Clear bronze hued with a tall stack of sandy white froth that sticks around and shows nice lacing.
Bready malt base with a trickle of caramelly sweetness. It provides a solid canvas to bounce the hop variations off of, if little else noteworthy. The EKGs are herbal, tea-like, with squeals of patina-ed copper, and peach marmalade. They aren't necessarily my favorite hop, but the aroma showcases what they bring to the table.
The mouth gets the same template of lightly sweet, bready malts. Solid but unremarkable, and it doesn't exactly jive with the English lean of the hopping. A dab of peach fruitiness midway, then the hops bring a bundle of bitter herbs, then fade fairly quickly. It rides outs with lingering caramel maltiness, heather, and black tea.
Moderately low carbonation Generally quaffable though there's a bit of awkwardness in the mouth and it comes off a bit like a karaoke version of an English IPA
