Category # B Subcategory (a-f) A
Subcategory - Ordinary Bitter
Comments - Very full fill, little to no head space. Visible CO2 cloud and slight gas hiss upon opening. Nice bottle presentation, clean and professional
Little to no malt aroma, Slight hop aroma detected, possibly eastern european Saaz like hop profile. Very little to no diacetyl. Pleasant aroma.
Beautiful color, very clear with no sediment, not cloudy. Nice head on pour, dissipated quickly
Strong hop bitterness up front with little hop flavor on finish. Hops do outbalance the malt as per style, but a slight caramel malt characteristic is missing. Clean, dry finish although slightly weak. Not necessarily a bad quality
Mouthfeel (as appropriate for style) 4/5
Light on both body and carbonation, again keeping nicely with style.
Overall Impression 7/10
Drinkable beer, full pint leave a slight dry bitterness. Front side hops are slightly overpowering just bordering on out of balance, but does fade fast so as not to consume the beer. Rather than decrease the hop bill, try increasing the crystal to bring a little caramel profile to the party. Great Beer38/50
