UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 A dark amber beer with a white creamy head mostly lasting. Aroma is malty, hoppy (fruity and spicy). Full body. Flavour is mainly sweet carmel malt with notes of fruit and mild spice. Dry and fruity bitter in the lingering finish. It is a very tasty beer.

No idea how this beer has such a high rating. It has nearly no taste at all. Slight citrus-y aftertaste. It is very smooth, but almost too watery. Drinkable, but no flavor to it.

Forms a good head and stays active. Clear, rich orange color. Zesty, hoppy spike in the aroma reminds me somewhat of my mom's banana bread, but not venture to wheat brew levels. Hop character is also assertive in the flavor, and mouthful dries quickly leaving behind a nice tingle. A good beer no doubt, but a great beer? Need to try it again, maybe let it sit for a while.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Fresh hops, creamy sweet malt, a little fruit, vanilla and butterscotch - soft and inviting. Taste: nice bitter/ full round caramalt, sweet too, best English drop I’ve tried I think - very drinkable with noticeable hop smack and a tingly zing across the palate. Long lingering bitter aftertaste - like an IPA! Will try again (next time not at 3 in the morning!). Extra points for new labeling.
