Pours a mahogany color. Smell is of hops, floral. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, a touch sweet, a bit of alcohol. Overall an enjoyable beer.

12 oz. bb Feb 22, 2017. Clear shiny copper-amber with nice legs supporting a thin film of foam. Mild nose has some rich caramel, light toast and a hint of apple. Flavor is toffee turning to a bit of apple and citrus, then a long wood and cardboard finish. Medium-heavy body has a pleasant low-medium carbonation and shows a bit of the abv.

Love the winter warm as being the big strong English ale without the need for all the mulling spices.

Balanced overall.. Malty and nutty with some sweetness. Tempered with a good dose of hops that is not very bitter, but still very present. An interesting and very drinkable beer.
