3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of light fruits, bready malt, earthy hops, floral hops. Flavor of bready sweet malt, light fruits, jam, earthy hops, very light grassy hops. Light, slightly sweet, easy drinking. Decent APA, not terribly hoppy, but the subtle hopping adds an extra dimension to an otherwise boring beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, brewpub. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that fell to a thin covering. The nose is pretty light, just a bit of floral hoppiness with a bready and biscuity malt base. The flavor has just a light bitterness, lending the overall flavor to lean towards the malt. Slightly sweet and doughy with a bit of toastiness on the finish. Light to medium bodied, a touch clingy, with fizzy carbonation. Not a bad beer, but my least favorite in the series. Fuggles doesn’t do it for me in a single hop role.
