I enoyed this beer on tap from JD McCliments in Putney Village. It's a terrific little place .
We sat at the bar and ordered wings and beer.
The beer arrived in a pint glass, and exceptionally cloudy. This beer is clearly unfiltered. I'm an avid homebrewer and my unfiltered beer has more clarity then this stuff. While it certainly was a tasty beer, it was also without a doubt occluded.
It had a mild head which reduced to a lace of bubbles on the glass.
It is a slightly sweet well balanced ale with no real hop standout, aside from slight citrusy hop notes.
Light to medium body drinkable beverage. It certainly struck a cord with this unfiltered delight. Just wish I was more prepared.
How about cold conditioning this beer guys?

New to the beer world from the perspective of drinking things you dont find commonly all over. This beer is my new favorite but like i said im new. It has a fruitier taste then what i usually drink and it was really easy going down, meaning it didn feel like a super strong ipa does. i really enjoyed it.
