3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in no-nik imperial pint glass: Clean deep golden near amber hue with a lasting frothy head and good spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and herbal hop, dusty pale malts, hint of crystal, very slight butterscotch British Ale yeast ester. The taste is smooth malt versus bittering hop balance. While not overly complex it is an easy drinker and far better than the other offering I had from this brewery. Slight acidic fruitiness from the yeast and some lingering metallic notes. The mouth feel is light to medium bodied with a sprite bite, tinny finish. Overall a solid drinker that methinks would be most excellent on handpull.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ Oluthuone Pekko.
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Very nutty and malty aroma and flavor, mild hops on the nose, some caramel and dry fruity notes on the flavor. Somewhat creamy and slick palate with a bitter dry malty finish. A straightforward, typical English Bitter. Clean. A bit too English for me though. Decent anyway.
