4 oz. sampler from Growl Movement. Brownish copper in color. Flavor is fairly bready with an earthy sort of quality to it. Well hopped but didn’t seem to have much in the way of a true English hop flavor to it.

Clear deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Great condition again on the US bar! Thin malts, slightly sweet and with a light toffee streak. Spicy orange hop, thin but pretty fresh-spicy. Trace of something sweet before light dry finish. Spicy linger. Tasty but a tad thin.
