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".

Cask, served in a pint

The body sits a dull golden orange with a bubbly off-white cap. Huge sip marks cover the inside of the glass.

The nose has a little bit of everything from the hops. Pine needles, earth, spice, flowers, and a little bit of citrus bitterness. Bready malt and some toffee round out the nose.

Mildly hoppy, mainly earth and spice shining through before a rush of citrus and bready malt. The finish has some toffee notes with pine. The bitterness is pleasing. Never overpowering, pretty true to the style.

Creamy, full feel thanks to the cask. Low carbonation.

This was a nice little bitter that I wasn't expecting. Pretty authentic, good hop bill. Well-crafted.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Format : on cask at the Phoenixville brewpub.

Appearance: clear gold, with a small, quickly settling head and nice lacing that clings to the glass.

Aroma: mild bready malt; lightly sweet and floral. Subtle citrus.

Flavor: also quite mild; malt has a slightly nutty toasted bread quality; very gently hopped; low bitterness; some fruity and floral notes; a bit of caramel sweetness, but finishes semi-dry.

Feel: medium light bodied with lie carbonation; smooth and creamy on cask.

Overall: easy drinking and mild on taste; fairly traditional; notbad but a bit unexceptional.
