Beer looks very good with a brown, slightly red colour and beautiful head that had great retention. Smells pleasant with a strong hint of hops that gives way to some nice fruity notes, mostly citrusy. The taste knocks me back a bit at first very strong on the hops, but after a few drinks there is a definite malt to it as well, a bit strong for sure, and will keep me satisfied. while i like the taste, the feel of this beer is what really hooks me. It's difficult to put into words, but the best i can say is that this is what drinking a beer is supposed to feel like. A delicious beer and i could certainly drink another
Serving type: on-tap

Served from the bottle, bastard pours well with a generous oak, white head fluffy yet full. The bastard is dark, a rich copper appearance is top notch. Not the strongest smell but Im getting a faint yet sweet amber ale scent reminds me of some nuts. Toasty nuts.
Taste: The head itself is remarkable. I loved that delicious fluff. Anyhow the flavor is bold as hell, strong hoppy taste makes me want more. Thats what I look for in a beer. Flavor sticks with you. A bit bitter in the end however thats what I expected. It all works together in this ale's showcase.
Feel is spectacular, polar opposite of those watered down domestic brews which the back of the bottle rags on.
Overall I give the ale a 4.75
Would recommend to any folk who can handle stuff like this ;)
