Served on draft at the brewpub. Pours clear copper color with a medium sized off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of plums and other fruits. The taste is tart grainy malts, stone fruits, plums, citrus and a bitter finish. Highly carbonated, medium bodied.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at brewpub. Amber-brown pour with a thick sudsy head that leaves thick lace. The nose is of caramel, pale malt and English bitters. Flavors are much the same, with some caramel, melon, lightly metallic notes hitting mid-pull, and ends with some tea tannins and a crisp bitter finish. It’s very reminiscent of an ESB in the body; thinner and showing some skins/tannins in the mouth, but it does have substance on the palate, without being overtly complex. Makes for an easy summer quaff. Light and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from brewpub. Pours is a clear red. These guys make some solid beers assuming they are not infected. Toasted grain aroma a little more on the wheat side. Caramel malt aromas as well. Clean and clear flavors up front with a bitter and dry finish. Nice grassy hop finish with some citrus peel that lasts for a while.
