4/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Head was barely present, less than an inch, faded in a minute or so. Deep brown amber in color, somewhat opaque.
Smell is rather earthy and pleasant, but not very distinctive.
Taste is rather pleasant, with a decent body. Begins smooth and transitions to notes of sharpness and hops, then moves to an almost sweet and earthy taste with lingering sharpness. Very crisp, refreshing and a bit spicy with hints of citrus, and a somewhat dry aftertaste (not a bad thing).
A very pleasing beer, very drinkable. The only think that leaves to be desired is the appearance and lack of a nose to the beer. An excellent bitters, and good session beer.
