2.14/5  rDev -42.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Pours a slightly hazy dark golden copper color with apricot colored edges and a two finger frothy, off-white head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention, taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing in its path.

The aroma of this beer is pretty bland with a floral, perfume-like hop presence that's countered by a sweet caramel malt backbone. Somewhat earthy and resinous with dirt/soil-like quality along with grass and pine needle but the hop presence in the nose is surprisingly weak. Sweet malt character that's reminiscent of crystal and English malts giving off some caramel, toffee, toast and roasted nut.

On the fuller end of medium body with earthy hop bitterness that lingers over the sweet malt backbone into an astringent metallic finish. This beer starts off okay reminding me of an English bitter with some pine needle, grass and earthy soil countered by a sweet malt backbone but there's a really unpleasant lingering chemical flavor that comes in mid-palate which continues long after the finish. Some syrupy caramel sweetness with toffee and hazelnut followed by metallic adjunct like sweetness that kind of ruins things for me. The description of this beer is vague but whatever it is, they shouldn't have "dusted it off" in my opinion.
