3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Copper in colour with moderate yet spritzy carbonation. Aromas are of mellow grapefruit, toasted malt, and a bit of caramel. Flavours are a blend of pale, toasted and caramel malts, backed by some orchard fruit and mild citrus. Light bodied with a bright mineral-like finish. Easy drinking and clean with more complexity than one would expect. Solid overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper orange pour, off-white head. Caramel, toast, spiciness and floral character on the aroma. Flavor is along the same lines with faintly resinous bitterness on the finish. A surprisingly clean and balanced mellow beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasantly balanced aroma of caramel malt and floral hops. Clear amber body is topped by a low white head that recedes to a thin partial cover with some lacing. Flavour is as aroma suggests with pleasant bitterness offsetting the caramel malt. Medium light body with moderate, lightly prickly carbonation. A very drinkable beer! Sampled on tap on St. Patrick’s day at Sunset Grill.
