of sweet malt and sour yeast with hints of toasted bread. Taste is both sweet and sour at the same time, making for a deliciously balanced brew. Then, hints of vanilla and white chocolate come through, ending with slightly bitter nuts. Absolutely delicious. The only thing you wonít like about this beer is that your glass will be empty way too quickly.
