pintbypint (2800) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 15, 2013
750ml green bottle with a cap. Amber pour, hazy. Good foamy thick head at first pour, but dies down to a ring. Nose has slight farmhouse note, but moreso has a lemony citrus hop. Taste has brown bread like malts, touch of caramel. Finishes quite dry, hint of citrus hop that fades quickly. Lots of carboantion, and medium bodied, its dryness and carboantion akek it very drinkable and refreshing.

AshtonMcCobb (3552) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a stunning auburn. It would’ve been a 5 had the head not disappeared so quickly. Nose - redcurrants and cherry. Some wood spice. Taste - more wood and red fruit. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a dry tangy finish. Overall - interesting and enjoyable.
