Brewed for JD Wetherspoons Spring Beer fest 2011 and slightly different at 5.2%. Looks quite nice, amber frothy head decent lacing. Smell muted but nice, floural hops, decent malt backbone slightly doughy. Taste is similar but hoppie rthan I expected, especially at first. Mellows out nicely and you get some sweet citrus and biscuity finish. Once again, I find almost all Cask ales to have amazing mouthfeel and this was no different. Smooth with perfect carbonation. Overall a very good beer, nothing exceptional but I would def have it again.
Serving type: cask

A - Deep ruby, rocky off white head. Solid lacing.
S - Medium intensity tones of nuts, caramel and grassy hops.
T - More of the same from the nose. Malt forward with a sweet toasty character finishing with an astringent grassy hop character, really not my thing personally but very true to style.
M - Refreshing and quaffable.
O - Amazing take on the style.
Serving type: on-tap
