2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear ruby amber with minimal head. Rich full aroma, best described as of "beer", with hints of caramel and bread. Quite dry in contrast to the richness and sweetness of the aroma, with a peppery finish. Will be great with pizza.

Wife bought from Stonemanor. Amber-brown, average head, malt-forward aroma, but you can tell this will be a light-flavored ale while pouring it. Overall pretty balanced but not much going on. Session pub Brit beer, but without the smoothness.

Aroma is sweet with malts. Pours amber with a small white head. Taste is sweet with malts, fruit and some grapes. Palate is thin and very drinkable. Overall an okay beer which is both tasteful and drinkable.
