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

A - Slightly hazy dark orange with 3cm off white head that slowly subsides. Bit of lacing.
S - Some slightly citrus fruit notes above a toffee/caramel maltiness.
T - Pretty much the same as the smell; slight fruit touches with caramel and toffee maltiness dominating.
M - Medium body & medium carbonation. Bit of bitterness.
D - Nice enough but nothing to get excited by. Tone down the malt a touch and up the hops.

nice amber brown colour with a small white head. Good lacing.

Nice citrussy smell combined with a hint of nuttiness.

Solid caramel and nutty malts with a good balancing bitterness and moderate American hop profile.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A solid beer and certainly improved on a year ago.
