3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour on tap is dark reddish with thin off white head, aroma has notes of slight grass but a lot of grainy, cereal, biscuity type malts, some slight caramel notes and hints of toffee. Taste is pretty plain and malty, I wish it was more APA style than English/bitter style, even fresh the hop presence is very weak and is dominated mainly by biscuit, toffee, cereal and caramel notes with slight earthy bitterness at the end.
