Good, but a bit disappointing compared to most of their other beers. While it had a good flavor, it was still a little thin, almost falling into the light category

This was the second sample I had at the pub that I decided needed a whole pint for tasting. Though not nearly as impressive as the Black Cat Stout, it was still worthwhile; the very faint aroma was the only real off point. Otherwise, this is a zesty, lemony, light crisp summery ale, with caraway flavor indeed present and an interesting dryness akin to some dry ciders. A little on the thin side; worth trying though.
