3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub, served in an imperial pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange color with a finger of eggshell white head that settles into an uneven film and light trailing lace. Aroma of sweet malts, orange citrus, grass, and dry cereal grains. Flavor of sweet tangerine citrus, sweet and caramel malts, apricot, grass, and cereal. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, juicy mouthfeel. I liked this way better than most EPAs with East Kent Goldings. Really nice job on this one.
