3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle - pours clear gold/copper with a thick white head that leaves chunky lacing. Aroma similar to many of GR’s other beers in that it’s muted, a result of the incredibly hard water they use. Still, nice - caramel malts, some green apple, a faint hint of sourness (not in a bad way). Flavour amps it up a notch, revealing fresh mown hay, light lemon notes, and a pleasing herbal quality, finished with a firm bitterness. Clean, simple, eminently quaffable, yet another solid release from GRB.
