3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Washed out autumn leave orange. Sticky, off white foam. Slow but steady carbonation. Aroma of grass, light citrus and faint malts. Soft and mild with a playful crispness. Citric hops and a caramel toastyness start it out. Grassy bitterness and a touch of crystal sweetness. Medium body. Turns grassier and less citric as it warms. Alcohol is tasted as well, which is strange for such a low ABV brew. Finishes bitterly grassy and a touch spicy. Seems to be missing something, besides an R or two.

Decent color and head; fruity and hoppy, but also a bit sour, and the finish seemed off. Had at the pub; maybe the tap line was bad?

NIce cloudy orange color, slightly thin tasting after a while, but starts off fairly robust. A good one to gulp cold on a hot day.

English-style Bitter with small head and relatively low carbonation. Has a real ’homebrewed’ earthiness to it. Soft, somewhat rich, smooth and creamy. Def easy to drink as a session beer. Has kind of a slippery mouthfeel, if that makes sense. Decent dose of hops in the back end, but leaves behind a curious bitterness. Willamette seems to come through just fine, but it was difficult to discern the Cascade hops.
