Bottle at a wedding reception. Aroma is caramel malts, some citrus hops. Taste is malt-forward, sweet, but too much hop bitterness in the finish. Good overall, but does not stick to the confines of the style very well.

Pours a dark, reddish brown. Roasted malts, brown sugar on the nose. Start off with a bitter, hoppy flavor, then ends on notes of toffee, caramel, and brown sugar. Medium bodied, somewhat oily mouthfeel. An interesting take on the traditional style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour was a clear dark copper with an average off white foamy head that left streaky lacing.The aroma was of a toasted light bready malts, mild grassy hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, and toffee.The taste was malty with a mild caramel sweetness at first, but quickly became bitter sweet with an earthy and mildly spicy finish. Overall this was a brew that did not have much complexity. Although what it did have seemed to work well enough.

There is nothing overly powerful taste wise, it is well balanced with some notes of toffee. Gets better with every sip!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bready with a little caramel from the mild malt like a traditional english/scotch ale. A little carbonation with a hint of bitterness from the hops. Never a big fan of the style but this is well done.
