look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Pours a gold colour with reddish hues. Good head and lacing.

Smell is juicy malt interspersed with English hop aromas.

Little bit of toast. Do get the yeast coming through with some fruity flavours. Fair bit of tea in the aroma.

Taste is simplistic malt with loads of bittering hops.

Mouthfeel is medium thin with decent carbonation. Quite a lot of hop resin. Loads of bitterness all over the palate, reminiscent of over-brewed black tea.

Massive bittering hops without any malt to reign them in results in a beer which is a bit much on the palate and one I'm not in a hurry to return to. Nevertheless a good rendition of the style.
