4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Courtesy of Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. This beer was certainly a pleasant surprise. Usually these gimmicky-type bottles house awful beers. Pours a thorough amber color with a medium thin and quickly dissipating light beige head. Very thin lacing. Assertive floral hops aroma. Excellent balance of hops and malt in the flavor. Nice, clean finish is bitter and a little spicy. Very good.

On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Decent choice for cask as bitter and malts makes it a drinker.

The aroma is lightly malty and heavily floral.
This clear amber ale has a medium sized, creamy head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing.
The flavor is very malty up front and fairly bitter on the backside.
Fizzy. Medium bodied. Watery mouthfeel. Medium length, slightly bitter and a very very dry, crisp finish.
