3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2016 (bottle) and carrefour huelva (can). In Ikea?s english pint glass. Watching Sons of Anaechy 7x10. High drinkability and good balance between sweetness and bitterness. One of the best usage of english hops ive seen. Not much difference between can and bottled version. They use a good can! Maybe can version feels a bit more smooth and bottle version feels a bit more bitter? Not sure...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 13B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 4CGM22:39. AROMA: toasty malt with a slight caramelly background and low sweetness present. balanced to forward earthy hop aroma. APPEARANCE: brown color and clear. moderate ivory head with good to medium retention. TASTE: initial of a moderate to low sweet caramel note, followed by a supportive floral hop flavour. medium-low bitterness just to offset the slight sweetness, that lingers beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium-low body with a slight texture. moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a nice brown ale showcasing british hops (with a floral and earthy tone), and less caramelly malt.
