A: Bronze with an off-white head, light retention, good lace.

D: An all-around good brew.

Thanks Jer & Karen!

Crystal clear amber colour with a thick, fluffy off-white head. Decent retention and nice lacing.

Thick, caramel aroma with mild fruit. Definitely a malty EPA but still decent.

Rich, malty caramel flavour with rounded soft fruit esters. Moderate bitterness. Quite easy drinking.

Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. Good.

A soft, simple English ale with a lot of caramel malt. Not bad.

Amber body nice thick white head.

Very malty aroma, caramel and ginger cake.

Taste is sweet and well balanced hop notes combined with a crunchy maltiness.

Toffee start the flavours then the hops kick in bringing up floral notes and pepper hints.

Nice chewy mouthfeel and great carbonation.

decent enough EPA for when you feel like something slightly sweet

Pours a deep amber with an off-white head that leaves beads of lacing down the glass.

Aroma is malty, with bitter hops, rhubarb, apples, and a biscuity finish.
Taste is malty, followed by a banana and apple sort of taste, then a little biscuity flick before a bitter hoppy finish kicks in.

Mouthfeel is good, goes down pretty well.

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. I've tried this on 3 different formats now--cask, can and bottle. All are interesting, not sure which is my favorite.

A: light brown ale with great clarity and a 2-finger off-white foamy head.

S: lots of mash and malts, less sweet than some

T: mostly bitter and earthy with some light hints of sweetness

M: moderate carbonation and body

D: definitely would drink again

Appearance- Pours a light copper brown with a half finger width of creamy white head. Leaves nice lacing around the glass.

Smell- Grass, citrus (orange/lemon), sweet malts, touch of leafy hops

Taste- Same as the aroma: Sweet malts, grass, and citrus and light leafy hops. Also, there is a slight nuttiness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel has a little creaminess to it.

Overall- A tasty and easy drinking EPA by Badger. There is a good balance between sweet and bitter flavours. I enjoyed the creamy body. Definitely a "furst quencher".
