4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
New 330ml bottle from swanbourne cellars. Pours amber/orange with thick white head which recedes with good lacing. Aroma is amazing apples, wood chips and caramel. Flavours are that of a rich english style pale-caramel, stonefruit, drying oak and a firm lingering bitterness. Great mouthfeel with solid carbonation. Love these little owls but this could be the best of the nest so far.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ambery red clear color with some foam. Caramel and extremely round malty promises in the taste. The taste is insanely creamy and slightly oily and caramely sweet. However there is a bitterness that compensates the excess sweetness without showing its bitterness. Charming beer that is basically very well balanced but it has some lovely edges as well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange amber with fizzy tan head, a half-inch that persists and leaves little lace but some skim.
Nose is grass, nuts, hay and citrus. Palate is piney hops, mild caramel malt and grassy, woody notes. A little bit of malt sweetness gives way to moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is resinous with slight fizz.
This is a better balanced and more traditional take on an IPA than American hipsters might prefer, but it still aims for that part of the palate. The cedar influence is not pronounced.

Bottle - hazy golden with a foamy pale brown head. Good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee, grass and spice. Taste of caramel, tar and roasted malts, followed by some honey and flowers and an earthy bitterness to finish. Medium body, low carbonation and quite warming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lovely brew! Moderate malty background, caramel, vanilla and that woody cedar touch that makes this one interesting and well balanced. Ofc.. Nice hop bill makes interesting play ripe fruits with dried fruits. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Enjoyable and refreshing brew
