3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a glass stein. Copper to amber color with a white-barely-there head.
Wow. I cannot pick up anything... okay, a slight malty/musty smell.
Malty sweetness at first, then bitter, slightly citrus flavor. The malt and hops are fairly balanced.
Medium body, moderate carbonation. Very bubbly in the mouth.
Quite different from most American IPAs. Or maybe American IPAs are different from English IPAs. Either way, it is more malty than most IPAs I’ve had. The only hangup was the smell, or lack of. It was tasty and different.

Copper with a thin head. Fairly neutral in most characteristics but still very drinkable with a nice session-like texture. It has a small sugary sweetness in both aroma and taste.

550ml bottle, pours clear golden brown with a foamy white head. Aroma has tangy orange and citric apple over a delicious caramel & toasted bread malt backbone. The finish is well balanced and moderate bitter. Carbonation average. Nice!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and floral fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some floral fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and faint bread with some floral fruitiness, light grassy - herbal hoppyness. Sweetish bitter with caramel. Floral fruitiness with caramel just do not work for me.

Golden straw color, thick head. Nose is soft malt and hops. Bittersweet. Middle is light caramel malt and a hint of grassiness. Finish is a wrestling match between the malt and hops; hops win by a neck. Very balanced.

In short: a hoppy tasty ale.
Pours quite clear dark gold, with nice off white head. Some head retention and lacework. Malty, caramel, fruity aromas. Medium body, viscous texture, average carbonation. Taste is malty, smooth, fruity, caramel, nice mild hop punch. Really well balanced and enjoyable. Very good beer!.
