Appearance- Big fluffy two fingers of eggshell head with little cake in the middle. I love that. Beer is hazy orange color. Head leaves slowly, reducing to a thin layer, leaves fractured lace.
Aroma- bready english malt, lively ale fruit, bright yeastiness, maybe shortbread or poundcake, forceful hop spice and alcohol punches through it all.
Taste- For starters, this brew is ludicrously balanced. It makes it very difficult to review becaus the flavors all hit the palate at the same time and meld togther beautifuly. I get a wonderful crisp red apple character, softed by very subtle diacetyl, full bodied, bready malt supports it all and gives the esters a nice home, hops creep in mid-sip and while never forgrounded, leave the final impression with a nice spicy/ juicy, bitterness that lasts into a slightly soapy aftertaste. Lemony taste emerges with warmth. Very interesting and artful interpretation of the style.
MF- Mid-wieght, full and fuzzy. Nice natural carbonation.
Drinakability- Had trouble keeping it in the glass long enough to review it.
