Don’t know how this one scored so low, it’s beautiful, full flavored, malty with just the right amount of hops. The aroma is mild and it pours a dark cloudy brown with a frothy head. Honestly, when I’m drinking this I imagine it’s what Tolkien’s Hobbits or Dwarves would brew or what they might have had in old England. Well worth trying for fans of malty ales, gamers and Tolkien fans.
