3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden color with a white head. Strong biscuit aroma, a touch of cracker, and lots of bread. A floral and lightly herbal hop profile, maybe a slight spiciness to it as well. The flavor is quite heavy on the sweetness. Bread, biscuit, and lots of cracker malt favors. There’s a nice floral hoppiness, some mild citrus peel, and a solid spicy hop flavor. Quite drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale straw colour. Sticky white head and lacing. The nose is sweet and fairly aromatic. A little bit of floral hoppiness and a kind of spicy hop flavour as well. There is a touch of white pepper as well. It still comes across as too sweet and under hopped. Not sure what others are tasting here, but I’m not really a fan.
