Had this on cask. I can’t refuse a cask-conditioned ale!

This was the surprise find of a recent festival. Wish I had a chance to try more of their brews but their kegs kicked early.

Their bitter pours a golden toasty with that tight foaming of a cask-conditioned ale.

There’s a light toasted biscuit note to the aroma. The flavor has this incredibly flavorful biscuity-toast note which balances out the lightly hopped notes. Smooth finish. I could drink this all day.

Had on tap at the bar in a 5oz pour.

Poured with a slight dark amber color and a dense head that dissipated slowly.

Smelled clean with a light scent of pine.

Taste was bitter and with a slight pine note. it flowed down the tongue smoothly then left the mouth with a slight dry feeling.

Overall it was good experience.

Had this at the West Coast Brew Fest 2013, on cask. Poured nice hazy medium straw color with minimal head.
The smell was a pleasant dry hay and grain.
The taste had a smooth grain flavor. Pretty mild.
The texture was a softer crisp with minimal carbonation (obviously).
It's enjoyable and an easy drinker.
