This review is going to be quite biased because this was the first brew I've ever had from the cask. Under normal circumstances I probably would never order this beer, but it was being offered at Oldsmar Tap House, a delightful new bar that just opened here. My friend Sean, the guru of beer geekdom, wisely suggested that we should always order any beer that is available from a cask.
I'm so glad I did because this was literally one of the best beers I've ever tasted. The appearance constituted a solid gold color, with a tiny bit of a creamy head. The scent didn't leave much of an impression, it was malty with a slight phenol hint. However, the mouthfeel and flavor were astonishing smooth and refreshing. It was very lightly carbonated with a creamy wheat finish. I detected no bitterness in the flavor at all - which really raised the drinkability.
Although my friends and I were blown away by the tastiness of this beer, I have a feeling my impression of a bottle would be very different. I 'm excited about trying other varieties on cask at Oldsmar Tap House - which I highly recommend if you live in the Tampa Bay Area.

Good start to the head but it dies out relatively quickly. Spots for lace. Dark gold color. Clear.
Leans to the crystal malt aromas. There's enough hop to provide some balance.
The flavor is similar to the smell--quite British (earthy with dry caramel) with a good dollop of hop bitterness in the swallow. Relatively short aftertaste. Spritzy body. Round body.

3.44/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Clear transparent copper with a solid finger of white foam; short retention, mild lacing.
Caramel malt aroma, biscuit and bread forward. Slight sweetness to the scent.
Definite caramel malts, slightly dry hops. Sweetness about balanced with the nose - neither much more nor less.
Light feel, although there is a slight hop oiliness. Very balanced.
English pales aren't my favorite, but this is a balanced, easy-going beer. It actually reminds me of a slightly drier, slightly less sweet Boston Lager. Not a bad beer, and I wouldn't mind grabbing it again, but I'm not going to seek it out, either.
