ACBF sample

A-Pours a darker orange color. Head is thin and white.

S-Very mellow with the malt playing just as prominent role in the nose as the hops. Some citrusy hops.

T-A rather generic IPA flavor. Soft citrus hops. Caramel and pale maltiness. Some floral hops as well.

M-Medium bodied with some lingering bitterness. Alcohol hidden well. Regular carbonation.

O-It's biggest flaw is that it tastes like thousands of its IPA counterparts.

Neat, new brewery in MA, and Lakeville is pretty cool. Can't wait to try a bunch of these as I picked up a sampler of different ones. They seem to have an English style theme, which is not my fav, but it can be done well.

Pours a small fizzy bubbly slight creamy 1/4 finger head that at least fades semi slowly, not many bubbles streaming up from the etch either, a mostly clear amber orange slight reddish colored beer.

Nose is about what I expected, some herbal grassy hops, a bit earthy, with a fruitiness as well to them, a touch of an apple cider aroma, some light malts, maybe a touch of honey, pretty light.

Taste brings more of the Engish style hops, bitter earthy and herbal grassy flavors, a little tea in there, with more apple flavor and a touch of caramel malt, some honey malt as well. A decent balance of sweet malts and bitter hops, a bit too sweet overall for the style and for my enjoyment, wish is attenuated a bit more. It has a sweet apple juice flavor too which is meh, with woodsy earthy bitter hops that really ramp on the finish as it attempts to dry. Long bitter earthy hop finish with more apple juice and sticky feel.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb but it should have been a bit more, bit of a sticky finish.

Overall very unimpressed. Nothing really good about this beer, the sweetness is too much, under attenuated, lack of carbonation, hops are not so great that leave a bad bitter taste in your mouth, literally and figuratively, and that apple juice is bad. I really hope the other beers by them are a lot better or this brewery isn't going far.
