3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice burnt orange color with off white foam. Light grainy aroma, hints of sweetness from grain. The flavor is more earthy and not as sweet. Simple English bittering hops give some dry floral a light spice with the pale English malts almost beating out the little bit of roasted grains. Lingering bitter with strange aftertaste, still a solid effort.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle poured in a shaker. Big bold maltiness. Caramel notes, medium bodied clean hop finish. If you love a lot of grain, you’ll like this, other than that, probably not so much.
