This beer has a wonderful hop and floral aroma, with a slight hint of citrus. The taste is dominated by hops, which gives way to a slightly sour (but pleasing) taste. There are some some floral and citrus followings. The beer is a bit hazy and is wonderfully golden. The head is nonexistent on this beer.

Had this at the wonderful Alaskan Brewing Co. Tap Room. This beer poured a lightish amber, aroma was earthy and had a hint of grassiness or hay. Nice head retention, decent lacing. Taste was hop dominated but not overdone. I detected some hints of cheery? Probably not, but this beer was pretty good. I usually feel that domestic bitters do not measure up to our U.K. brothers offerings. This wwas a nice beer and I like this brewing co.

Pours a light amber with little head. The aroma is a sharp, malty smell with a little sourness at the end. The taste is roasted grain and some hops. Light and a little thin, almost more akin to a small beer in taste than a bitter. The mouthfeel is a little light. Okay to drink, and I'm glad I got to try it, but nothing I'd go back to.

Had this on tap at the the Red Onion. Arrived at the table nicely chilled in a shaker pint glass. Was a copper amber color with a thin wisp of off-white head that left scant lacing. Aroma was malt and floral hops. Taste was slight caramel and bready malts with an understated and pleasing hop finish. Was a tad thin, my only issue with this brew but it was exceedingly drinkable.
