Super smooth bitter ale. Not a lot of bite in this bitter, but it’s a nice sessioner with a nice mixup of hops and malt. Nothing too overpowering, but certainly a nice brew.

Pretty malty. Has a very strange texture to it. Hard to explain and not a good thing. Overall, not a fan.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours clear and amber with orange highlights and a small, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The nose features lightly toasted malts, raw honey and tea biscuits. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is toasty and sweet. Hopped just enough to keep the sugars and sweetness at a comfortable level. There’s some nice toffee and a trace of peppery bitterness in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a goblet, displaying a slightly hazed, coppery amber color, with a frothy head of off white foam that rapidly diminished to a bubbly ring & film, and left spots & strands of lacing on the glass. The nose was malt, with some caramel sweetness, pit fruit as apricot, and hints of candied orange, and vanilla. Usually noticed in the aroma, the flavor began with some toastiness, continued with the esters, and added moderate earthy & rind-like bitterness, with some lingering nature. Light to medium bodied, with lively carbonation, then light tartness, and some dryness to the finish. Decently sessionable.
