Hazy yellow brew with tons of white foam on a pillow-y white bubbles.

Definitely English. dry, bitter, and farmhouse-y. Not a mind blowing aroma. Nothing special, but nothing horrid.

Very bland and dry. Nothing stands out, but I wonder if this brew is significantly past its prime..?? Bitter, dry, biscuit'y ness is almost impossible to get over. Over carbonation is almost seltzer esque.

This brew is not horrible, but it does not excite me either. It's average and deserves to be rethought, perhaps it's the style that I just don't agree with...? Can't recommend.

Tried on draft, doesn't taste bad it's just very bland.

Pleasantly bitter and hoppy and thoroughly drinkable; a style I can totally appreciate when it's mild and drinkable and this certainly is. Not burdened by an abundance of excessive hops and palette-assaulting flavor and winds up being delicious; would love to see this canned like the current "series" offerings because if it stay sin bombers, even for the great price of $4.99, it'll keep getting overlooked.

Bottle as a trade extra. Thanks! Pours bright clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Strong aroma of lemon peel and orange rinds, some grass, not much else. Flavor is orange rinds and stale hops, some sweetness like honey, a bit of biscuit malt here. Light bodied and medium plus carbonation. Dirty unpleasant finish. Overall I’m not very impressed with this one.
