Bottle. Pours amber with a medium, off-white head. Malty caramel and bread aroma with some nice floral and grassy hop notes. Caramel and bread malt flavors with a touch of nuttiness and a surprising amount of grassy and floral hop bitterness.

On hand pump. Foamy off white head, creamy appearing. Smooth, a little too much hops for me - moderately harsh flavors with smooth body. Not bad though, nice sweetness with good lasting flavors and a long retaining aftertaste.

My first try at a Yards brew, and I mighty impressed. Nothing earth-shattering, but it’s got a great taste, and the pour looks absolutely gorgeous.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A crappy version of a traditional style. Not enough depth of malf, complexity in the mouthfeel, or traditional yeast tones.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep but clear reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is of grapes an d roasted grain. Mouthfeel is full and the palate finishes clean. There's a slight yeasty taste that lingers but other than that its well balanced. I could buy a case of this.
