I had this on a nitro-tap at a British Style pub in Little Italy, San Diego. I found this beer to be quite interesting. It had a nice semi cloudy look, with a nice brown/tan hue. What I found makes this ale unique was a lightly sweet taste, no bitter but just a smooth earthy drink.

Serving type: nitro-tap

From the firkin. Hazy, darker gold color, with shades of brown. Not much head to speak of, however there were a few decent spots of lace.

Nose is a bit earthy and lightly spiced. Pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice come into play, however all is done lightly.

A bit of toasty malt begins, followed by a bit of bitter pumpkin, and then the same spices that were present in the nose. Earthy hops in the background. This seems to lean toward malt and spices.

Medium body, very lightly carbonated. Not a whole lot going on, but interesting.

Serving type: cask
