Poured from bottle, pours a clear amber with a white head and a little bit of lacing in the glass, the aroma is sweet with some bread and caramel notes, the flavor is much of the same, crisp and easy drinking, nothing blows you away with this beer but it’s just drinkable all around.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from a 550ml brown bottle, attractive graphic design and foil, into a nonic pint glass, just the way God intended it. It poured a reddish amber colour with chill haze, moderate cap of beige foam, tight little bubbles, and lots of fine lace. Intensely fruity, caramelly, an exquisite balance of malty sweet and hoppy bitterness, notes of orange marmalade, golden raisins, caramel apples, dried apricots. Delicious aspects of kettle caramelization and open ale fermentation. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, well-rounded bready mouthfeel, tangy hops and fruity esters last long into the aftertaste. Simultaneously complex and easy-drinking, this is fecking delicious beer. Absolutely my kinda thing, puts stateside pale ales to shame.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite easy and uninspiring with some cookies and nuts in the aroma. Simple, drinkable and not spectacular. Classy one with no highs.
