3.23/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 500 ml bottle bought in England.

A - Beer is a medium copper color with lots of orange. Crystal clear. Head is off white; moderately thick on initial pour. It faded to the thinnest of sheets and a strong lacing around the edges.

S - The aroma is a balance of bready malt and earthy hops. The hops give a somewhat aged (not fesh) impression. There is also a sweet brown sugar aroma and perhaps a bit of raisin.

T - Taste is balanced toward hops, but the hop flavor is a bit muddled and indistinct. The malt is mostly hidden. Midpalate I get an astringent hop flavor that reminds me of unsweetened tea. Dry finish fades very quickly.

M - Body is thinner than I expected. Low, slightly tingly carbonation. Low to moderate hop bitterness. Just a hint of alcohol.

O - This beer has some nice characteristics, but overall I find it lacking a malt backbone to tie it together. The hops are earthy and don't give a fesh clean aroma or taste, which would not matter so much if there was more malt for them to blend with. I remember this beer being bigger, maltier and just plain better only a few years back. It seems to have lost something.
