Its wide distribution compared to the real rare beers may cause some people to not be so excited about it. Since its not super hoppy with a tame label compared to the crazy awesome american microbreweries, some may not go crazy when rating it. I on the other hand, loooooove this beer. It is so smooth, the head is probably one of the best (specially on tap of course) than way too many beers Ive had. Once the head goes away, you can twirl your class and it comes back up. Its just the perfect beer for me when I want to guarantee myself a good beer. In other words, its a safe bet! We tend to forget that safe is safe because its GOOD!

On nitro at gaithersburg British bar. Aroma of toasty bread, toffee. Caramel. Biscuits. Malt dominated. No hop aroma. Appearance is dark amber, clear. White off white head. Persistent as is expected for nitro. Good lacing. Flavor is toasty bready. Caramel. moderate hop bitterness but malt dominates. Moderate dry finish with lingering bitterness in aftertaste. No residual sweetness. Medium full body. Low carbonation as should be for nitro beer. Mediums dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frothmeister (786) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin very pale beige head. Mineral heavy nose with apple, raisin, faint vanilla, brown sugar, and very light resinous notes. Taste wise, sweet with lots of dried fruit like notes, honey, brown sugar and a light woody note that leads into sweet darker malt, dried fruit, light spice and just a bit of mineral bitterness in the finish. Its a bit sweet for my tastes, but the taste profile is pleasant.

Mid-brown pour with little head. Malty, somewhat sweet with light toffee and caramel flavours. Nice enough.
