A hazy copper colored beer with a thin tan head. Both the aroma and flavor are sweet malty with primary notes of grass. I find the body thin.

GBBF. Also drank on the 3rd. Hazy amber beer with a little white head. Light dry palate. Nice caramel malt backbone. Floral hops with an interesting streak of pineapple. Whisper of tangerine. Finishes light and dry and with some grapefruit and orange marmalade bitterness. Bitter aftertaste. An interesting and tasty beer.

Theydon_Bois (16626) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Tap at Walking Man, Stevenson, 24/05/13. Clear golden copper with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel, sugars, fruits. Taste comprises dark malts, caramel bite, light hops, biscuit notes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweetish finish. Ok drinkable effort however I expect a little more depth and complexity from a 6.5% beer.
