3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: a clear, coppery reddish hue, with a solid white head, soft and creamy.
Aroma: clean to the point of empty, but not without it's good points, still fresh and zesty.
On the palate: a neat little blitz of hops storms a quick buzz, but fades soon thereafter. Body is light/medium.
Tasty fruitiness (cherries, grapes) pervades the flavor profile, and remains throughout consumption of this very satisfying, and flavorful ale.
After the pint was drained, I had one on cask, and it was creamier, lighter, smoother, utterly delicious.
