look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: dark orange with yellow hues, big white head that stick around about half the drink. good lacing throughout
S: slight malty aroma, no real malty sweetness. There is a pronounced moderate fruity character here (raisons, red apples, and grapes)
T: there is a caramel sweetness in the background, hiding behind some darker fruit notes. Decently firm hop bitterness, with a citrus as well as grassy hop flavor. Balance leans towards the bitterness but not overwhelming; some nice fruity esters. There is a pretty good english yeast character on display
M: medium body, moderately dry finish with some resinous hop character hanging around. mildly astringent but not bad
D: Pretty good all around, nothing to write home about but I could definitely drink a couple. Its an enjoyable pint that goes down easy, the moderate dry finish leaves you wanting another sip
Serving type: bottle
