3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle - pours dark, crimson red, clear with caramel highlights. Small-medium tan-white head, mostly diminishing. Aromas of caramel, malt, and smoke dominate. Tastes of sweet malts, caramel, nuts, and finishing with a slightly bitter, cool herbal note. Creamy palate, medium bodied. It is an English Bitter. It is pretty dead-on stylistically. It is just not my favorite type of beer. Good on a lark though.
