2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden orange colored pour with a white head. Some sweet toasted malt and bread with a little bit of grass. Mild floral hop notes, a bit of grass, and maybe some spice. Pretty watery. The flavor is also quite watery. Just a hint of citrus peel hops, some floral notes, and a little bit of bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Seasonal. Extra Special Bitter. 5% ABV. Buttery, typical commercial junk really. Drinkable, but nothing to note. Little to no character: muted citrus, silenced grain, and yet kinda chewy. Meh. Nothing to be negative about, but I’ll pass despite it being an obviously lazily crafted brew.
