On cask at the brewery. They also had it on nitro and regular pour

A: Light amber haze with delicate white head, not too dense - a sign of proper cask conditioning

S: Toffee malt, light whiskey, sweet earthy hops, herbal. Again the word I'd use is delicate

T: Quite possibly the best cask ale I've had outside of the UK. They absolutely nailed the subtle and authentic aspects of a proper English cask ale. CAMRA would be proud

M: Smooth and full

O: One of the best offerings from SingleCut.

On tap at the brewery. I went with the traditional English pint at 50 degrees.

A - Light amber pour with a heart beige foam that retains well. Slight carbonation noted.

S - Smells of pale malts, and has a floral scent to it. there is a mild hop bitterness that lingers.

T - Really glad I went for the warmer pour. This has a dry taste with a slight sweetness of honey. A moderate amount of bitterness finishes this off. Really comes off as a tasty beer.

M - Very smooth with great balance. This is a beer you could sit back and have a few watching the folks in Astoria go about hteir business. Light feel and a dry finsih.

O - First try at a Singlecut beer and I was pretty impressed. I'd try more if they are like htis one.

On draft at Shorty's, NYC.

Poured a murky bronze hue with a wispy white cap. There was little retention and lacing.

The smell featured a light grassy hop and round malt.

The taste was well balanced with a lingering grassiness.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style with a dry finish.

Overall a nice pale ale. Easy enough to drink.

Picked up a growler at Hoptron Brewtique in Patchogue.

My first sampling of Singlecut's wares.

Appearance: Poured a hearty foam head in a pint glass. Light lacing.

Smell/Taste: Some caramel from the malts, biscuity- polishing off with non-overpowering hop, exactly what I would want from this style.

Complexity builds as it warms in the glass.

It was exactly the departure I wanted from a winter of heavy-hopping IPAs and APAs.

I would return to Keith on a regular basis, in fact I like it so much, It might delay my ordering of other Singlecut beers- feel like I'm always going to be in the mood for this one.
