i had this on tap a few weeks ago and it seemed tastier and more translucent. it's cloudy out of the bottle which adds a nice depth to the color.
A- hazy foggy orange honey amber brew with little bits (yeast?) floating around at the bottom. creamy off-white head settled fast to 1/8in leaving minimal remnants of lace.
S- orange peel and apricot, port wine, sour grapes, caramel malt, and a dash of sticky citrus hops at the end.
T- sour bread, fruity yeast, sweet malts, grains, slight pine sap and herbal citrus hop aftertaste that sticks around for awhile.
MF- sticky and tart. drinks fast but seems to go down slow stickin to your throat. nice mild carbonation.
D- for everything that's there, the taste seems diluted which offsets the slightly thick consistancy in a weird way. drinkin one makes me want something different, something more english.
