12oz can into a snifter. Thanks to BA CanadianGhetto for the hookup with this. The brew appears a hazed golden yellow color with a finger plus white cap. The head remains with solid retaining powers producing patchy lacing as it fades.
The aroma is pleasantly hoppy with notes of citrus like lemon peel and orange rind. A hint of grassy herbs and faint pine. Somewhat catty with a fruity to floral aspect that increases with intensity as the brew warms up along with a soft touch of solvent alcohol.
The flavor is resinous with hoppy bitterness that is catty and herbal with a zesty component of rind and pith of oranges, lemons and grapefruit. A touch of bready malt backing before finishing more fruity to floral with a faint noticeable touch of alcohol. As the brew warms up, it gets a bit green with a almost vegetative yeastiness.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is quite enjoyable with a mellow yeastiness and alcohol feel. Probably the best real ale offering I have tried to date. Thanks again Will.
