3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper pour with white head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malt. Flavor is very malty but with a strong bitter hop finish. Pretty good but didn’t jump out at me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark hazy copper color. Smells of very clean, floral hops, and a rich sweetness. Hop bitterness is dominant in the flavor, but there is some roastyness and a bit of chocolate flavor. Mouthfeel was rich and satisfying. The cask version of this was bad ass, but im just rating the standard version here. Overall, a great beer that I will drink much more of.

Tried this on tap at The Flying Saucer in Addison, TX. Sweet malty aroma. Notes of caramel and toffee in the flavor profile, good beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Muted hop aroma. Pours a deep orangish amber. Sharp bite up front, then some fairly tame biscuity malts, then a ton of hop complexity - very nice and interesting blend of English hops. Finishes very smooth. Nice body to it, while still feeling crisp and refreshing.

Dark amber with off-thick white head. Aroma of caramel, and a little nuttiness. Nice hops and bitterness with a little bit of citrus in the finish. Good one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I went to the brewery and tried all the beers. This one stuck out the most from my trip. It had a wonderful hop infused taste. It wasn’t hoppy enough to blow my socks off, but the blend of hops was great. The aroma had a primary hop and carmel smell. Overall, I would not hesitate to buy this or order it at a pub. I even bought a T-shirt of the beer after the tour.

From bottle. Pours a rich amber hue with a thick off-white head. Aroma of caramel, spice and a touch of citrus. Taste of bitter, caramel, mild spice, and some malts. Almost a tea flavored finish on the palate. Pretty good for this style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy musty aroma with slight fruitiness and a hint of chocolate. Nice dark copper red color with toasty thin disappearing head leaves light lacing. Sweet malt and citrus flavors up front with earthy spicy floral hop flavors dominating the finish. Nice drinkable mouthfeel compliments bier well, to style. Overall I’d like more English yeast character and a touch more complexity to push this bier to being special. Otherwise very drinkable, well bittered but fairly balanced.
