3.53/5 rDev 0%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Lightly hazed, mahogany-hued body with a thinnish, whitish head.
Smell: Aroma of toasted bread crumbs marked by notes of English hops and caramel (though light) and fruit (though even lighter).
Taste: Lightly sweetish toasted malts with a touch of dry caramel. Slight fruitiness. Earthy, lightly herbal English hop character with a medium-plus bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with a recurrence of bready malts.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, a wee bit thin for my liking. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A worthy attempt at the style and an okay, perfectly drinkable beer. Personally, I'd prefer a slightly bigger body and greater inclusion of caramel flavor, but, again, that's just me.
Serving type: on-tap

A: A slight burnt orange hue with an ivory head on the top.
S: A bready aroma greets ones nose, with a faint aroma reminiscent of hops infused with honey.
T: A very pleasant balance between the hops and malt. After the initial tasting came a slight tanginess and lingering bitterness that bites the tongue. I also noticed some pleasant floral after essence. Delightful little brew.
M: Just slightly carbonated and not too heavy of a mouth feel. It leaves a bit of ones tongue feeling a bit dry, but nonetheless pleasant mouth feel.
O: I would like to drink this beer on the back of a beach house, seeing that it already has the skull on the label. I enjoyed this craft brew, it was very surprising. I would not mind having another, it was a pleasant and refreshing beverage on this long Saturday evening.
Serving type: 12 ounce can.
