12 West Brewing Company Billet

What the brewers say

English-style brown ale with aromas of roasted nuts and chocolate. Slight earthy hop finish to balance the toffee-like malt backbone.

What our panel thought

Aroma of piney-orange hops with some spicy notes; light caramel and toast. Fresh, woody hop flavor, with medium-low bitterness that lets malt flavors shine: pleasant bready sweetness, lightly toasted, lingering pleasantly. Smooth and malty.

What our editors thought

Slightly fruity berry-citrus nose backed by darker caramel and earthy hops. The sip is a touch thin, but the flavor is compelling: light caramel, citrus, and light roast layered into a concise package. Taut, focused.
