3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at People’s. Pours a deep copper with an offwhite head. The nose is strongly caramel with a slap of grassy/herbal East Kent Goldings. Very English and very caramel forward. Light fruity notes. On tasting, good level of bitterness and caramel flavor, not overly sweet. Grassy hops. Not my favorite but quite well made. OKay.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nicely hopped bitter. Balanced well with some caramel and sweetness from the malts. Well rounded and goes great with lunch or dinner.
