Pours a dark copper with a foamy white head. Has a light malt aroma. Flavor is sweet malts and low bitterness. Has a light to medium mouth feel. The malts are a tad too sweet, and there isn’t much else to this. It’s okay, but not something I would return to.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the South Beach Bar & Grille, South Beach, SD 19/04/14.
Had this many times in years gone by, time to catch up with a rating!
Clear dark amber with a moderate off white come light beige covering.
Nose is floral hops, light perfume, caramel malt, orange, toasted malt.
Taste comprises caramel malt, perfumed tones, subtle hoppage, orange rind, straw.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
A well made easy drinking APA which would suit those just starting to acquire a taste for hoppy beers. I used to think this was hoppy when I first had it 10 or so years ago, how my palate has changed - decent enough none the less.

A nice crisp taste. Not overly hoppy. Fairly balanced between initial hoppy taste and malty after-taste. Smooth and even throughout.

On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a hazy amber with a chunky white head. Sweet toffee aroma, dark berry too. Medium body, medium carbonation. Quite earthy with a nice funky veg vibe. Touch of toffee, light lemon, woody resin, not to sweet and finishes fairly dry. Nice enough.
