3.8/5 rDev -0.3%
12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger off brown head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted malts, caramel, earthy hops, and a little fruitiness.
Taste: Toasted and caramel with some earthy hop bitterness and some fruitiness.
Mouthfeel: Chewy, a little bitterness, light bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Pretty nice English bitter. Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

3.05/5 rDev -19.9%
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Dark brown with a thin white head, no lacing on the glass.
Smell: Citrus, spices, malts, and alcohol.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of toasted malts, spices, and mild citrus. Some faint pine notes and bitters hops as well.
Overall: Ok beer, not my first choice for a holiday brew, but it is bold and will keep you warm on a cold winter night.
