What the brewers say

“Lots of British malt plus Simcoe and Cascade hops.”

What our panel thought

“Strong pine, anise, and citrus hops initially. Soft toast, biscuit malt with a hint of low caramel behind. Low orange- and apricot-like esters. Strong, sweet candy-like orange flavor, similar to an Old Fashioned cocktail without the bitters or cherry. Citrus before sweet, and more fruit-oriented than hop.”

What our editors thought

“Floral cuts through the nose with very light citrus. In the sip, warming toasted-bread malt with echoes of floral and citrus. Hop-forward but not nearly as bitter as expected.”
