3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 bottle. Brighter ruby color, light retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is earthy English malts and roasted grain. Real earthy with underlying sweetness.
Flavor is again mostly English malts with a touch of molasses and toffee. Pretty simple and straight forward. The texture is semi-dry with a thinner medium side in body. Malt dominates with very little, if any bitterness. Don’t know how different the original draft version at "The Shed " really was but this does hide the ABV real nice and drinks rather easy. Don’t go out of your way to try it but it is drinkable.
