The beer is brown with a clear orange hue, a small tan head that leaves little lacing.

Some weak earthy aromas, dry grass, nuts.

Initially some brown sugar nuances, pear and rhubarb, a metallic bitterness.

Nearly no carbonation, flat and dry.

A bit bland, the bitterness was a bit offensive.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a dark brownish coper with a not too majestic head that leaves a small lid and some creamy lacing on the glass.

Smells of candy english hops along with a rather fruity malt. Some hints of almonds and herbal, almost feels like some noble hops. A bit weak and uniform overall.

Hops up front in the taste, with a very weak and light maltiness. Apart from some english hops with a herbal candy note to it, there really isnt much else going on here. Finishes really watery with a hint of chlorophyll.

Mouthfeel is very light, with a fitting, light carbonation, lightly astringent in the aftertaste.

The colour is warm brown; the liquid is clear. The two finger beige head slowly sinks to a thick inviting lid. No lacing occurs.

The smell is creamy and rounded with notes of raisins. Hay, figs, nuts, and bitter somewhat hoppy notes with hints of toffee.

The taste is dryer than I had expected. Quite a lot of English hops. Hints of raspberries, toffee, banana peels and nutty notes of Coke. Medium body. The aftertaste got a clean growing bitterness, some nuts and caramelised sugar. It got some unclean notes of dried flowers and hay.

The carbonation is mild; the liquid is creamy and a bit thick.

An OK pale ale, but I didn't like the flowery off-flavours.

A: Pours dark brown with hints of red. Small tan head dissipates instantly leaving almost no lacings.

S: Rather discrete smell (a nice way of writing weak), buttery malt with english floral hops.

T: Fruity, English-stylee. Butter and some sweetness to the malts. Floral hops.

M: Aftertaste is rather long and holds a dry bitterness. Body is medium and carbonation almost not existing.

D: A standard EPA, nothing to write home about.
