4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle into a nonic. Purchased at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville with a best before date of August 2015; 5% abv.
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a thick an creamy one finger white head. The head retention is downright amazing for such a light beer. Huge staying power and great lacing to boot.
If there is one thing that is lacking on this beer it is the aroma. Not a lot to comment about here but there is sweet grain with just a slight hint of toast.
The flavor really is more impressive with sweet caramel and toffee along with a bit of cereal grain and floral hops. Bitterness is on the light side but plenty enough to counter the sweetness and it really lets the malt shine through. The mouthfeel has some substance with a drying and lingering bitterness.
Overall, this is a really great English bitter and a very tasty beer overall. Oh what I would give to have this out of a cask. I’m glad I was able to pick this up.
