The beer was a nice bright bronze with an off-white head and nice lacing. Looked just like a London Pride.

Nice aroma of pine resin, grapefruit and crackers. Very nice!

The taste was very solid. Nice hop bitterness that seems to coat your mouth. Underlying citrus that compliments the nuanced malt sweetness. Seems very well balanced. A bit of floral flavor about 2/3rd through the beer.

Nice low carbonation level seems perfect for this beer. Extremely easy to drink. A perfect session beer that goes well with food. This one is a keeper!

2.55/5  rDev -23.2%

Appearance: Vermillion body. Thick, nitro like head that quickly disappears.

Aroma: Biscuits, sugar syrup, rotten grapefruit, a hint of flowers.

Taste/MF: way off. Very sweet and syrupy. Rotten fruit flavors but very little bitterness. Biscuit malts are overshot by sweet, syrupy fruits.

Drinkability: Low. Unbalanced and too sweet, muddled.
