look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A-Clear ruby amber, two finger head with some lacing

S-Caramel, grass, rather malty, could have used some more hops.

T-Rather malty, dirt, grass and pine, good deal of caramel. Not much hops or bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation.

O-Too malty for an APA, needed more of a hop presence.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Consumed 4/16/14

Appearance: Clear copper - some orange highlights - pours with an average-sized, off-white head, keeps a small cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing

Smell: Pale and light amber malts with a somewhat strange hop profile - the combination of Cascade and Saaz hops is interesting - some orange and grapefruit flesh and zest, as well as some herbal, spicy hop aromas - vaguely leafy - above-average malt sweetness for an APA, with some caramel, some sweet biscuits, and a touch of mint

Taste: At the very least, it's interesting - orange and grapefruit flesh with some zest and pith combined with some herbal, spicy, leafy, minty hops - pale and caramel malts, with some biscuit and toast flavors - a lot of sweetness, with malty sweetness and a honey-like sweetness - finishes a little sweet as well

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium, smooth, with some nice carbonation, could finish a little cleaner

Overall: No need to run to the hills

I'm not sure how I first heard about this beer, but I was intrigued by the story of the hops involved in this beer. The result is, indeed interesting. But it's not very special beyond that. Worth a try (despite being only brewed once, it's still around).

Bottle from Ayotte's
Pours a crystal clear deep amber color with a huge frothy off white head that persists forever leaving stickies all over the sides of the glass. Aromas of caramel, earth, pine and sulfur. The flavor is sweet rich caramel and toffee with just enough earthy pine to provide a break in the sweetness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet creamy bubbly mouthfeel. English inspired brew, easy to drink, but not really my cup of tea.
