3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, dark amber. A tall beige head remains for a while before disappearing and leaving behind a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of dried cherries, faint alcohol, grassiness, and a bit of pine. Taste is more in line with the style--sweetness from malts has a rye bread character, followed by a bit a toffee. Flavor becomes more bitter and astringent toward end as hops become more pronounced. Mouthfeel is just slightly chewy, with a light hint of carbonation. A great beer that offers some depth and complexity while remaining true to an established style.

-from the bottle- English fruity yeast, pepper, floral and some leather notes. Sweet, yeasty, earth and citrus finish. Overall: Meh. Almost Belgian in character, and that is probably unintended.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark leather brown with a lovely reddish hue and highlights, good creamy head with some retention and lacing. A decent cover of head stays throughout. Mild aroma consisting of toast, toffee, and British hops, in that order. Mild sweetness pretty well balanced by light hops with floral and earthy notes. Seems like it's going to finish dry but the real finish turns wet and watery first with light carbonation then finally finishes with lingering chalky hops. Overall a very nice beer but IMHO far from excellent. Bottle was purchased half a world away from the brewery so storage duration and temps could be off. If it had a bit more of the floral hops and a slightly heavier mouthfeel I might love this beer. It is highly attenuated and dry with a bit of hardness in the water which I usually love.

Bottiglia da 0,50. Birra dal gusto molto affumicato. Schiuma scarsa e poco persistente. Gusto corposo e fortemente legnoso. Gradazione media con finale forte e deciso. Forse troppo alcoolica.

This was a different beer it didn't have a great flavor but it wasn't a bud light it was very above average if I had to guess.
