earthy, leaves, composty smells brown, clear, minimal head, light sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, thin feel, soft carbonation, bitter,
by far the most over hyped over rated beer on this entire website . very bland. looked very good but it was disappointing. the head was gone in under a minute. it was as thin as the rest of the beer. the flavor wasn’t anything special. tasted like garden pond water

Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Kevin. Pours a nice rusty amber color with decent white head and little carbonation. A really good bitter . Would definitely have another.

Aromat słodowy, karmelowy, słodki, jest też jakby żelazo, ale raczej od chmielu, troszkę owocowy. Kolor rubinowy, klarownym piana trwała, ładnie zdobi szkło. W smaku kwaskowe, kawowe, lekkie landrynki, goryczka średnia. Uczucie szczypania na języku - wydaje się, że od zbyt dużego wysycenia, zalegająca goryczka. Ogólnie mi nie smakuje, wad jako takich nie ma, aromat słaby ale przyjemny. Drugi raz nie kupie.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Urban Golf, Kensington. Reddish brown, lots and lots of carbonation. Aroma of caramel malt, forest floor, some strawberry, biscuit spread. Taste is a uniform but satisfying malty bittersweet with a more rounded bitter finish. A bit of spicy hop in the aftertaste. Far too carbonated. Not a patch on cask, but good enough

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5L bottle. Red amber with a frothy off-white head. Aromas are dusty / mineral, herby hops, cherry, cooked vegetables and some skunky notes. Flavor is pretty much all herby hops along with more of the mineral flavors. Finishes with a long, mild herby hop. Medium body with a thin mouthfeel and mild, albeit sharp carbonation. Overall, a mild beer. Very drinkable, but not much character.
