4.28/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Slender raised glass brown bottle with a “Best Before” date on the back label.

Appearance: Very bright copper hue with a healthy off white lace, appetizing in appearance.

Smell: Sweet caramel from the crystal malt and an earthy hop aroma from the Goldings Hops. Clean to the nose with a faint touch of buttery diacetyl. Caramel apple?

Taste: Medium in body, bitter sweet palate from a perfect marriage of malt and hops. Malt profile is clean and slightly sweet with hints of biscuit and cracker to a mild husk in the end. Hops are lightly oily with an even steady hand of clean bitterness that cuts through the beer. Pear like fruitiness help to round out the brew. Earthy / leafy, oily and sweet flavour from the hops lingers into far into the after taste with a hint of steely crystal malt.

Notes: Following in the greatness of the ESB, this is a great beer but definitely a modern day English IPA. A beer I’d prefer to see in my fridge more often.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Orange/amber, with a hint of hazyness. Average foam.
In the smell earthly hop, english, with peppery notes, some tea hint. A bit warming. And floreal.
Pleasant taste, good maltiness, good english hopping, not light, but neither too strong. Balanced.
Bitterness in the aftertaste, not too long, with pepper and tea notes.
Good, great drinkability.
