Clear copperish Amber with a thick light beige foamy head. Toasted English muffin on the nose--classic English bitter aroma. Smooth and clean flavor with some gentle toast, gentle earthy hoppy flavor, and a clean malty body. A bit clean overall and colors inside the lines a bit.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask @ Rogue Public House - Portland. Orange in color with a small layer of white foam. Bread and toast on the nose. Pretty floral, a little grassy, and some tea. Decent enough nose. Nothing really terribly exciting about the flavor, but it’s got some good hop character and a substantial maltiness. Big bread and toasted malts. Pretty decent stuff.
