Bottle thanks to Fitz. Pours brown with a small off white head. Aroma is very simple, basic, some malt and doughiness, herbal and a touch piney and citric hop note. Flavor is much more sweet, strong malt character, bready and caramel before a stronger hop finish. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Good for a style that Im not too big on.
Can: Poured a clear brown color ale with an off-white foamy head. Aroma of dry caramelized malt with nice cereal notes and nice citrusy hops. Taste is also a mix of dry caramelized malt notes with some citrusy hops with no real discernible bitterness. Body is about average with good carbonation. Simple yet very well brewed with great flavours. rejtable (2888) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2017
