2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle, split with Matts_Property, pours clear amber orange with almost no head. Aroma of bready malts, slight caramel tone and sort of a syrupy quality. Flavour is quite sweet, with bready and caramel malt, a slightly cloying syrupy tone, with a lingering breadiness and light hop character. Low complexity, with soft carbonation. Nothing special here.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a clear pale amber/brown, with no head. Aroma of honey, caramel, malts, bread. Flavour is quite muted, grass, bread, light caramel, honey. Only the fizzy carbonation holds your attention. Not nasty, but easily forgettable.

Pours dark amber with biscuit notes and a light toast Malt dominates with the grains really shining and going long, you do get a light hop hit but this one is all about the malts.
