Had on cask at the Old Toad. Pours very rich looking out of the tap, very smooth. Frothy lacing on the sides, the head bows into the center because of the lack of carbonation. Deep amber red color, very hazy but appealing. Aroma is full of both caramel malt tones and citrus hops, both of which are strongly present in the beer, but not overwhelmingly assertive. The flavors blend well with the low carbonation and cask character of the beer. Alcohol is not present in the taste at all and it is drinkable like a mild ale.
Serving type: cask

Dark amber red in color and pours a massive, frothy head.
Slight caramel, spicy hops, some pepper and a faint malt waft.
Flavors of the hop spice is instant, sweet caramelly malts, and a hop finish.
Hop bitterness all the way through, faint caramel malt backbone.
Overall, not my favorite from 'nitas, but I'd drink it again if offered.
