This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured golden amber with a small white head. Light lacing. Nose of light malts and some floral hops. Medium in body. Flavor is malts and floral hops. Finish is a little astringent and some light fruit appears. Different than your average bitter. But very nice drinking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ The Torpedo Room. Apparently I never rated this despite having had it from the mixed pack. Clear copper pour with a white head. Really nice floral hops on the nose. Somewhat spicy and some grassy hops as well. Nice toasted malt and bread. Solid malt base on the palate. Good bready flavor and sweetness. Plenty of spicy and floral hops. Some mild bitterness of grass and herbs.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pale malt, orchard fruit, and sweet orange. In the mouth there is more generic pale malt, orange gumdrops, and an undertone of earthy hops. Medium bodied with a mild but persistent bitterness. Decent enough overall, but I was expecting more considering the brewers. Lacking in a bit of authenticity for the style too.

Bottle, pours clear orange copper, minimal khaki head. Nose is muted, earthy malts, graham cracker, subtle dark fruits. Much of the same on the palate as there's a pleasant bitterness on the finish but the flavor profile lacks complexity

Bottle. Found this floating in the back of the fridge. Poured an amber orange color. Heavy on the malt, a little bit nutty, a little bit straw-y. Seems like a pretty well-made beer, yet kinda boring. I suppose that goes with the style a little though.

Beautiful dark amber pour. Simple malty aroma, not much complexity but very pleasant palate, medium body and creamy. Good overall, not great.

Pours out a nice darker golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of lots of caramel, subtle herbal notes, grassy bitterness, dough and some grains. Taste is clean, dough, caramel, grains, wet bread, light grassy/herbal hops. These just aren’t my style.

Piney, bready, and slightly biscuity. Not bad, but lacks depth and character.
