2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft... Hazy, burnt orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Decent retention. Earthy, spicy, citric nose. Excellent balance in flavor, but lacks any real character. Not offensive. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Short, crisp, very clean finish. Refreshing, but more like a lager than an ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. The most distinctive of the beers on offer, if a bit atypical for a spring ale. Amber colour, with a distinct dry malt edge to the aroma and flavour. But hop levels were low and, like all of the beers I tried, clean but lacking punch. Entirely drinkable though.
