Unfiltered and so a bit cloudy in the glass. OK. More yellow than golden. Flavor is hoppy and piney and… woody? Not much for aroma.

Huge thanks to markro1979 for tossing me this one along with a bottle of fair maiden. It would only be right to drink these as fresh as possible so popping this in ep shortly after finishing fair maiden. Enjoyed in a batch 002 TB 22oz oversized snifter.

a - much like fair maiden a stunning example of how a beer should look. Deep murky amber that glows in the light and has a big frothy generous head that leaves milkshake like lace. Although more watery, still looks great.

s - nose is fairly piney and resinous...some candied sugar in the finish...a bit of alcohol sweetness.

t/m/ o - much different from fair maiden...raw and over hopped in comparison. A bit thin and boozier than fair maiden and overall more of a lighter body with a more resinous hopping. Light and good, but a shadow of fair maiden. Worth checking out none-the-less but not a standout for the style by any means.
