3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a reddish tinge and a reasonable light brown foam. Smells wonderful of malt and fruit, but the smell is not particularly significant. It actually tastes really good fruit, toasted malt and hops bitterness is very nice balanced with the other flavors. The hops do not steal the taste of fruit and malt. I think that it is a great and lovely ale.
