Beer engine pull at the Khyber. Cloudy orange brown pour with a big foamy head. Bitter fruity floral hop flavors. Pinecones. Passionfruit. Grapefruit pith. Wildflowers. Toasted wheat bread. Medium-light malt. Watery body, but that could just be the cask talking. Decent dry session beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle, pours a dark Orange/amber colour with a thin head that leaves the side of the glass as it dissipates. Strong hop profile on the nose. Pine, hints of citrus. Well balanced flavour initial fruity bitterness with some lightly toasted malts in the background. Not extensive aftertaste and slightly thin mouthfeel however these don’t detract to much from a fine beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap.
Poured a clear clear dark amber with a one finger off-white head.
Aroma of piny hops with a little bit of fruit, along with a decent dose of malt.
Flavor had pine and citrus up front from the hops, followed by a moderate bitterness and plenty of malt to balance out the hops. Caramel and roasted malt nicely complimented the fruitiness and bitterness from the hops. Mouthfeel was a little thin which detracts from the beer quite a bit.
Overall, a delicious amber that is somewhat hampered by mouthfeel. It seems like everything is there then all of a sudden, mouthfeel just drops off into a watery nothingness. That aside, I would most definitely seek this out.
