3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It poured a red/mahogany color with a thin beige head. The aroma is slightly malty with caramel overtones. There is a bit of a roasted barley flavor, with a nice balance of hops and malt. This beer has a nice, smooth mouthfeel, and a good finish. A very good brew! This beer would pair nicely with an authentic fish and chips meal.

On tap at the brewey. This beer had a vegitable flavor like the golden. Pours light amber with a small off-white head. Smooth caramel malt start to a mild hopped, but balanced finish. Very sessionable beer, but had a funky vegitable flavor towards the finish.

This was a really great beer. A beer that captures what a perfectly balanced aroma and flavor profile should be. Rich and sweet matliness, some rich fruits and caramel, with just a hint of toffee. Nice!
