Aroma is actually pretty subtle overall but you can get roasted malts, caramel, hay and slight clove. Taste is a basic sweet maltiness with an even more basic tanginess. Appearance is a clear dark copper with a thin pearl head that retains moderately well.

Citrus hops and raisin fruity, sweet malt aroma and flavor. Quite a bit of pepper spice, and some tartness in the flavor.

From bottle. Pours a rich reddish copper with a medium thickness off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel and malts. Nicely sweet, some bitterness, easy to drink and delicious. Medium full mouthfeel.

Very friendly party pleaser style albeit miles away from being dumb. Nice sweetness right through the palate and fresh new world hops. Easy to like (a lot).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2014-12-04. Brown body wit a small beige head. 3+ Aroma is relatively alcoholic, with some green hops. Flavour is moderately bitter, malty core, muted citrus below green hop character. Quite bitter in the finish. Average bodied palate, light carbonation. Okay, more malty than I’d prefer. The hops aren’t really allowed to shine. Bottle shared by Blankboy.

A good, well malted brew with loads of caramel and toffee atop light and fruity NW hops. The pour is a bright amber gold with a foamy finger of beige head. The nose has a nice heavy malt with a toasted caramel note and a fruity hop accent. A bit full bodied and sweet with caramel and light nutty notes. The finish is fruity and a mild astringent with a lingering hop profile and a moderate bitterness. Overall, a good brew but not a great example of the style.
