3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle
This was a decent county tick that I stumbled across in Stratford at the grocery store. For the price I would have bought more if I did not have a big backlog of beers to drink before the trip home.
Aroma / Appearance - The caramel bronze base has a soft white head that fades away very quickly. Watered down shots of caramel give it the tinge of overdone brownies that are still chewy in the middle. Everything is pretty low key.
Flavor / Palate - Caramel, noble hops, and muddy twigs are acceptable but do not have an amazing presence. The earthiness that grounds the malts hold back the hops for a while. Eventually they do come through and leave a mild bitter finish. This is a passable beer but I would not have gone out of my way to buy it.
