Hazy blond color; low carbonation and thin head. Fresh aroma, with light aroma of malt and hop, surprising. Light body, with some malt flavor, some sweetness, light fudge, herbal tea touch; quite strong bitterness, a bit metallic at the end. A bottle with cask conditioned quality, a good surprise.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aptly gold pour, small but lingering white head that leaves some pretty patches of lacing down the glass. Orange peel, pine, floral. A restrained buttery/candy aroma. Pithy orange zest, apricot jam, clean bright malt with a touch of biscuit in the finish. Light, refreshing, but with a nice heft. A solid, flavorful ale. Just a little bit viney in the finish.
