A - Arrived a copper color with an inch or so of head. Darker than I expected. Bubbly head lasted longer than I expected, but didn't really leave any lacing. Nice looking beer.

S - Nothing significant, but a nice mix of citrus hops and light malt.

T - Follows the nose. Basic, but really nice. The cask absolutely imparted a woody character to the beer. Lots of subtleties.

M- Medium bodied and soft. Not flat like I expected from a cask.

O - Great experience. Hard to judge based on the cask preparation. It's nice to have a beer at a bar that has carbonation and isn't freezing cold. Would buy again!

Poured into a pint glass...

A: Finger of off white head with nice lacing and long lasting head retention. Very pretty, dark copper/amber color.

S: Some citrus and pine, earthy notes. Sweet bready malts hanging out too. Smells nice.

T: Toasted caramel malts followed by a nice spicy citrus/piney hop bitterness. Nice and balanced, sweetness and bitterness work very well.

M: Medium bodied with a noticably high level of carbonaion, something I wasnt expecting. Just a bit of oily hop slickness. Good drinkability too.

O: A nice, local rendition of a spring time hoppy amber red. Its flavorful, easy drinking, and quite sessionable. Safe to say this and their Porter are my favorites from them.
