Cloudy, thin white head. Alot of lacing. Earthy and spicy. Deep bitterness. Im not getting any currants. Decent.

Tasted on tap at Pi, a Schlafly "tap takeover" to celebrate their 21st Anniversary. This was one of a four-part SMASH trial featuring Scottish Optic malt and a different hop each time. They were all a pale golden color with white foam, long-lasting with lace, but this one was noticeably hazier than the others. Interesting aromas: resiny, cedar wood, orange marmalade, woodsy, with a mellow tartness. Typical English hop impression, pleasant bitterness, flavor AND aroma, but seemed a little rougher/harsher than Fuggles and Goldings to me. Good, not great. These single hop experiments are a very cool way to train your palate, but there is an obvious reason why skilled brewers blend multiple types of hops.

Pours hazy yellow/orange with a modest sized white head. The aroma is a bit oniony and had floral hops along with a nice balance of caramel malt that’s a bit sweet, but not too much. It has a medium body that is quite smooth with some flowing carbonation. The flavor begins with onion, fruitiness, spice, light earth and floral hops notes. The malt shows more on the finish with a candy sweet aspect. More interesting hop variety than I expected it to be.
