4.03/5  rDev +12.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

1.5L "Flagon" matched with my new glass mug.

Appearance- A golden autumn colored body. About an inch and a half of wispy pure white head. A moderate amount of carbonation. Pleasing to look at.

Smell- Moderate hops and faint malt scents. - Pretty Run of the mill.

Taste- Amazing
There is a full malt body and then the hop bitterness came in towards the end of each crisp sip. The flavors were in balance and complemented each other.

Mouthfeel- Light on the tongue and the carbonation makes the beer finish very crisp.

Drinkablity- Very High - The beer finishes clean and without a strong aftertaste. And a value at $6 for 1.5L ~4.5 12oz bottles.

2.82/5  rDev -21.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Pours dark amber with a creamy off-white head.
Aroma is very malty with huge amounts of caramel, toffee and toasty malt. Little in the way of hops, a faint earthy and grassy note is just noticeable.
Flavours share the rich malt notes previously mentioned, before some grassy hops and a one-dimensional boring bitterness rolls through.
Carbonation is way over the top, creating quite a dry finish.

This beer pours a nice orange copper colour with decent carbonation that leaves a two finger creamy head with nice lacing,it has a nice vanilla,toffeeish malty nose to it,the mouthfeel is very nice with that vanilla/toffee flavour coming thru on the palette first up followed by a subtle hoppy bitterness but not overly bitter just right in my liking and a very sessionable beer.

A - Poured into a pint glass a fairly clear dark orange/copper colour with a couple of centimetres of off white head that falls away fairly quickly. Fair amount of lacing is left down the glass.
S - Some nice light toffee maltiness backed by some herbal and floral hop notes.
T - Much like the smell. Toffe maltiness with herbal and floral hop notes.
M - Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.
D - A decent enough beer. I'd drink it again but I wouldn't activly seek it out.
