(cask draft at Johnny Brenda's - served in a shaker glass)

First time in JB's - don't know how up on their cellar work they are...

The pour looks well enough... hardly brilliantly clear... rosy-cheeked yellow-amber liquid... foam is fine and compact, as if through sparkler - couldn't see the tap - lasts all the way down, frosty lacing

Thing that stuck out was how damn bitter it buzzed... strong, tea-like tannins, as if the tea bag was left in the water way too long, squeezed out dry... toasty pale malt treads lightly at the bottom, but can hardly be seen below the harsh hoppy fog

Well... I'll have to try this again elsewhere... one could tell the right flavors are there

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a rich and deep golden color with a creamy foam topping and plenty of lacing. Aroma of doughy malts and lightly citrusy hops. In the taste, a firm malt foundation with earthy, rooty hop character. Firmly bitter, this fits the style quite nicely. The body is light, smooth, and gently carbonated. Refreshing and bitter. Overall, this was a really good "real ale".
