2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden/copper color with a hint of red, and a ring of gentle head. Gentle hop-laden aroma, pleasing, though not leading to as vital of a floral flavor as I would have anticipated. Let down by a watery, flat body. There is something else emerging from in the flavors as it warms, suggestive of caramel/sugar-covered peanuts, I think. (on tap, Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford)
