Sweet cara malt nose, brushed copper color, tight creamy head. Yeasty middle and a tight metallic toasted malt. Strong hop end that turns to roastedness. Kinda all over the board and the components don’t really come together. Nice flavors, but unsophisticated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Soft amber colour, thin white head. Really fruity, cherry and blackberry with some caramel and toffeeish malt. Flavour is like a wee heavy, caramel malt, spicy, and hint of honey/molasses. Sweetness is well balanced however by some definite hop bitterness.
