3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.5 A: Must say that this is a fine looking beer. Crystal clear amber in color. Off-white (with a touch of yellow) creamy as hell head with above average retention and tons of lacing.
3.5 S: Nose is full of sticky sweetness and a touch of graininess. No sign of hops as malts dominate. Crystal malts.
3.5 T: Way more balanced that I was expecting. There is a pleasant hop bitterness that I wasnít expecting. Buttery diacetyl accompanies lots of sweet caramel malt flavor. A touch grainy as in the nose.
4.0 M: Medium body. Good creaminess. Could use more carbonation, but carb is fine for the English style.
3.5 D: Not a bad brew, but not really my cup of tea. Iím not a big fan of English styles.
