Review for thebeerguy.
Expect early fruity flavours made of Strawberry, Raspberry, Lychee and summer fruits. This is then taken on by a biscuity caramel malt with touches of hay too. Then the hops fight back with their bitterness and bring back the fruit flavours from before. This mixes with the malty flavours and blasts around your mouth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Bottledog. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is soft, toasty, brown bread, wood and earth. The taste is smooth, toasty, grain, decent bitterness, light grapefruit peel and pepper with a crisp, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. A bit watery if truth be told. Fairly inoffensive.
