look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured on-tap and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazed caramel-copper coloring with a filmy, bright-white head. Nose of cream and subtle bitterness. Flavors are creamy and bitter, very blended and balanced, with a clean finish. The aftertaste is minimal, with a steady sweetness. Full bodied and very tasty. Easy to drink with the lower ABV.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured a dark brass hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured round bready malts and a grassy hop spice.

The taste consisted of toasted bready malts, a touch of honey and an herbal and grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a gentle carbonation.

Overall a tasty sessionable bitter.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Poured a slightly hazy copper, with a moderately lacing off-white head. Grainy aroma, caramel notes, light floral hops. Light biscuity taste, caramel and toffee, subdued, and a touch of hop bitterness for balance. Not extremely flavorful, but mellow, and drinkable, and on the heavier side of light-bodied. Decent.

Serving type: on-tap
