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

Crystal clear bronze color with a billowing fluffy off white head. Subtle nose of lightly kilned malt and a touched of buttered toast.Faint citric hops become present as the beer airs out.

Quite an interesting brew. Full mouthfeel. The beer seems to be struggling between being sweet and being bitter, a nice little fight goes on inside your mouth. Sweet buttered biscuit like flavors up front, whisks to grains and caramel along the mid palate with a touch of bright fruit. Finishes with a harsh english-style ale bitterness that sneaks up on you. Incredibly smooth for such the potency. Still undecided as to whether I love it or hate it.

I think overall I pretty much like it. The bitterness is harsh and grows and sneaks up on you, but the beers a sipper anyway. Not too deep or complex but definitely unlike anything I've ever had before.
