Reviewed from notes.

Pours a clear straw-golden color with a thin, receding white head and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings some light herbal and citrus hops plus a bit of bread, though as it warms there is far too much butter, beyond what is acceptable even in the most-permissive English styles. The flavor has the same faults, and the butter and toffee coming from the diacetyl is far out of balance and doesn’t just add a smooth creaminess, but instead takes over the entire beer. Light body with a bit of a creamy texture and a mild hop bitterness. This had some potential, but had one major flaw.
